Mouthpiece

The SnoreLogic Snoring Mouthpiece targets the main cause of snoring. Its adjustable design brings the lower jaw forward to create free space behind your tongue and ensure your airway stays open at night. This clears the obstructed upper airway, allowing air to flow through easily, providing effective relief from snoring.

The SnoreLogic Snoring Mouthpiece is a boil-and-bite mouthpiece that can be molded at home in under 5 minutes. The mouthpiece has been designed to be as user-friendly as possible, and the box contains a detailed instruction booklet with pictures to illustrate each stage of the molding process. A video can also be found here.

If you don’t mold your SnoreLogic Snoring Mouthpiece correctly, or it becomes loose over time, it’s possible to re-mold it. There’s no maximum number of times the mouthpiece can be re-molded. However, as it’s made of plastic, it may start to lose its integrity after the 3rd or 4th mold. This would be the time to consider purchasing a new one.

The SnoreLogic Snoring Mouthpiece is easily adjusted in small increments by using your fingers to turn the plastic screws. This will allow you to find just the right level of advancement.

We would advise against using the SnoreLogic Snoring Mouthpiece if you suffer from a serious respiratory condition such as asthma or emphysema.

This depends on how many missing teeth you have, and which ones they are. A few missing molars at the back of your mouth should be okay, but if you have several front teeth missing you may have problems using the mouthpiece. If you have crowns or a bridge, we don’t recommend wearing a snoring mouthpiece without first consulting your dentist. This is especially true if you have crowns or a bridge on your front teeth, as these are the teeth that have the most pressure placed on them. For those who wear dentures, the SnoreLogic Snoring Mouthpiece can be used if your dentures are kept in the mouth while sleeping. The mouthpiece cannot be used if you have full dentures and these are removed while sleeping. If you wear partial dentures and they are removed at night, then you would need the majority of your front teeth and several of your rear teeth to be able to use the mouthpiece. Please consult your dentist or orthodontist if you are unsure about whether the SnoreLogic Snoring Mouthpiece is suitable for you.

Occasionally, people experience some discomfort when they first use a mandibular advancement device like the SnoreLogic Snoring Mouthpiece. We recommend that you persevere with using the mouthpiece for at least a week before deciding to return it, as it sometimes takes this long for your jaw to become accustomed to using the device. If you are wondering whether the side effects you are experiencing are normal, please refer to the product instruction booklet or contact us. If you purchased your SnoreLogic Snoring Mouthpiece less than 30 days ago and have used it for 7 nights, but are still not entirely satisfied, contact us and we will happily refund your purchase.

The SnoreLogic Snoring Mouthpiece is FDA cleared for the treatment of snoring. If you suspect that you have sleep apnea, consult your doctor as soon as possible.

If the SnoreLogic Snoring Mouthpiece doesn’t work for you within 30 nights, we’ll give you a full refund!

Snoring app

SnoreLogic can help you take control of your sleep health. It analyzes how loudly and frequently you snore, and provides useful reports and suggestions to help you get a better night’s sleep.

While other apps simply track noise, the SnoreLogic algorithm is trained to recognize the unique acoustic characteristics of snoring, giving you more accurate reports.

Yes, SnoreLogic is 100% free to use and contains no ads or in-app purchases.

The Breathing Disruption Index (BDI) tracks how often you stop breathing or struggle to breathe in the night. The BDI is a good indicator of apneic events (apneas and hypopneas).

SnoreLogic provides valuable info that you can use to solve your snoring problem. Log lifestyle factors that may have impacted your snoring, get suggestions on lifestyle changes to make, and test remedies and snoring-relief products to see how well they work.

Your data is fully anonymous, and the app does not make recordings except for a few examples of snores for you to listen back to.

When you go to bed, place your phone at the bedside, level with your head and at arms’ length. Make sure that the microphone is pointing towards you and that your phone is plugged into a power source (otherwise the battery will drain during the night). Minimise any background noise and turn off any nearby electrical appliances as these can affect the accuracy of the analysis. Start the analysis and leave the app open – the screen will dim automatically so you are not disturbed by the brightness. You can use the delay function if you don’t want the analysis to start straightaway.

The app will generate a snoring report for you. You’ll be able to see when snores occurred, how loud they were, and how much of the night you spent in periods of snoring. You’ll also be able to listen back to recordings of good snore examples from the night.

The main cause of snoring is relaxed muscle tension in the back of the throat, which can lead to a narrowing of the airways and vibrations of relaxed muscle tissue. Another cause of snoring is congestion of the nasal passages which can limit or block airflow through the nose. This can be due to colds, allergies, or a blocked nose, which forces you to breathe through your mouth and can lead to snoring. Lifestyle factors such as drinking alcohol, smoking, and being overweight can all make you more likely to snore.

Yes. You’ll be able to listen to short recordings of good snoring examples from the night.

SoundSleep’s snoring reports will tell you the percentage of the night you spent snoring, how loud your snoring was, and the number of breathing disruptions you experienced while asleep. You’ll also be able to listen back to clips of your snoring. Any factors you logged that may have contributed to your snoring will also be displayed.

SnoreLogic needs to be connected to the internet to complete its analysis. A few megabytes of data will be passed between your phone and the server, so you should connect to WiFi if you don’t want to use your phone data.

The analysis cannot be completed in airplane mode.

No, unfortunately. Apps that capture sound are blocked from starting automatically in order to protect your privacy. But you can start an analysis before bedtime on a timer delay and no sounds will be analysed during the delay period.

Yes. You can choose how many hours you want the app to analyze each night.

You can use any snoring relief product in conjunction with SnoreLogic. However, the app has some features specifically designed for use with the SnoreLogic Snoring Mouthpiece. You can find out more here.

Factors like a blocked nose/cold, drinking alcohol and a heavy meal can all impact your snoring. Noting these factors creates a more accurate report that will help you work out the true cause of your snoring.

Sometimes the app mistakes other sounds for snoring, but if your sleeping environment is quiet then the effect on your overall snoring report should be minimal. The sounds most likely to be mistaken for snores are those with a deep or vibratory tone, like talking, coughing or rumbling road noise. The low frequency hum of electrical appliances, which may not be audible to the human ear, can also interfere with the analysis, so please ensure any nearby appliances are turned off. Currently the app cannot distinguish between multiple snorers, so the snoring of a bed partner will also be reported in the analysis.

Loud snoring is often a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). However, loud snoring doesn’t mean that you definitely have OSA – and some OSA sufferers don’t report loud snoring as a symptom of their condition. If you suspect you might have OSA, you should visit your doctor as soon as possible. They’ll be able to recommend the best treatment option for you. If snoring is affecting your sleep, or your mental or physical health, you should take steps to deal with it.

SnoreLogic’s machine-learning algorithm makes it one of the most accurate sleep apps you can use to monitor your snoring. It has been trained on many hours of carefully labelled snore recordings made in a variety of bedroom environments by both men and women. However some background noises are known to interfere with the analysis, especially rumbling road noise, coughing and speech which have similar acoustic features. For the best results, SnoreLogic should therefore be used in a quiet sleeping environment.

The SnoreLogic app helps SnoreLogic Snoring Mouthpiece users keep track of their sleep health on a nightly basis. The app allows you to track how well your mouthpiece is working for you.

You can use SnoreLogic with any type of snoring relief product, or with no product at all. But, there are also some special features to help with the use of the SnoreLogic Snoring Mouthpiece in particular.

The reports show how loudly and often you snored, along with the proportion of the night you spent in periods of snoring.

SnoreLogic generates one report for every analysis you make. You can collect as many reports as you’d like.

If you think you might have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), SnoreLogic has useful features to help you assess your OSA risk. These include a STOP-BANG score, plus a marker on the Epworth Sleepiness Scale. The Breathing Disruption Index (BDI) tracks the number of events where you may have stopped breathing or struggled to breathe in the night. If you are concerned you may have sleep apnea you should see your doctor for a professional medical assessment.

Obstructive sleep apnea can be difficult to diagnose. Some people suffer from OSA and never even suspect that they have the condition. One main symptom of OSA is loud snoring, but not everybody who snores has OSA. You may be suffering from OSA if you snore and stop breathing in your sleep, or wake up tired (even after 8 hours sleep). When you experience an episode of apnea during sleep, you will usually wake up with a loud snore or snort.

No. The app does not make recordings except for a few good examples of snores for you to listen to. SnoreLogic’s algorithm processes the audio signal within the app on the phone, analysing how much snoring it contains. No audio recordings are retained or transferred to a server, except those few snoring examples (which you can delete if you want to by contacting support@snorelogic.com).

No identifiable information is collected except your email address (which is excluded from any data analysis tasks conducted by PFLH). Your data is therefore kept anonymous. No audio recordings are stored on the server, except a few snippets of snores for you to listen to.

SnoreLogic is compatible with any device running iOS 12 or greater, or Android 7 or greater.

Most phone cases don’t block the microphone, so your snoring reports should still be accurate. However, chunkier cases can sometimes be an obstruction, so you should make sure your microphone is fully uncovered before you start an analysis.

Ideally, yes. If you run out of battery during the night, you’ll lose your analysis.

No, but currently the algorithm will not differentiate between the snores of two people sleeping in the same room, so it may be difficult to understand who snored more or less on a particular night.

Try to make your sleeping environment as quiet as possible because the app can mistake some sounds, like speech and road noise, for snoring. The low frequency hum of electrical appliances, which may not be audible to the human ear, can also interfere with the analysis, so please ensure any nearby appliances are turned off.

Reduce the risk of failure by making sure your phone is plugged in to charge before you go to sleep. Keep the app open with your phone unlocked (don’t press the phone’s Sleep/Wake button before going to sleep). You might want to activate your phone’s “do not disturb” mode to prevent audio disturbance from notifications or calls. Disconnect from any audio devices like headphones or hearing aids.
