RE: snorebgone
The product is a DIY mouthpiece that may advance the jaw and maintain the airway in some people. I would say the device will prevent mouth breathing and reduce snoring related to that and might provide some mild relief of positional occlusion of the airway related to the jaw moving back. A professionally fitted device can reduce obstructive apnea has been shown in studies to reduce apnea, but not to th degree of CPAP. Its main advantage is for individuals that cannot or will not use CPAP, and the efficacy of a DIY device may not be comparable to a dentist fitted MAD (mandibular advancement device). https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3899326/

It would not work for me, and I wouldn't recommend it as an alternative to CPAP to anyone with moderate to severe obstructive apnea. A major drawback is a lack of being able to measure it's success, other than a potential reduction of rib bruising from your wife poking you to stop snoring.

Thanks all for the info.  As usual, if it looks too good to be true, it usually is.

The advantage of CPAP is that instead of a big ugly plastic thing shoved into my mouth, the big ugly plastic thing sits on my face and what goes into my mouth is pressurized air. I know which I prefer.
