The SnoreWizard is made by a United Kingdom-based company and has spread across to Australia, South Africa, and into the United States. It was a man by the name of David Hawkes who invented the SnoreWizard in an effort to correct this own snoring problem. Fast Systems Limited; the company behind SnoreWizard sells a variety of innovative and high-quality products, including this one to consumers all around the world.
This device is considered a mandibular advancement device and like all others corrects snoring by pulling forward the lower jaw ultimately tightening throat muscles and clearing air passages. While this method of snoring prevention does not work for everyone, the developers of this product suggest a 92% success rate. This is a bold claim as several studies confirm that MAD’s are effective in 80% to 85% of cases.
It is constructed of a safe soft plastic material and is a one-size fits all solution that does not involve any type of drugs. The front of the unit features a breathing hole that accommodates just about any type of sleeper.
During the sales pitch, the manufacturer suggests that its product was tested by a “leading professor of respiratory medicine” who confirmed its effectiveness. Unfortunately, they provided no further information indicating exactly who the professor was and what methods were used in the testing process. The inability to back up such claims can be damaging to the devices credibility.
What’s different about it?
In a market where so many manufacturers are competing to sell a stop snoring mouthpiece, one has to differentiate their product from all others. Often times, you will see companies who seemingly appear overnight all selling an identical boil and bite mouthguard with all sorts of exaggerated claims. Within a few months, these companies are replaced with a new wave of startups who repeat the same mistake as the others did.
Creating an innovative product is one step that so many forget to include in their business plan. Fast Systems Ltd. brought to market one of the first mouthguard devices that are ready to use out of the box. While a bit of trimming with a sharp pair of scissors may be necessary to achieve maximum comfort, no heating or boiling is necessary. Since many people have a difficult time fitting a boil and bite unit, having an oral appliance that bypasses this step gives this product an edge over several of its competitors.
In addition, this apparatus has breathing holes which are found in very few MAD’s. This is a necessary feature for those who tend to breathe through their mouth while sleeping. Also, allergy and cold suffers require a breathing solution while having blocked nasal passages. The SnoreWizard allows snorers to breathe freely in this case.
Cost and availability
Having access to this snoring mouth guard is simple if you reside in the UK, Australia or South Africa. You can simply visit the manufactures website and purchase directly. However, in the United States, there are a handful of distributors who promote and sell this device. They can be found on eBay, Amazon, Google Shopping or similar online retailers.
The average cost (in USD) is $59.99 with shipping charges of $5.00. This is slightly higher than the average price of a similar unit but keep in mind this is a unique product that can not be found elsewhere.
User feedback and reviews
Being an as seen on TV product, there is certainly no shortage of customers who are willing to provide feedback in the form of a review. Most reviews are positive in nature, assuring us that this gadget actually works. People have credited it with saving their marriage and having the best night sleep in a long time. There were even quite a few who have tried it as an alternative to Obstructive Sleep Apnea CPAP and have had moderate success.
As for negative feedback, some complained of a dry throat while others experienced excessive drooling. Others were unable to get over the initial discomfort that is commonly associated with just about every MAD on the market today. Aside from these complaints, the general conscientious is that it actually works.
Listed below are a few comments that were left by actual reviewers. (Source: Buzzillions)
“The snore wizard is great! I am not overweight but do snore quite heavily. Simple to use. Teeth/gums can be slightly sore the morning after. Soreness will cease after 15 – 20 minutes when you wake. ” -KB
“WELL, day 1, NO SNORING AT ALL! We both woke up in shock that it not only worked, but so well and immediately! I am SO happy I can’t even tell you!” -Jen
“Was to large and bulky for a female with an average sized mouth. Unable to shape it to fit. Need to offer sizes” -Anonymous
Buy or pass?
The SnoreWizard is a unique product that many have confirmed to be a viable solution to solve their snoring problem. While there are a few naysayers, the vast majority of people who have actually tried this device can agree that is in fact effective.
As for design, the creators nailed it with an innovative fitting process that does not involve dealing with scalding hot water or biting down to create a custom piece. Although they say that it works right out of the box, you may want to consider doing a little trimming with a sharp pair of scissors in order to get the best fit. In many cases, this is not even necessary.
I also prefer the breather hole design that is included in this piece yet left out of so many others. This is one necessary feature that I always look for while making a purchase decision. Quite a few people buy a mouthpiece without this feature are quickly become disappointed with the results as the piece is more likely to fall out while sleeping.
If you are in search of a no-hassle solution to fix your snoring problem, you will likely be satisfied with this products. It is constructed of a thinner than average material that makes it comfortable to wear, easy to use and affordable.
There are of course better options available that are in the same price range. For instance, the Zquiet costs the same yet offers several additional features in return. I own one of these and have recommended it to several of my friends and family members who have a snoring problem. My Zquiet review has more information on this device including an overview of my personal experience.
This product works right out of the package and does not require a complicated fitting process. The “living hinge” allows you to take a drink of water or even communicate with the device installed. I found it to be very comfortable and much less intrusive than larger mouthpieces such as the SnoreWizard.
Which mouthpiece should I buy?
The anti-snoring mouthpiece is one of the most highly effective stop snoring solutions available. With over 100 different products to choose from, deciding which one to buy can be challenging.
As a snorer and product reviewer, I have tried many of these devices and created a list of recommended devices that will help to make this decision much easier.Share This Post:
