August 2018 Update: SnoreFreeNow is no longer an active selling product. To view snoring mouth guards currently for sale see anti-snoring devices.
Since SnoreFreeNow uses a special stabilizer handle, you will find the process to be a little different than what you may have done in the past with other mandibular advancement devices (MADs). If this is your first time fitting an oral appliance, rest-assured that it is not nearly as challenging as you may be telling yourself it is right now.
To get started, you are going to need your mouthpiece, the handle, a small pot and bowl, and a clock, watch, or smartphone app with a second hand.
Get Comfortable with the Device First
Due to the design of SnoreFreeNow it is a good idea to do a “dress rehearsal” of the fitting process before actually heating it. Attach the handle to the rectangular hole on the device and insert in your mouth, so your upper teeth get covered by the U-shaped section. The flange should be behind your lower teeth.
Extend your lower jaw forward, so you touch the lower part of the handle with your teeth. Bite down. When the device is heated it is important to try to get the bite right the first time your teeth make contact with the material because you only want one solid bite into the softened plastic.
Push the snoring mouthpiece against your upper lip while you make a sucking action, as if you are drinking through a straw.
Once you are comfortable handling your SnoreFreeNow mouthpiece it is time to do the process for real. Begin by bringing a pot of water to boil. Remove it from the heat. Submerge your mouthpiece for a maximum of 50 seconds. Soaking it longer can cause the device to shrink.
Remove from the hot water and submerge in cold water for three seconds. Place it in your mouth just as you practiced. Bite into the material, and hold your mouth firmly in place for 30 seconds. Remove it from your mouth, and soak it in a bowl of cold water for about a minute. The cool temperature will harden the impression that you just made. Test the device, and repeat the process, if needed. To learn about the device performance read my experience with SnoreFreeNow.
