The Basics of Snoring
Snoring is “the act of respiring through the open mouth so that the currents of inspired and expired air cause a vibration of the uvula and soft palate, thus giving rise to a sound more or less harsh.” Snoring is a common condition that can affect anyone, although it may be more frequent in men and people carrying extra weight; it also has a tendency to worsen as you age.
Snoring can occur when the flow of air through the mouth and nose is obstructed. Air flow can be obstructed by a combination of factors such as:
- Obstructed nasal airways due to allergies, sinus infection, and deviated septum;
- Poor muscle tone in the throat and tongue, which allows them to collapse and fall back into the airway – a deep sleep, alcohol, sleeping pills and normal aging can all cause relaxation of these muscles;
- Bulky throat tissue from being overweight or having large tonsils and can cause airflow obstruction and cause snoring.
- A long soft palate or uvula can narrow the opening from the nose to the throat - when these structures vibrate and bump against one another the airway becomes obstructed, causing snoring.
Occasional snoring is usually not very serious – it is mostly a nuisance for your bed partner. However, if you are a habitual snorer, you not only can impair the sleep patterns of those around you but your own, and that can lead to serious health problems.
Depending on the cause of your snoring, you can try to adjust your sleep position, reduce excess weight and decrease alcohol consumption; alternatively you may use an oral appliance in the form of mandibular repositioning devices, soft palate life devices and tongue retention or stabilization devices. Good Morning Snore Solution falls into the latter group as a tongue retention or stabilization device.
Note that during sleep, the tongue relaxes and blocks the oral airway. Thus, one way to treat snoring is to hold the tongue in a forward position, which helps by placing tension on the tongue to aid in the reduction of snoring as the Good Morning Snore Solution does.
When it comes to affordable stop snoring devices, people get two options: the mandibular advancement device and the tongue stabilizing device. Although these two options are both mouthpieces, they function quite differently
The mandibular advancement device is worn like a denture and stops snoring by moving the lower jaw forward to expand the air passage. Mandibular advancement can be very uncomfortable and lead to permanent changes to teeth and bite over time, requiring orthodontic treatment to correct.
Meanwhile the simplified tongue stabilization strategy of the Good Morning Snore Solution mouthpiece works by gently moving the tongue forward which helps by placing tension on the tongue to aid in the reduction of snoring. This method can be more effective and more comfortable for most users, have fewer potential side effects, and is significantly more affordable than typical methods.
About Good Morning Snore Solution
Respected Calgary dentist and sleep researcher Dr. Leslie Dort (MSc, DDS, Dip ABDSM) is the original developer of the Good Morning Snore Solution mouthpiece. As part of her clinical practice and research at the University of Calgary, Dr. Dort saw potential for an alternative to the complex, uncomfortable and often expensive snoring solutions on the market. Looking at the mechanics of snoring holistically, she discovered an ingeniously simple but effective anti-snoring strategy — tongue stabilization – which is the central idea behind the Good Morning Snore Solution. Dr. Dort’s original mouthpiece prototypes were put through clinical safety and performance trials, and published in the peer review medical journal providing independent third party validation of the strength of the design. MPowrx, the company behind Good Morning Snore Solution has conducted focus groups with doctors and gathered data from users over many years to help refine the design and materials used in the manufacture of the mouthpiece, today.
Good Morning Snore Solution mouthpiece is a simple one-piece, non-custom oral appliance. The mouthpiece can be comfortably retained within the mouth while sleeping. The device has a flange that fits between the lips and teeth and a bulb with an aperture (opening) that holds the tongue. Once the bulb is squeezed to reduce the air volume, a vacuum is formed which keeps the tongue comfortably retained within the bulb. It is this forward retention of the tongue that helps keep the upper airways open, which in turn reduces snoring.
Yes, the FDA has cleared the Good Morning Snore for Over-The-Counter (OTC) Use, as an aid in the reduction of snoring.
In order to receive FDA Clearance, a product must be proven effective and must also undergo very strict safety testing. There are many anti-snoring devices sold online that are not cleared by the FDA, and there is no way to ensure that those products are effective or safe for consumers, or legal for sale.
The Good Morning Snore Solution Mouthpiece is made of a plastic resin commonly used in the fabrication of oral appliances. This resin has undergone ISO-certified medical device testing to confirm the material is safe for its intended use and has been cleared by the FDA for this purpose; the material is free of BPA and BHA. We cannot disclose the exact composition of our product as it is proprietary in nature so we hope that this explanation helps.
The Good Morning Snore Solution is produced in a world class ISO 9001 and 13485 certified facility in the Midwestern United States. All materials are sourced in the United States and the product is manufactured in accordance with the highest quality standards.

USING THE GOOD MORNING SNORE SOLUTION
User Instructional Video
When using the MPowRx™ Snoring Solution (Good Morning Snore Solution®) for the first time clean it thoroughly (See Cleaning and Care )
- Just before falling asleep, place the flange of the appliance between lips and front teeth.
- Squeeze bulb with thumb and first finger while sucking the air out of the bulb
- Insert the tip of the tongue into the end of the bulb while releasing your thumb and finger.
- Relax your tongue.
To remove the appliance, gently squeeze the bulb and remove tongue from the bulb.
It is recommended that you practice good oral hygiene every day and consider the following:
- some people may experience excessive salivation and tender oral mucosa and tongue during initial use. To minimize this effect, wear the appliance for 1-2 hours for the first 2-3 days while awake. This will help to acclimate your mouth to wearing the Good Morning Snore Solution mouthpiece.
- If you are bothered by wearing the Good Morning Snore Solution mouthpiece and wake up during the night, remove the appliance from your mouth and resume sleeping. With each night, you should be able to sleep longer with the device.
- If suction seems too low or high, modify the amount of air in the bulb during the placement of the tongue.
When using the Good Morning Snore Solution properly, your tongue will be positioned inside the bulb and the flange will ‘sit’ in front of your teeth/gums and behind your lips, and your tongue will protrude slightly past your lips (See photo above). This positioning serves to secure the device in place and the mouthpiece will suction the end of the tongue, pulling it forward to help clear the air passages. Your upper and lower front teeth should rest gently on the tongue itself, adding to the stabilization of your tongue in this forward position.
Every person is different, so the mouthpiece can have some variation for each user. Some may find that the device suctions too strongly and makes their tongue sore at first, while others might feel the device does not have enough suction to keep their tongue in the proper position all night. If suction seems too high, most will find adding a bit more air to the bulb during placement of the tongue to be more comfortable. If suction seems too low, we suggest adding a small dab of olive oil in the bulb to create a better seal. With a bit of adjustments, and time for the body to become used to the mouthpiece, most users reach what we call the “Goldilocks Zone” where everything is just right, and the Good Morning Snore Solution is both effective and comfortable enough for use all night, every night.
Typically, the adjustment period could take up to 4 weeks of consistent use. It is perfectly normal for your tongue, gums and mouth to feel moderately sore at first. This discomfort is much like getting used to braces or a retainer for the first time. However, it is not normal to experience severe, sharp, or ongoing pain. If you experience these problems discontinue use immediately and contact your health care professional.
CLEANING AND CARE
Let your mouthpiece soak in a mixture of cold water and a certified cleaning solution for 10 minutes. After soaking, rinse with cold water and allow the mouthpiece to air dry before use.
Only use cold water and a certified cleaning solution – see “what is a certified cleaning solution”.
- Hot water
- Harsh cleaners
- Abrasive brushes or cleaning pads
Do not heat, use harsh cleaners, or cut or trim your mouthpiece as this could make it unsafe for use and compromise its effectiveness.
Store the device at 15-30°C (59-86°F), in a dry place.
You may wish to use the Good Morning Snore Solution carrying case to store and travel with your device.
A certified cleaning solution includes anything approved for cleaning dentures, retainers or sports mouth guards. These products can be purchased at your local pharmacy, grocery store, and at most convenience stores. As an alternative, you can also use a mixture of toothpaste and cold water. With most cleaning products, the device should soak for at least ten minutes. Always use cold water. After soaking, rinse with cold water and allow the mouthpiece to air dry before use. Once dry, your Good Morning Snore Solution mouthpiece is clean and ready for your next sleep.
On average, the lifespan of the Good Morning Snore Solution mouthpiece is one year. This lifespan may vary, and depends on personal use and care for the device. You may wish to replace it earlier if you see signs of wear and tear or if you notice its effectiveness has diminished over time.
When you first start to use the Good Morning Snore Solution, you may have a period of adjustment to be able to get used to sleeping with the device – during this period, the device may fall out of your mouth during sleep. If this occurs, we recommend you practice wearing the device for a short periods (10-15 minutes) of time during the ‘awake’ hours. This way you can practice breathing and swallowing with the device, and adjusting the suction to find the right suction. Repeat this until you feel confident that you could retain the device in your mouth while you sleep. The adjustment period varies from person to person – some people get used to wearing the device right away and the device stays in place all night, while others may require up to 4 weeks to get completely comfortable using the device.
