Top 5 Anti-Snoring Mouthpieces

by Denise Wagner on February 11, 2013

Anti-snoring mouthpieces or mandibular advancement devices (MAD) as they are also called are generally designed to gently position your lower jaw forward to create a free airway through your throat thereby eliminating the vibrations that cause snoring. While there are plenty of brands offering anti-snoring mouthpieces, features, designs, and materials vary to ensure efficiency and user satisfaction.

Since we have had several anti-snoring mouthpiece reviews on this site, we decided to compile the top 5 anti-snoring oral devices based on customer reviews, features, comfort and ease of use, and price to help you see the differences and help you determine which one could ultimately work for you.

#5 Puresleep

Made of quality and FDA cleared and tested materials, Puresleep grabs the fifth place in our list. It comes with a patented adjustable design that can be molded to perfectly fit in your mouth. Its upper and lower pieces can be adjusted in three settings depending on your bite. Replacement is recommended every 6 to 9 months. The mouth guard has been used in clinical practice for over 15 years now to cure snoring. There are certain downsides to this device though. Once you have molded it, you can no longer adjust it. The device can also lose its shape after a short period of time and reheating it does not restore the unit. For detailed information and reviews on Puresleep, click here.

#4 Snore Guard

Landing on the fourth spot is a clinically proven anti-snoring mouth guard that comes in a one-piece design. Snore Guard requires prescription and can only be professional fitted by a dentist if you are in the United States otherwise you can purchase and fit the mouthpiece yourself. Similar to typical athletic mouth guards, it comes with an inner lining that is softened by heat during preparation for fitting. The product does not have elastic bands or wires compared to other mouthpieces. Replacement is recommended every 12 to 14 months. Snore Guard has already been around and used in dental clinics for over two decades. The disadvantage is that you cannot easily obtain it without prescription and the cost may vary depending on your doctor’s fee since you will need to have it fitted professionally. Refer to our in-depth review on Snore Guard for detailed information.

# 3 Vital Sleep

Made from flexible, FDA cleared non-latex and BPA-free materials, Vitalsleep is a customizable anti-snoring mouth guard which enables fine incremental adjustments to ensure comfortable fit. The product is available in two sizes – regular and small. In case you get the wrong size, you can have it replaced free of charge. This anti-snoring mouthpiece lasts approximately 9 to 12 months with regular use. The manufacturer provides a one full year warranty and free replacements.

# 2 Zquiet

Zquiet is FDA cleared signifying that the materials are approved for the treatment of snoring. It is made of soft rubber texture designed for optimum comfort.  With Zquiet, opening and closing your mouth as a natural process during sleep is not constrained. That is made possible because of the living hinge technology that allows the mouthpiece to fit into your mouth without restricting it from movement while you sleep. The product does not require any preparation or molding prior to usage as it easy and ready to use out of the package and into your mouth.  It is available in one size that fits all but you can adjust it for a more comfortable fit by cutting the edges of the mouthpiece. Replacement depends on the individual but the unit can last for many months of nightly use. We have an article detailing advantages and disadvantages of Zquiet, click here to check it out.
