First night success!!
on the 18th Jul 2018
I have always been a snorer but over the last couple of years my snoring has got worse and I developed a sleep apnoea. My wife has become at her wits end and it was time to take action!!! After trying anti snore sprays and nasal strips with limited success I decided to try a MAD device. With some trepidation due to the price I purchased the Somnguard AP2. The fitting instructions appeared complex, however with a very good online video fitting was relatively easy although a little fiddly. First night of use the mouth guard felt bulky and I was worried it would keep me awake, I drifted off and woke up with my wife still next to me fast asleep!!! Success!! It will still take a bit to get used to but I hope it continues to give me and my wife restful sleep!!
All good so far!

Having worn a number of the more basic SomnoGuard 3s previously I've realised that this is much more suited. Gives a good jaw opening as well as advancement, and I was so glad to hear my fiancee saying how much quieter I am now! My dentist more recently said that bruxism is quite bad, so this hinged product with good swivel room is better for protecting that too.
Seems to work well

It seems to work well in terms of stopping most snoring; my partner is definitely getting better sleep. It's can be a little uncomfortable sometimes, and takes a little time to get used to, but I'm finding this improves with time. My jaw and teeth do feel a little strained in the morning, but it fades as the day progresses. My main concern with the SomnoGuard was that I have a crown on one of my smaller molar teeth, and I've read that these devices don't work well with crowns, but this hasn't been a problem. However, if you did have a crown on any of your front six teeth I can imagine it would be quite different, as these take the brunt of the effort of keeping the lower jaw forward. Overall, I'm please with this purchase, and happy that I spent a little more on the version that allows some movement laterally.
My safety gadget

This is my third SomnoGuard and I couldn't manage without it. I suffer from sleep apnoea and snoring. My wife was being badly disturbed by the snoring. I eventually purchased my own SomnoGuard when it first came out. I wouldn't be without it. Together with my Nozovent our nights sleep is not disturbed. I would recommend this to every sufferer. I rated it 9 out of ten because it doesn't stop me snoring when I've had one or two drinks which is no fault of the item!
