SnoreMender PS is the only anti-snoring mouthpiece incorporating Pressure Shift™ technology. This moves pressure away from the weak lower front teeth, and away from the tips of all the teeth, to prevent aching teeth.
Soft - SnoreMender PS is made from soft pliable medical plastic, with no hard edges to rub against your mouth and tongue.
Small - SnoreMender PS is an elegant efficient design with no wasted material, so it is not bulky in your mouth.
Flexible - SnoreMender PS opens and closes with your mouth. This allows you to close your mouth completely, or open it wide, while wearing the device.
Breathing - SnoreMender PS lets you breathe normally, through mouth and nose. Many alternative devices either totally or partly stop you breathing through your mouth, making them useless if you have a cold, and uncomfortable all the time.
Quick - SnoreMender PS is a single moulded piece of soft plastic. It takes a second to put in at night and a second to take out next morning.
Easy - SnoreMender PS is made in a single piece so when you are fumbling around in the dark at night trying not to wake your partner, you don't have to fiddle around putting it together - just fold it and pop it in your mouth.Dentures
The SnoreMender uses the front 6 teeth in each jaw. It pulls inwards on the upper teeth and pushes outwards on the lower teeth.
If the denture (upper or lower) includes just one of these teeth, it is normally OK, but each person is different - you need the other front 5 teeth to be healthy and strong.
If it is a partial denture and 2 or more of the 6 front teeth in a jaw are missing, the SnoreMender should not be used, because it may push the denture out of place during the night, and it may end up with too much pressure being placed on the remaining natural teeth.
If it is a full denture then it depends on how well the dentures stay in place at night, so each person is different, and the only way to know is to try it. We have customers with full dentures who use the SnoreMender very successfully.
The SnoreMender pulls back on the top front 6 teeth and pushes out on the lower front 6 teeth. If these teeth are natural teeth then there shouldn't be a problem.
If they are implants, the risk is that the implants may move or come loose, so if any of the front 6 teeth in either jaw are implants, you should not use any sort of jaw advancement device, including SnoreMender, unless your dentist approves.
The SnoreMender pulls backwards on the front upper 6 teeth and pushes outwards on the front lower 6 teeth. If the bridge doesn’t involve these teeth then it will not affect use of the SnoreMender.
Bridges are almost always very strong, but they can vary, and some are more delicate than others.
If the bridge is just replacing a single tooth from the front 6 in a jaw, then it should be OK unless the bridge is particularly weak (some bridges are simply stuck to the adjacent teeth).
If it is replacing more than 1 tooth, then it will depend on how well it is anchored. If it is just anchored to single teeth on either side, then those teeth can end up with a lot more pressure on them.
Because there is no standard rule, you should check with your dentist before using a SnoreMender (which is a type of 'Mandibular Advancement Device'), to make sure they are happy for you to do so.
Crowns / Caps
The way the SnoreMender works is to pull inwards on the upper front 6 teeth and push outwards on the lower front 6 teeth – the other teeth are not affected.
Crowns are usually very strong, even in front teeth. However they do have a natural lifetime (the average is 5-7 years, with some lasting less than a year and others 20+ years) and when they are getting close to coming off, quite a small thing can trigger that.
Unfortunately, because crowns do naturally come off, e.g. if there was a fitting problem, or the glue didn't work properly, or simply because of their age, we cannot accept any liability if it did happen.
