Does PureSleep Work? We Have the Truth

by Denise Wagner on January 23, 2013


Hi there! If you’re searching for PureSleep reviews to determine if it could be a potential solution for you, your partner in bed, or perhaps a member of your family who is suffering from snoring, then you’ve come to the right page. Here you’re bound to discover the truth about this product and whether or not it should be your first choice for non-surgical treatment of snoring. 

What is PureSleep?

PureSleep is a mouthpiece designed to be worn when you sleep for the purpose of reducing snoring. The device was co-invented by a dentist and an Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist who was a snorer as well. It is a product made in the USA and is supposedly safe – made of high quality safety-tested, FDA cleared materials. Based on their website, the product has been used in clinical practice for more than 15 years now to treat snoring.

How Does It Work?

Purse Sleep apparently uses a technique referred to as mandibular repositioning where it gently holds your lower jaw forward to open the airway and eliminate the vibrations coming from the walls of the throat when the airway is obstructed. This technique has been prescribed by dentists and physicians for more than a decade to patients who have snoring problems.

The device is made of hard plastic on the outside and a soft one on the inside for a combination of structural rigidity and comfort. PureSleep has upper and lower pieces that you can connect in three settings depending on your bite. Once the pieces are connected, have the device boiled to make the material pliable so you can easily custom mold it to your teeth. Once molded, the setting can no longer be altered. The product includes a step-by step instruction on fitting the mouthpiece.

Re-boiling the device up to three times in case it needs reshaping is possible but like any other oral appliances, the product will eventually need to be replaced. Manufacturers recommend replacing the unit every six to nine months.According to its official website, it is normal to experience moderate jaw, teeth, and gum soreness during the first three to five nights of consistent use. If, however, you feel severe discomfort or pain, it is recommended to consult your physician as it may be an indication of a more serious condition.

I’m a petite lady and yes I snore. I had to do something because I know it’s not healthy and my husband needs his sleep too. I bought the Pure Sleep retainer and although the science makes sense I had difficulty using it because it’s still too big for my mouth. My jaws/teeth ache in the morning and I hope it’s not changing my occlusion or recontouring my TMJ. I’ve worn Invisiline to straighten my teeth. Anyone who went through this knows there’s a night retainer to wear to maintain your perfectly straight teeth. Now I can’t wear my Invisiline retainers. After I molded the tray to my bite, I trimmed the PureSleep retainer as they suggested and even used a diamond nail file to smooth rough edges. It fits by jutting my lower teeth forward, I don’t snore now but I find my upper teeth sometimes slip out of the tray at night and I can’t close my lips over the bulky front. I’m embarrassed to show my husband what I look like. This system causes me to produce more saliva at night and get a dry mouth at others. I’ll persevere but I really find it super uncomfortable. Not sure if this system is for women.

My husband and I tried Puresleep and the only thing it did for us was make up salivate. We were not able to tolerate the mouthpiece for even one night and it was a big waste of money.

I received my Pure Sleep just over a week ago and followed the fitting instructions completely to mold the retainer. It took 2-3 nights to ‘get used’ to it. It’s not a comfortable devise and although it does, according to my wife, work partially it induces excessive salivation and aching jaw/teeth in the morning.
After a week I have had to stop wearing the Pure Sleep because the aching teeth has now become one loose tooth, to the point I’m concerned I’m going to lose it. I previously have had no teeth problems so I don’t believe this was a pre-existing issue that was highlighted by the Pure Sleep. I can only think that the Pure Sleep is the cause.
