  1. PLEASE NOTE: The term over-the-counter anti-snoring devices on this website refers to the commonly available mouth devices available through a variety of media resources, such as television, radio and internet by the consumer without a “direct prescription” from your personal physician.

    Professional oral appliance therapy devices refer to those mouth devices made by dentists after a medical evaluation by a physician of one’s snoring. Due to potential side effects of any mouth devices, dental guidance is strongly recommended. Due to the medical nature of snoring, physician evaluation is strongly recommended.
