The PureSleep anti-snoring mouthguard helps the user reduce snoring by moving the lower mandible slightly forward to open up the back of the throat and modify air flow during sleep. Similar to its competitors, the PureSleep product is made of a malleable plastic that is molded in boiling water to fit the user’s mouth. However, the softness of the molded plastic together with a unique adjustment feature set it apart from other comparable anti-snoring mouthpieces, making it more comfortable to wear.
In testing and reviewing other anti-snoring mouthguards, my chief complaint has always been that these products can induce high stresses on your teeth, which not only makes them uncomfortable to wear but also can lead to dental problems down the road. For me personally, the discomfort of wearing a mouthpiece prevented me from falling asleep altogether thus rendering the product completely ineffective. However, I’m pleased to report that Pure Sleep was different. The PureSleep product was comfortable enough to allow me to fall asleep.
This brings us to the two distinguishing features of PureSleep: First of all, the moldable plastic material seems slightly softer than what is used in other mouthpieces. This moldable material is set within a thin plastic carrier, which provides the necessary rigidity while allowing the moldable plastic to be softer. This is my working theory as to why PureSleep is more comfortable than most other mouthguard products. Secondly, PureSleep is made as two separate upper and lower parts that attach together using an array of pegs and holes. This attachment mechanism allows three different degrees of lower-to-upper jaw alignment to provide a more effective custom fit.
I tried PureSleep for three days and despite it being comfortable enough for me to use, it still did not prevent my snoring. That is not to say that it won’t effective for others since the effectiveness of anti-snoring mouthpieces is highly dependent on each person’s unique physiology – A calculated risk given the high costs of anti-snoring mouthpieces.
Fortunately, PureSleep provides a 30-day trial period, which limits your risk to an initial $9.95 handling charge. If you are not satisfied within 30 days and choose to return the product, your credit card will not be billed an additional $59.90.
Snoring Product reviews gives PureSleep an editorial rating of 5 out of ten. Factors that contributed to this score include the risks, hazards, and discomfort typically associated with mouthguard appliances as well as its relatively high cost. Still, PureSleep ranks well on our list relative to other anti-snoring mouthpieces and deserves some consideration.
