SomnoGuard SP Soft mandibular
on the 6th May 2018
Having used the SomnoGuard 3 (£39.99) quite successfully for a few years I thought I'd give the SomnoGuard SP Soft mandibular a go. Yes it's more expensive, more difficult to fit (it took me 3 attempts) and awkward to fit the connecting strips, but I found the end result much better. I now often wake up with the guard still in place, when previously I would remove it in my sleep in the early hours. It's more comfortable and seems to work better.

It does work - which is great. However, be warned it is very hard to set up and very uncomfortable to wear. After three weeks I still can’t wear it for the whole night. But like I say, it does stop snoring!
Not meeting our expectations.

I have bought a SomnoGuard SP Soft for my husband. He had previously used a SomnoGuard AP device and had not been impressed with it. Hence, we decided to try a different model. Currently he has been using the SonmoGuard SP Soft for a few weeks now, on the maximum advancement of 10mm. Unfortunately the device has not stopped his snoring. What is more, the plastic bands are hard to fit on and they started to bow outwards already during the first night. This made us concerned that they would snap pretty soon. For this reason my husband started attaching a second band on each side, in a crossing position, to make the connection between the plates stronger. The problem is, that he needs take the extra bands off in the morning in order to clean the space between the plates and then play with them at night again.
Works for me

I wish I had come across this years ago. I used to snore so loudly I would wake myself, let alone my partner. This product is so effective that I wear it on my own so that I get a good nights sleep. Easy to fit and easy to adjust. I've had mine just under two years and would thoroughly recommend.

Easy fitting with simple adjustment of degree of mandibular advancement. Not too bulky in the mouth and possible to move jaw and breath through mouth a little. It works!

I tried this because i was travelling and could not use my CPAP where i was going. I found fitting it was quite difficult and frightening. Once fitted it took a long time trying to fiddle with the band's to get the right setting, and this was hard work as they are very a very tight for into the nipples and I worried I would break the device. Building up tolerance was very slow and I can still only use it for a couple of hours. Sadly i still find I am waking and snoring so possibly the mandibular advancement device is not for me..... An expensive fail possibly but better than nothing if CPAP is not possible. It is very bulky in the mouth. I would love something which is less intrusive.

I was sceptical but took the plunge having been told my snoring wasn’t acceptable and that I was stopping breathing. Very easy to mould; takes a bit of setting correctly and getting used to, but night sweats stopped immediately and am now sleeping more soundly than I have for years.
Peace at last!

My snoring had gradually become worse to the point that I had started sleeping in the spare room so that my long suffering husband could get a proper sleep as he often has to get up early. Having researched online and read previous reviews I decided to give the Somnoguard SP a go. I found the instructions reasonably easy to follow and fitted the device without a problem. Spending time making sure of a good fit is worth the effort. The first night it felt a bit strange to wear however it has stopped the snoring, Result! We are now both getting a good nights sleep as my husband used to spend all night prodding me awake so neither of us slept well, and the minor discomfort soon passed as I have gotten used to wearing it. I would highly recommend this product. It has been a minor miracle and peace has been restored!
Works well for me

I previously tried a cheaper product from another manufacturer to see if an advancement device would work for me in principle.I found that the cheaper item worked, but that it was hard to get a consistent fit.So... I took the plunge and bought one of these. I had to make two attempts at moulding the device to get a good fit, but now that I've got a good fit it stays in well. The fact that it allows a fair bit of jaw movement up/down and side-to-side makes it more comfortable than the cheaper device I tried. I initially tried the suggested default advancement setting, but found I had to increase the advancement by one notch to fix my snoring problem. It works for me, anyway.
Excellent product, excellent company, thoroughly recommend!

Ok, so my wife has been giving me grief about my snoring for years. I had the hard version of this product for a while and it made very little difference with my snoring continuing to annoy my good lady. I purchased this soft version about 4 weeks ago and the difference has been amazing. There is a little discomfort at first (I set it to the maximum advancement setting), it's slightly uncomfortable when it first goes in each night and my teeth seem to have to find their way home each morning when I take it out but all of these issues are minor when compared to the results. My snoring has stopped completely.It is the most expensive product in the range but worth every penny. Before this I was considering surgery. I think it's effective enough for sufferers of sleep apnoea and even those poor folks who need to plug themselves into a machine at night.BSSAA have a great website with easy and clear navigation and product descriptions and, having ordered a couple of products from them in the past, I can say that their customer service is spot on.I would thoroughly recommend both the SP Soft product and BSSAA to anyone who wants to stay married. My wife has now had to find other reasons to moan about me - thankfully snoring is not one of them!
