Howdy all,

DW got fitted for an anti-snore dental appliance that cost over $1.5K. It included an upper and lower fitted bite guards with an adjuster. We called it the rhino tooth. She's had two, the first one having only lasted about 14 months, the second she had had for two years before a tooth broke. DW broke an incisor root canal last year, and with the subsequent implant-based repair, the old snore guard no longer fits. We're told that 2 years is about the maximum lifetime before it breaks, so we didn't lose much in that dimension when her tooth broke.

There was no snoring for about 9 months after the treatment, perhaps because her mouth muscles had been trained into not snoring, but now it's back. We've got significant travel coming up, so sleeping in separate bedrooms won't be an option.

Options: Pricey: the old system.

Less pricey but maybe less effective: the patented product at http://www.snoreguard.com/.

CPAP: DW objects to transporting it, and to what she understands is the noise from observing a friend's demonstration. Also, it would require a new prescription. It might last longer than the dental appliance.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Kat
