can I get EndSnor™?
EndSnor™ is available through your personal dentist.
This is because each EndSnor™ requires an individual
fitting to the patient's mouth. This fitting requires the
professional capability of a dentist to insure that the lab-developed
EndSnor™ fits perfectly patient to patient. Endsnor™
is indicated for persons 18 years or older who wish to reduce
the incidence of snoring and/or mild to moderate obstructive
How long does it take to receive my EndSnor™ device?
Between 8 and 10 working days. This time allows for shipping
of patient's mouth mold to the lab for customized fabrication
and for the return of the finished EndSnor™ product
to your dentist.
3. Is the EndSnor™
covered by insurance?
Yes, in many instances. Dental offices have had some companies
cover them 100%. It is usually the medical insurance, they
will require a sleep study diagnosis which we always recommend.
4. Does the appliance
require a lot of adjustment after I receive it?
No. 90% of patients have their snoring and mild to moderate
obstructive sleep apnea reduced with the lowest setting and
never have to have it adjusted. The other 10% will need to
be increased once or twice and usually never again.
5. Is EndSnor™
comfortable to wear?
There is about a week adjustment period as is common with
all oral dental appliances. When you wake up in the morning
you will be just biting on your front teeth. Within 15-20
minutes the muscles will go back to normal biting positions.
Endsnor is the ultimate solution for snoring, for comfort,
durability and effectiveness.
6. Will my bite
or teeth change?
We have had a few patients where their contacts between the
back teeth can open slightly. A small price to pay for the
benefit you receive. If appliance is left out a few days,
the contacts close. Potential long term side effects for some
patients include permanent changes in bite and tooth movement.
7. I'm concerned
about TMJ. Will this aggravate or cause TMJ?
The appliance moves your jaw open and forward which actually
creates more room in the joint and actually causes many clicking
TMJ problems to disappear. However, in rare incidences some
patients may experience TMJ dysfunction.
8. As a patient,
can I order EndSnor™ directly from you?
No. You must go to your dentist, refer him or her to our website,
ENDSNOR.COM. He takes precise impressions, delivers and fits
the EndSnor™ to you. You pay your dentist and their
office will submit to your insurance company.
9. What does
The cost to the patient will range from $900 to $1,300 depending
on your dentist's fees.
10. Why is the
EndSnor™ so expensive?
This is a very sophisticated, adjustable, and comfortable
orthodontic mouthpiece which truly works. Quite likely, there
will be two or three visits to your dentist as well as a substantial
construction laboratory fee to the dentist. As perspective,
EndSnor™ is considerably less expensive than the alternatives,
such as, surgery, where costs will run in excess of $5,000
or CPAP which is very uncomfortable and the costs are more
