If you are unfamiliar with the boil-and-bite technique that is used to custom fit your SnoreMate it can seem a little intimidating. Some people avoid purchasing a snoring mouthpiece that needs to be fitted before use because they are scared they will ruin it.
If this sounds like you, you can take comfort in knowing that these devices can be reheated a few times. So, don't stress, if you don't get the fit correct right away. All you need is a pot, two bowls, and some type of timer.
Check the fit right away. If it is not right begin the process again from the start. If it feels right you may be tempted to cut away that tab. Try to resist the urge to do that quite yet. After you have used it one or two nights, you may find that you need the lower jaw extended more or less. You will be grateful you did not cut the tab away yet. Once you are sure it is a good fit go ahead and cut the tab off.
Always store your SnoreMate in the case it comes with for protection and to keep it clean. Speaking of cleaning, this should be done after every use. SnoreMate is easily cleaned using toothpaste or mouthwash.
