Snore Eliminator actually offers a few different products, so if this is one you are considering, you may want to become familiar with all of your options. It is important to note that although all products are made from nontoxic hypoallergenic materials there is no mention of the material being BPA- or latex-free. Also, none of the products are cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Read more about the most popular product in my Snore Eliminator review.
The original Snore Eliminator gets molded to your mouth using a boil-and-bite technique. It does have a small breathing hole, but it does not allow for lower jaw adjustments. It can be cleaned using mouthwash, toothpaste, or denture cleaner. The snoring mouthpiece is also marketed to be suitable to worn by people who grind their teeth.
The newer generation of this mouthpiece is also customized using the boil-and-bite technique. However, this version allows for adjustments to lower jaw placements. There are clear measurements to aid in finding your preferred setting. It features precision lock technology to ensure the placement is not lost during the night, and it also has a breathing hole
This is a one-size-fits-all chin strap that wraps around your chin and the crown of your head. It is made of cotton and neoprene, and is supposed to hold your jaw in a "normal" position while you sleep. The makers actually suggest that by wearing this you can retrain the tissues in your throat and mouth to return to their proper size. The makers also claim that this strap can treat snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, daytime fatigue, ADHD, depression, morning headaches, bloodshot eyes, memory problems, irritability, heartburn, and limb-jerking. These are certainly serious claims to make for a $20 piece of fabric.
The main difference between this version and the original is that this one has wider straps that are said to be more comfortable. It is also blue while the original was black. The makers state that this version treats all the same concerns and that it is scientifically proven to treat symptoms of sleep apnea and sleep deprivation. Of course, there are no links to any case studies supporting such claims.
