Unable to use
on the 27th Mar 2017
I don't want to give this a bad review as I don't think it's the product that's bad. I was unable to use this at all as it just wouldn't allow me to get my jaw far enough forward to put my lower jaw in the tray when the two halves were joined together. I don't really have much of an over bite but there must be something odd about my anatomy.
All good so far!

Having worn a number of the more basic SomnoGuard 3s previously I've realised that this is much more suited. Gives a good jaw opening as well as advancement, and I was so glad to hear my fiancee saying how much quieter I am now! My dentist more recently said that bruxism is quite bad, so this hinged product with good swivel room is better for protecting that too.
Seems to work well

It seems to work well in terms of stopping most snoring; my partner is definitely getting better sleep. It's can be a little uncomfortable sometimes, and takes a little time to get used to, but I'm finding this improves with time. My jaw and teeth do feel a little strained in the morning, but it fades as the day progresses. My main concern with the SomnoGuard was that I have a crown on one of my smaller molar teeth, and I've read that these devices don't work well with crowns, but this hasn't been a problem. However, if you did have a crown on any of your front six teeth I can imagine it would be quite different, as these take the brunt of the effort of keeping the lower jaw forward. Overall, I'm please with this purchase, and happy that I spent a little more on the version that allows some movement laterally.
My safety gadget

This is my third SomnoGuard and I couldn't manage without it. I suffer from sleep apnoea and snoring. My wife was being badly disturbed by the snoring. I eventually purchased my own SomnoGuard when it first came out. I wouldn't be without it. Together with my Nozovent our nights sleep is not disturbed. I would recommend this to every sufferer. I rated it 9 out of ten because it doesn't stop me snoring when I've had one or two drinks which is no fault of the item!
