By opening up your airway and allowing you to breathe better, the AirSnore mouthpiece promises to instantly stop your snoring, without any special fitting required by your dentist.
In just minutes, the manufacturer claims you can mold AirSnore to the inside of your mouth, making it easy to achieve custom comfort and easy wearability. Once in place, AirSnore will slightly move your jaw forward and help improve airflow.
Despite these benefits, we’re told AirSnore is a low-cost, one-size-fits-all solution that can help you avoid a heavy-duty breathing apparatus, not to mention painful surgery.
And when combined with AirSnore Drops, a blend of natural oils with “soothing, antiseptic properties,” the company claims you can even get a good night’s sleep when you’re feeling under the weather.
We’ll talk more about this in a moment, but the HighYa team has reviewed many other anti-snoring mouthpieces. Is there anything meaningfully different about AirSnore? Does it really represent the “ultimate anti-snoring solution”?
That’s what you’re here to find out, so let’s dig in and help you find some answers.
What Causes Snoring? Can It Be Cured?
When you sleep, your soft palate (the muscles in the roof of your mouth) relax, along with your tongue and throat. This creates an ideal situation for snoring, which occurs when these soft tissues partially cover your airway and vibrate as air passes over them.
Given this, snoring is generally a side effect of some other condition, and not a specific diagnosis itself.
Many different factors (some individually, some cumulatively) can contribute to this soft tissue blockage, including age (the older your are the more likely you are to snore), lifestyle factors like drinking and smoking, anatomy (e.g. the size and shape of your mouth and throat), nasal problems, some medications, and much more.
The important thing to keep in mind here is that, while all air you inhale ultimate passes the soft tissue at the back of the throat, it can enter the body through either the nose or the mouth. And each of these generally has a different treatment.
Who might AirSnore work best for? Let’s find out.
How Does the AirSnore Mouthpiece Work?
After receiving your AirSnore mouthpiece, you’ll need to place it in hot water for a few minutes, which will soften the material. Then, place it in your mouth, bite down, and wait for it to cool.
Once you remove the mouthpiece, it should be an exact fit. If not, you can repeat the process until it’s perfect.
When it’s time to go to bed, you’ll simply insert your AirSnore mouthpiece, which will move you jaw slightly forward and open up your airway, but without any pain or discomfort. Technically, this is known as a mandibular advancement device.
After a good night’s sleep, the manufacturer recommends soaking your AirSnore device in a mixture of cold water and toothpaste for 10-15 minutes and allowing it to air dry. If you prefer, we’re told you can also use denture cleaning solution.
When not in use, you’ll be able to store you AirSnore mouthpiece in the included protective case.
What about AirSnore Drops? Will they help relieve your snoring as well as the mouthpiece?
Are the Ingredients In AirSnore Drops Effective?
According to the company, AirSnore Drops uses a “special blend” of natural oils that can help you breathe easier and fall asleep much more easily. Simply rub some of the formula on your chest and neck, as well as under your nostrils, before going to bed.
Here’s what we’re told it contains:
- Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil
- Eucalyptus globulus (eucalyptus) leaf oil
- Lavendula angustifolia (lavender) flower oil
- Mentha piperita (peppermint) leaf oil
- Pinus sylvestris (Scots pine) leaf oil
According to WebMD, there is evidence that a eucalyptus mixture can help address some symptoms of bronchitis, but only when taken orally (versus the topical version found in AirSnore Drops).
Similarly, lavender may help ease anxiety, which could certainly help someone fall asleep more easily. However, this only applies to oral use.
Outside of these, authority sites like WebMD indicate there isn’t enough clinical evidence showing that any of AirSnore Drops’ ingredients can meaningfully address your snoring, help you fall asleep faster, or improve your sleep quality.
What about side effects?
Will AirSnore Products Cause Any Side Effects?
As far as anti-snoring mouthpieces in general, one of the most common side effects reported by customers is a sore or stiff jaw after the first few nights of use. In most instances, this seems to clear up once the jaw muscles adapt to their new nighttime position.
Specifically regarding AirSnore’s mouthpiece, the manufacturer recommends speaking with your dentist in advance if you wear dentures.
As far as AirSnore Drops, other than mild redness for especially sensitive skin, the topical application of these ingredients typically causes no ill reactions.
How Much Does AirSnore Cost?
AirSnore’s products are priced as follows:
- AirSnore Mouthpiece: $49.95
- AirSnore Drops: $59.95
- AirSnore Combo (includes one mouthpiece and one bottle of drops): $89.95
Regardless of which option you choose, your order will include free shipping, along with a 60-day money back guarantee, less S&H charges. To request one, customer service can be reached at 646-568-9679, firstname.lastname@example.org, or via their online contact form.
AirSnore vs. the Competition: Can We Learn Anything From Customer Reviews?
Although AirSnore’s URL had been registered since December 2015, there weren’t any online customer reviews for their mouthpiece or drops at the time of our research.
However, we’ve reviewed many other anti-snoring mouthpieces over the years, including popular options like Zyppah Rx (which also includes a crossbar section that holds your tongue in place), ZQuiet, NoZnore, and more.
In general, outside of business-specific practices, the most common complaint about these types of devices is that they don’t fit properly, and/or they feel unnatural enough to affect sleep (at least while customer are getting used to it). A close second is that they didn’t prevent snoring.
While customers didn’t mention anything specifically, some of this could be due to the fact that mandibular advancement mouthpieces like AirSnore work best for mouth snorers; i.e. those who typically breathe through their mouth when sleeping.
However, if you tend to breathe (and snore) through your nose while you sleep, other anti-snoring products might deliver better results. These include nasal devices like Mute and Breathe Active, chinstraps like BeQuiet and Z Band, alternative therapies like acupressure with Sleep Well No More Snore Ring, and even high-technology solutions like Nora.

Bottom Line: Will AirSnore Help You Breathe Properly & Sleep Better?
While the design of AirSnore’s mouthpiece is similar to many of the other options we just discussed, perhaps its biggest differentiating factor is that it’s priced at $50. This is in sharp contrast to Zyppah and NoSnore’s $90, while ZQuiet splits the difference at $70.
Searching elsewhere online for “anti-snoring mouthpiece” and “mandibular advancement,” you can find some options as low as $10. Some of these are even available at national big box stores, which might save you return S&H charges if you’re dissatisfied with your purchase.
Should you try AirSnore? Ultimately, we’ll leave this decision up to you.
In our opinion though, while AirSnore is meaningfully less expensive than some popular anti-snoring mouthpieces, you can probably hop in your car and find something similar for much less locally. On top of this, it’s not always clear exactly what you’ll gain for the extra cash.
On the other hand, it’s positive that the company offers a 60-day refund policy if you’re dissatisfied. Given this, you might not be putting much more of your money on the line than return S&H.
Did AirSnore improve—or even stop—your snoring? Was it comfortable? If not, how was the refund policy? We want the details in your review below!
I was not able to fit the mouthpiece comfortably. There was no problem when I asked to return it, until I went to the post office and it was going to cost $24 to return it to the United Kingdom. So now I need to decide if I want to spend $24 to possibly get my $40 back. I was told that somewhere in the fine print it explains this. I just wanted others to be aware.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
