When you or your sleep partner is losing sleep because of snoring, it can not only affect your health but your relationship as well. When seeking a solution, not everything works for every individual and, since there are a number of anti-snoring devices available, choosing the right one can be a challenge.
One popular option among snorers has been the Snore-B-Gone anti-snoring mouthpiece. Featured in an unbiased, informational news piece that compared the device with two other products, the Snore-B-Gone was shown to be an effective solution for snoring and gained in popularity.
What Is Snore-B-Gone?
The Snore-B-Gone anti-snoring device is a BPA- and latex-free, lightweight plastic mouthpiece, similar to other anti-snoring mouthpieces.
Users use a boil-and-bite method to customize the fit of the mouthpiece which extends the jaw to help prevent snoring.
Does Snore-B-Gone Work?
As with any anti-snoring device, what works for some, may not work for others. While the snorer in the news piece found Snore-B-Gone to help with his snoring, further research indicates this device is not what it seems.
Confusion around the design of the product has resulted in a large number of negative reviews from customers who thought the device was able to be adjusted in increments. In fact, the Snore-B-Gone does not come with any adjustment options.
The Better Business Bureau gives the company - Minnesota-based Snore-B-Gone - a disappointing rating of D+ and reports three separate complaints from customers, indicating issues with product returns and criticizing the device as “nothing more than a sports mouth guard.”
The company appears to be out of business now and the websites - snore-b-gone.com as well as snore-b-gone.onlined.org - are not active.
Despite Snore-B-Gone’s apparent popularity, it appears the company is now unavailable and the device has become obsolete for purchase.
For individuals with sleep apnea or other sleep disorders such as insomnia, anti-snoring mouthpieces can be a life-changing purchase. However, before trying a new product, it is critical to research online reviews and get information about the company you are purchasing from, to avoid scams and knock-off products that do not work.
