These two MADs (mandibular advancement devices) manufactured by Ripsnore and ZQuiet both work with ranging degrees of success.
My spouse and I beautifully slept while using the ZQuiet but the big and ill-fitting Ripsnore showed many of challenges throughout the night. Sincerely consider using ZQuiet and forget about the uncomfortable and ineffective Ripsnore.
You will need to make sure that the fitting process is done correctly with both devices. Understanding several significant details about both items will help you make a decision suited to your needs.
Trying the Ripsnore
I was forced to wait much more than I did for most of the other anti snoring devices I have experimented for the Ripsnore to arrive. The moment I opened the box, my wife and I could immediately tell that the mouthpieces were going to be too big.
After three separate tries with the boil-and-bite fitting technique, I finally managed a comfortable fit. My wife could not wear the device at all because the massive size kept making her gag each time she tried to fit it inside her mouth.
The first night did not end up great for me. As a consequence of the size and awkward structure of the Ripsnore, it kept falling out of my mouth and onto the floor. Through the few times that I could momentarily get it into place, I salivated all over my pillow. I woke up at night, many times, to rinse it off and put it back.
My wife and I were both exhausted the next morning.
I was glad that the cleaning process is straightforward, but this benefit is minor given the effectiveness of the product overall.
Trying the ZQuiet
All you need to do is putting one of the two sizes mouth guards you receive inside your mouth to figure out which ZQuiet best fits for you. I had to adjust my wife is a little with scissors for it to fit correctly. Mine fit just about right.
My wife snored the first night softly though she said she heard no snoring noises coming from me. My mandible was a little sore, but after the second night, the feeling disappeared.
After the two-week trial, we both were delighted with the ZQuiet. The structure usually even makes it possible for you to talk while wearing it. People who suffer from a deviated septum or who have illnesses will prefer the ZQuiet as it lets you breathe through your mouth and keep your air passage open.
Cleaning was a rapid process. The soft, one-piece structure took almost no effort at all to clean with a toothbrush and a little soap.
My wife and I both admit that the SnoreRX, despite its somewhat bulky appearance, is very comfortable to wear and also works.
The most significant drawbacks to the Ripsnore are the size and the fitting manner. The lack of ability to regulate it after the boil and bite technique is a disadvantage.
The simple-to-use design of the ZQuiet meant it took much less time to clean than the elaborated PureSleep.
The Ripsnore is annoying and bulky too even if you can fit it in your mouth. If you are looking for a MAD, then pick another brand like the ZQuiet that puts first functionality and comfort.
