The Good Morning Snore Solution (GMSS) has been on the market since 2008 and is a mouthpiece that kind of resembles a baby’s pacifier. It’s designed to help alleviate snoring that’s caused by tongue obstruction. For tongue-based snorers, the tongue drops to the back of their throat during sleep, partially blocking the airway and causing the vibrations that create sound. This is one of the most common causes of snoring.
How can you know if tongue obstruction is what’s making you snore? You can do a quick test to see if this device will help you. First, make a snoring sound. Then, stick out your tongue and again, try to make a snoring sound. If the noise you make is reduced or eliminated when your tongue is sticking out, it’s a pretty safe bet that your tongue’s position is what’s causing you to snore.
The GMSS has been clinically proven to work and it’s been cleared by the FDA, Health Canada, EEA and ARTG. It’s also BPA free.
How Does the Good Morning Snore Solution Mouthpiece Work?
This mouthpiece works by holding the tongue forward during sleep so that it doesn’t fall back and obstruct the airway.
This device creates a gentle suction effect on the tongue to keep it in place at night, resulting in a quiet night’s sleep.
To use this mouthpiece:
- Place the GMSS in your mouth between your lips and front teeth. It can be worn with or without dentures.
- Pinch the tip of the mouthpiece with your finger and thumb while breathing in to draw the air out of the tip.
- Push the tip of your tongue into the end of the mouthpiece and then let go of the mouthpiece.
This will have created a seal to gently hold the mouthpiece and your tongue in place. Now all you have to do is relax and go to sleep. It might take a few tries before you’re able to keep the mouthpiece in for a full night.
To clean the Good Morning Snore Solution, soak it in cold water and a denture cleaning tablet or denture cleaning solution. It’s not recommended to clean this mouthpiece with a toothbrush as it may be too abrasive. It comes in one size, does not need to be custom fitted before use and has a 30-day guarantee.

About the Company
The Good Morning Snore Solution is brought to us by a Canadian company called MPowRx. The GMSS was invented by a dentist and sleep researcher in Calgary for the purpose of treating sleep apnea and snoring in a way that was convenient and economical. Custom mouthpieces cost thousands of dollars and many people can’t or don’t want to use a CPAP machine. This mouthpiece was developed to offer a solution that would complement available treatment options.
MPowRx has an A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau, so you can be confident that you’ll receive good customer service and a quality product.
Should You Buy a GMSS Mouthpiece?
If you suffer from tongue-based snoring, the GMSS seems like a sensible choice. It’s not as bulky as the mouthpieces that look like sports mouth guards that fit over the teeth. You also don’t have to deal with potential jaw soreness that those types of devices may cause. This is also one of the few mouthpiece options for snorers who wear full dentures. The price is higher than some other mouthpieces available, but you know you are paying for a device that’s been clinically demonstrated to work and that has FDA clearance as well as clearance by other international authorities for safe and effective use as an anti-snoring device. If you’ve done the tongue test, and you can’t make a snoring sound when your tongue is sticking out, this seems like a pretty safe bet as long as you are willing to take the time to get through an adjustment period the first few nights you wear the GMSS.
