Top 5 Anti-Snoring Mouthpieces

by Judy Myer on October 10, 2013

Anti-snoring mouthpieces have been identified by the American Dental Sleep Medicine as effective treatment for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. With so many of these devices on the market nowadays, it can be difficult to choose the one that would work most effectively for you. For your easy reference, we have compiled the top 5 anti-snoring mouthpieces according to quality, comfort, user ratings, and price.

Rank No. 5 Snore Guard

Snore Guard is a reputable brand which has been in clinical practice since 1989. This jaw-retaining device is safe and easy to fit with a patented Air Flow Technology that enables you to comfortably breathe through your mouth as you sleep.

While the device is deemed effective, it works best only for three to six months, afterward it is recommended to have the unit replaced. It may be one of the reliable anti-snoring mouthpieces around but patients in the US are somewhat discouraged to obtain it since it requires prescription and fitting by a dentist. If you are in Canada, though, no prescription is necessary for purchase and you can fit the unit yourself.

Rank No. 4 Vital Sleep

Landing on the fourth spot is an adjustable and customizable jaw retaining mouthpiece. Vital Sleep, an FDA cleared device is made of 100% USA sourced and USA manufactured BPA-free materials. The device is equipped with an adjustable sliding mechanism that enables you to micro-adjust the mouthpiece with a mini hex key to achieve optimum results. It reportedly has a 92% success rate in reducing snoring.

Vital Sleep lasts at least a year depending on your personal use and care of the device. You will be sent free replacements, though, for up to 1 year for any reason.

Rank No. 3 Good Morning Snore Solution

The only tongue retaining device that made it to our list is Good Morning Snore Solution. Needless to say, instead of repositioning your jaw to prevent snoring, a tongue retainer such as Good Morning Snore Solution gently holds your tongue in place to keep it from falling backward into the throat and create wider air passage. Unlike mandibular advancement devices, this mouthpiece does not leave any jaw pain, facial pain, and tooth or gum damage which are usually the effects associated with wearing jaw holding appliances.

Good Morning Snore Solution is FDA-cleared and is backed by clinical studies. It is also registered with several regulating bodies including Health Canada, European Commission, ARTG, and FDA among others. Unlike jaw holding devices which are not suitable for people with dentures, this device was created with endentulous people in mind. However, you will need to be able to breathe normally through your nose otherwise it is not your best bet.

Rank No. 2 Zquiet

Most jaw retaining devices require preparation such as heating the device and shaping it for custom fit. This product which is second on our list, however, is engineered to be ready for use right out of the box. It comes with a Living Hinge Technology which enables you to freely open and close your mouth while you sleep.

While the size is intended to fit nearly everyone, it does not have the ability to micro-adjust. Still you can trim the edges to improve the fit if needed. As for its work life, the official site does not mention exactly how long the unit is supposed to last. See our review of Zquiet for more details.
