Loud and persistent snoring is not only an embarrassing condition, and one that can put a strain on relationships, but it can also be a signal of more serious health conditions. Snoring can lead to dry mouths, parched throats, and increased bacteria that can cause other illnesses. Most importantly, snoring can lead to the development of obstructive sleep apnea, which in turn can put you at increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, heart arrhythmia, and chronic acid reflux disease.
Snoring occurs when the flow of air of through the nose and mouth is physically obstructed or impeded. Such physical obstruction can be caused by a number of factors, such as obstructed nasal passageways, poor muscle tone in the tongue and throat, bulky throat tissue, and a long soft palate and/or uvula.
Snoring problems can be addressed through painful surgery or expensive medication, but the simplest way to address this issue may be through the use of an anti-snoring device. Of these devices, the ZQuiet anti-snoring mouthpiece is one of the most popular. There are many benefits of ZQuiet, the primary ones being comfort and effectiveness.
ZQuiet is a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD). MADs work by holding the lower jaw and tongue forward in order to open up the airway and prevent the tongue from falling back and obstructing it. Unless you have false or uneven teeth, gum disease, or tempro-mandibular joint dysfunction, a MAD is probably the best option to treat your snoring short of a surgical procedure. In recent years, MADs have become much more popular than CPAPs, or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure ventilators, which essentially blow a constant stream of air down your throat in order to keep the airway open.
ZQuiet, which is manufactured in the USA by Sleeping Well, LLC, offers a 2-Step Comfort System with two unique mouthpieces designed treat snoring with the utmost comfort and efficiency. The device was created and designed in partnership with a respected dentist and sleep specialist, Dr. Avery Lieberman, DDS. The mouthpiece comes in two different sizes for men and women, and because it is made from a soft and flexible material, it fits 97% of all mouths with no further adjustment needed.
The material that ZQuiet is made from is non-toxic, odorless, and flavorless, and does not contain latex or BPA. The material has been specifically formulated for medical devices and conforms to all FDA standards and regulations.
The biggest benefit of ZQuiet is its Living Hinge technology. With its contour cutout and dual airflow posts, the Living Hinge allows you to breathe easily through your mouth and nose and, unlike other bulky mouthpieces that lock your jaw in an uncomfortable clenched position, allows you to move your mouth freely.
One other major difference with ZQuiet is that it does not rely on the “boil and bite” method of custom fitting that most other MADs use. ZQuiet works immediately, right out of the package and into your mouth, and is guaranteed to improve your snoring from the very first night. Decades of research have proven that ZQuiet treats snoring effectively for over 90% of the people who try it. ZQuiet is a designated Class II medical device according to the FDA, which means that the manufacture not only had to prove that the device is safe, but that it actually does what they say it does. If that isn’t enough to inspire confidence in you, the manufacturer offers a 30 day risk free trial for $9.95.
Before you order, please keep in mind that ZQuiet is a high performance medical device and is restricted to sale by or on the order of a dentist or physician. Talk to your doctor and find out of ZQuiet is right for you.
