How does the Snoreeze LabFit Oral Device work?
The Snoreeze LabFit is a premium, bespoke oral device developed for the treatment of loud snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea. It works by holding your jaw forward during sleep. This helps to keep your airway open, stopping it from collapsing during the night and helping you to breathe easily. Custom-fit oral devices are a professional treatment option used by dentists, offering a more discreet and slimmer fit than regular mouthpieces.
The LabFit is created from your unique dental impressions and designed to fit your mouth perfectly. As well as offering superior comfort and retention, the LabFit can be easily adjusted to find the perfect treatment setting. This personal tailoring makes it easy to use every single night, which is great news for snorers: wearing an oral device consistently is where you’ll see positive long-term results.
- Our first personalised oral device, offering a more comfortable fit
- Easily adjustable so you can find the perfect setting to treat snoring or mild-to-moderate sleep apnoea
- Slim, discreet design

If you are worried that you may be suffering from sleep apnoea, we recommend that you visit your doctor. We always recommend consulting your dentist if you have had 4 or more adult teeth removed, or have any dental concerns or issues about using this oral device.
If you have crowns, dentures, or a bridge, we don’t recommend purchasing or wearing a LabFit without first consulting your dentist.
If you experience severe pain in your jaw, teeth, or gums that does not subside after discontinuing use of the LabFit Oral Device, we recommend that you visit your dentist or doctor.
Discontinue use immediately if:
- You experience severe pain in your jaw, teeth or gums
- Your snoring becomes worse
- You have difficulty breathing while using the LabFit Oral Device
We do not recommend the LabFit Oral Device if:
- You have a severe respiratory disorder, such as asthma or emphysema
- You are suffering from central sleep apnoea
- You have been diagnosed with a joint disorder related to the jaw
- You have severe jaw pain, loose teeth, or advanced periodontal disease
- You have full or partial dentures that are removed at night, leaving you with few teeth
- You wear fixed braces or a retainer at night
- You have a severe overbite (also known as an ‘overjet’, where you upper teeth sit very far in front of your lower teeth)
- You are under 18 years old
If any of the above apply to you, the LabFit Oral Device will not be suitable for you.
Use of the LabFit Oral Device may cause:
- Tooth movement or changes to your teeth and jaw which alter your bite and/or dental occlusion over longer-term use
- Dental sensitivity after removing the LabFit Oral Device
- Gingival (gum) or dental soreness
- Pain or soreness of the jaw
- Excessive salivation (which should stop once you get used to wearing the LabFit Oral Device)

How does the Snoreeze LabFit Oral Device work?
The LabFit Oral Device is a custom-fit mouthpiece that holds your jaw in the correct position while you sleep. This helps to increase your airway opening, improving the airflow into your lungs. The LabFit is made from your unique dental impressions.
Can I use the Snoreeze LabFit Oral Device if I have missing teeth/crowns/a bridge/dentures?
This depends on how many missing teeth you have, and which ones they are. A few missing molars at the back of your mouth should be okay, but if you have several front teeth missing you may have problems using the LabFit. If you have crowns or a bridge, we don’t recommend purchasing or wearing a LabFit without first consulting your dentist. This is especially true if you have crowns or a bridge on your front teeth, as these are the teeth that have the most pressure placed on them. For those who wear dentures, the LabFit can be used if your dentures are kept in the mouth while sleeping. The LabFit cannot be used if you have full dentures and these are removed while sleeping. If you wear partial dentures and they are removed at night, then you would need the majority of your front teeth and several of your rear teeth to be able to use the LabFit. Please consult your dentist or orthodontist if you are unsure about whether the Snoreeze LabFit Oral Device is suitable for you.
How do I make a dental impression?
As soon as you place your order, we’ll send out a dental impression kit so you can get started straightaway. The kit will include trays for your top and bottom teeth, and putty for you to make a mould of your mouth. Watch our step-by-step video here to learn how to make your dental impressions.
How do I adjust the Snoreeze LabFit Oral Device?
The Snoreeze LabFit Oral Device is fully adjustable. The device has easy-to-turn screws that allow you to move the bottom tray a little at a time. This will help you find the perfect setting to treat your snoring or sleep apnoea. For step-by-step video instructions on how to adjust your LabFit device, click here.
How do I clean the Snoreeze LabFit Oral Device?
Place your LabFit under running lukewarm water, and clean it with a soft denture brush each morning (a coarse brush could damage the inner layer of the device). Make sure that the device has no visible particles on it (like bits of food), and rinse it thoroughly under the water again. Once the LabFit is clean, dry the device with a tissue or a towel and place it back in its storage box.
How long does the Snoreeze LabFit last?
You can expect your device to last for around 6 months if you clean it and look after it well. Teeth-grinding (also known as bruxism) can wear out a device more quickly, but the LabFit should help with your symptoms. You should replace your oral device when:
- There are signs of damage, cracks or flaws.
- There’s a loss of retention – the device no longer fits snugly around your teeth.
Can I use the Snoreeze LabFit Oral Device if you have asthma?
We would advise against using the Snoreeze LabFit Oral Device if you suffer from a serious respiratory condition such as asthma or emphysema.
Can I use the Snoreeze LabFit Oral Device instead of my CPAP machine?
Oral devices have been shown to be an effective treatment for mild-to-moderate sleep apnoea. If you have been prescribed CPAP treatment by your doctor, we don’t advise stopping treatment without first discussing things with them. If you feel you have sleep apnoea, you should speak to a doctor and ask if they think the Snoreeze LabFit Oral Device would be suitable for you.
