PureSleep: Must-Read Review Before You Buy

by Denise Wagner on October 10, 2013

PureSleep has obtained a good reputation and credibility since it is a solution requiring prescription. Question is, would it work for you? That is what you’ll find out here along with its advantages and disadvantages, plus real user experiences  taken from other PureSleep reviews.

What Is PureSleep?

PureSleep is a self-molded jaw retainer that is FDA-cleared and made in the USA of high quality, safety-tested materials. It is co-invented by a dentist and an Ear, Nose & Throat Specialist, and has been used in clinical setting for over 15 years to treat snoring.

How Does It Work?

The device includes upper and lower pieces that can be joined together in three settings depending on your bite. Once the pieces are attached, it is then boiled to soften the material so you can mold it perfectly to your teeth in no time. It can be customized for your comfort and can easily be fitted in minutes. However, once the device has been molded, you cannot alter the settings any further.
PureSleep is one of the many anti-snoring mouthpieces that are created according to manidbular advancement technique. That means it works by holding your lower jaw slightly forward so the air passage is wide enough allowing air to move through unobstructed and preventing vibration of the soft tissue which causes snoring.

Advantages

  • Customizable. It can be molded and adjusted by multiple settings at the time the device is custom-fitted.
  • Safe. It has obtained FDA clearance which suggests that it is safe for the treatment of snoring. The device is proudly manufactured in the US with only American-sourced, biocompatibility tested materials. It has also been in clinical practice for over a decade now.
  • Easy to fit. Like many anti-snoring mouthpieces, you simply immerse the unit in boiling water, remove it to coll and mold it to the shape of your mouth.

Disadvantages

  • Requires prescription. This Class II medical device is for sale exclusively by prescription through the company, and its physician and dentist partners.
  • Setting limitation. Once the unit has been molded, you can no longer adjust the setting. There is no ability to readjust it for an improved fit afterward.
  • Restricts movement of the mouth when you sleep. A few brands are designed to enable the natural movement or opening and closing of the mouth while you are sleeping. PureSleep is not equipped with that ability.
  • Adjustment period. It may take a couple of days or more to get accustomed to using the device. You may experience jaw, teeth, gum, or facial discomfort.
  • Not for everyone. It is not for people who are wearing dentures, severe gum disease, or individuals with TMJ or problem with the jaw hinge.
  • Working life. It undergoes normal wear and tear and replacement is recommended every 6 to 9 months. You may need to have it replaced sooner if you have bruxism or the habit of grinding your teeth while you sleep. Other brands last longer though – up to 12 months or longer.
