My husband started snoring and it drove me up the wall, so he purchased one of these stop snoring mouthpiece to help him, and is not like your normal anti-snoring mouthpieces. Unlike most of the mandibular advancement devices you may have seen, this one functions and appears slightly different. Especially when you are discussing what it looks like when you insert it into your mouth. But the end results that this device has given me make up for that. Backed by 5 years of research this non-invasive device will help you stop snoring, however, it is not my first choice I still highly recommend it.

How Does It Work
The majority of MADs work to stop your snoring by holding your jaw in the forward position. This opens up your airways and allows you to breath more soundly at night. This device on the other hand, works in an entirely different way by holding your tongue in place to prevent it from falling in the back of your throat.
On the suction end of the aveoTSD you insert your tongue, while the rest of the device sits between your lips and teeth. It will than hold your tongue forward while you sleep—similarly to how MADs hold your jaw forward.
How To Use It
- When you get your aveoTSD you want to rinse it under hot water for about 15 seconds. This will soften the silicone and make it easier for you to fit it into your mouth.
- Once you have run it under hot water, put the tip of your tongue into the bulb and squeeze the sides to create a suction.
- Some users have found that squeezing the sides in a short pulsating pattern helps to position it onto your tongue easier. So try both methods to see which works best for you.
- Wear the device around the house as much as you can when you first get it to help you get used to the feeling of wearing it.
My Husbands Experience
The aveoTSD is only available through prescription, so I had to obtain one from my physician. With my insurance it cost me only a little over $100 for one. They typically average between $90 and $140 each. Once I got home with mine, I immediately put it on so I could start to get used it. They recommended that I wear it for up to a week around the house to do this.
It took me a couple of evenings to get it right. The first night I found that I drooled a bit more than I have with other devices that I have used. The next night it fell off in the middle in the night. But the third evening I was able to take my time on achieving the proper suction to keep it in place properly. My wife informed me that she had woken up in the middle of the night and found that I was quietly sleeping, which is a rare thing in my household.
