The Good Morning Snore Solution is quite different from all the other anti-snoring mouthpiece devices out on the market. It actually looks a little silly, in my opinion – almost like a reverse soother.
But then, if you know how well babies sleep with a soother, you’re willing to try anything to stop your snoring!
So, is big question is, does it work? … YES … and maybe. I’ll explain in a minute. First, though, why the strange design?

What is the Good Morning Snore Solution Mouthpiece?
Most other mouthpieces work by pushing your jaw forward to open your airways. The one problem with these is that they don’t always prevent your tongue from collapsing, causing you to snore anyway.
The Good Morning Snore Solution by MPowRX works differently in that it anchors your tongue as well, pulling it forward so it doesn’t constrict your airway. The device itself is thin and flexible, made from a medical-grade BPA-free resin, so it will feel comfortable for most mouth sizes with no custom fitting.
You place the device in your mouth, with the bulb part out. Stick your tongue into the bulb, and squeeze the air out. It almost feels like a suction, and there’s an actual pop as it encloses around the tip of your tongue, keeping it in place before you go to bed.
It’s one of the most recent anti-snoring mouthpieces launched in the US, but it’s been around for some time in the UK and Canada. The product was invented by Dr. Leslie Dort, a dentist and sleep researcher, from Canada. It has gone through clinical tests, including a randomized controlled study, and has been found to be very effective.
In a study conducted in Canada, 32 people with chronic snoring were allowed to use this device in their sleep for one week and the researchers kept track of how often the subjects woke. More than one-third of the subjects woke only half the number of times as compared with other nights when they did not use the device. The researchers also reported that there was an approximate 40 percent decrease in the number of times the subjects snored during the night. A majority of the users expressed their willingness to keep using GMSS regularly.
This study, published in the May 2008 issue of the Journal of Sleep and Breathing indicates that Good Morning Snore Solution is an effective anti-snoring device.
The Good Morning Snore Solution has the approval of Health Canada as a Class I medical device for snoring and mild sleep apnea. The FDA in the United States has cleared it as a prescription device for snoring. It also has the approval of the European Commission as well as the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia.
Is it Right for You?
Many people snore, but not all snore because of the same reason. Considering the credentials of Good Morning Snore Solution, I’d like to say it’s the best solution for anyone who snores, but that would not be the entire truth.
If you snore because of a nasal allergy or sinus infection, GMSS will not help; you need to get rid of the congestion by using a nasal decongestant or using a neti pot to flush out the congestion. If you snore because your jaw hangs open in your sleep, GMSS is not the right device for you – you need an anti-snoring device that works to retain the jaw in position. But if you snore because your tongue falls back and blocks the passage of air through the airways, go ahead and buy Good Morning Snore Solution because it is possibly one of the best devices for your condition.
What’s the Feedback?
Going by what users say, GMSS appears to be an effective and popular anti-snoring device. Most users complain of the discomfort of having the tongue in place all night … some users also experienced numbness in the tongue due. However, once they got used to it after a few nights, the feeling of discomfort diminished.
Dr. Stephan Hrach of Calgary Dental says that patients report they are satisfied with the way GMSS has helped them cope with snoring.
A Word of Caution
Although there may be some initial discomfort until your mouth gets used to having this device, it tends to gradually clear up with time. However, if you have bruxism and are already using some other dental device, speak to your dentist before you use Good Morning Snore Solution.
Also, if you suffer from nasal congestion, you need to treat that before you use this device, because the GMSS blocks your mouth, and this could lead to insufficient oxygen reaching your lungs.
Finally, like most snoring devices, returns can be a hassle, as manufacturers will have to dispose of any used items returned. This means there will likely be disposal and shipping fees. Some customers have had hassles returning the product, though all have received refunds, minus shipping fees. The device is also sold from a Canadian address, so be aware of international shipping.
3 Reasons I Recommend Good Morning Snore Solution
Here’s why I think GMSS is a good option:
- It has been clinically proven to act through actual research study and this means it is a credible device, not an empty boast.
- Feedback about the device is positive. However, everybody is different. If you find it does not work for you, there is nothing to lose – all you need to do is return the device within the specified 30-day limit and you can have your money refunded.
- It has been approved by almost all the major drug regulatory bodies across the world – a difficult feat to achieve unless the product is really effective and safe.
