What is the Snore Eliminator?

The Snore Eliminator is a price leader – 2 for $47

The Snore Eliminator is a stop snoring mouthpiece that was designed to be effective and affordable. Sylvan Inc. based out of North Myrtle Beach South Carolina is the company behind this product. It is owned and operated by Entrepreneur Sylvan Newby. The actual device was designed by Dr. William Vachon, a Myrtle Beach oral surgeon who has been practicing for 15 years now.  The oral appliance was recently released into the market in October of 2011 and has since become a commonly discussed snoring solution across several blogs and message board.

The device itself is classified as a “therapeutic mouth guard used to prevent snoring” and is considered to be a mandibular advancement device. It works by positioning the lower jaw forward so that it slightly protrudes from its original position. As a result, internal muscles and fat are pulled forward, clearing the airway. This procedure for correcting snoring has been proven in clinical trials and used for over two decades now. An overwhelming majority of people who have used similar guards to prevent snoring have had success.

Like many others, it can be molded at home with the use of hot water using the following process:

  • Using your stove or microwave, heat a bowl of water to boiling temperatures. Remove from heat source and set aside.
  • Unwrap the Snore Eliminator and place the breather spacer in the front hole
  • Carefully submerge the entire device into the boiling water for a few seconds then remove
  • After a few seconds, ensure that it is no longer scalding hot by touching it to your skin.
  • Insert into the mouth and firmly bit down while pushing your cheeks in for several seconds. Meanwhile, continuously suck in to remove as much air from your mouth as possible.
  • Remove the entire device and place in a bowl of ice-cold water. It will help to prepare this water ahead of time.
  • Check to ensure that you have achieved the desired fit. If not, you may repeat the process a couple of time.

The secret behind the mouthguards ability to reshape itself is due to the material in which it is made from. While the manufacturer does not specify exactly what it uses to create its product, similar ones are created from a thermoplastic material the becomes pliable and shape-able once it reaches temperatures in excess of 170 degrees or so. Since the most effective way to reach a consistent temperature across the entire surface is to boil it, this is the technique that is widely used.

Perhaps one of the best features that this product offers is a breathing hole. Only a small number of devices are designed with this important feature that is a must for anyone who is not able to breathe through their nose.

Price tag under magnifying glass The Snore Eliminator cost $37.00 and is currently being sold with free shipping. If you are in search of a better value, pick up the two pack for $47, which also ships for free. This is only $23.50 per device shipped to your doorstep.

Comments from actual reviewers

Thumbs up or thumbs down The Snore Eliminator is made using a simple design that is effective and affordable. Most who have tried it can agree that it stops snoring exactly as indicated by their sales pitch. The manufacturer claims a 93% rate of effectiveness. This seems to coincide with the reviews that are appearing on the internet.

There, however, some common side effects that this snoring device share with others. The most notable side effect is a sore mouth after using the product. Unfortunately, any time you introduce something new to your body it typically reacts in a negative fashion. Luckily, this symptom typically clears up after just a few days. In addition, you may have a difficult time keeping the Snore Eliminator in your mouth at night. If this is the case, try to remold it for a better fit.

Here is some feedback from customers who actually purchased the Snore Eliminator. (Source Amazon.com)

“Best thing on the market, my wife was at her wits end until i found this product. I was skeptical at first but right off the bat, it assisted with my sleep habits. My wife couldn’t be happier.” – Robby Rocks

“I am not satisfied. it has decreased the volume, but my husband snores as before. We tried to modify the shape many times, but the result is the same. I would not recommend to spend money on this product.” – Shilde

“Does it work? Yes! There are still lingering minor problems…one tends to drool a bit and a tiny snore here and there. However, the awful rattling that can be quite distressing is basically gone.” – Lesley Zychla 

Should I buy the Snore Eliminator?

illustration of person pondering on top of question markIts a fact – this particular oral appliance delivers as promised. It was created by an oral surgeon and comes with a 100% money back guarantee. Overall, everything seems to check out okay.

The molding process is similar to several others and can be completed at home in less than 10 minutes. This makes it desirable if you are searching for something that can be used immediately as soon as you receive it in the mail.

Although relatively new to the market, the Snore Eliminator has already made a name for itself as an effective solution that prevents snoring. Many people have left positive feedback in reference to this product while few say it does not work.

The breather hole is a plus and is often left out by most manufacturers who offer a similar product. Their air hole ensures that you are able to breathe, even if your nose is stuffy. While this can be a positive feature, some find that it causes the back of your throat to dry out.

Perhaps the Snore Eliminators best feature is the price. When purchased individually, your cost is going to be similar to many others that are available. However, when you purchase the 2 pack for only $10 more, the cost drops to just under $24 per unit which means that it costs much less than many of its competitors.

While the Snore Eliminator may work and is inexpensive, I would not consider this a long-term solution for anyone who is interested in treating their snoring every night. A more appealing product is the Zquiet which does not have to be fitted and is much more compact in comparison to the Snore Eliminator. You can read my complete review to see why it’s better than most boil and bite mouthpieces. I’ve used the Zquiet and it is just as effective as the snore eliminator yet much thinner and compact. It allows you to breathe through your mouth, speak or even have a liquid refreshment before going to sleep.

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.
