The SleepTight Mouthpiece is a new arrival on the anti-snoring mouthpiece market. It was introduced in mid-2014 after being cleared by the FDA for safety and effectiveness in the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea.

The SleepTight Mouthpiece falls into the category of oral appliance therapy for snoring. Worn only during sleep, anti-snoring mouthpieces fit like a mouth guard that’s worn in sports. Research shows that oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. SleepTight claims that what sets them apart from others is their mouthpiece’s snug fit and increased airflow for breathing through the mouth.

Snoring is a sound that occurs during sleep when soft tissue in the upper airway vibrates as you breathe. Snoring is extremely common in men, but also frequently occurs in women, especially during pregnancy and after menopause. The sound of snoring tends to bother the snorer’s partner or roommate the most, but loud snoring can wake up the person who snores, too. Loud and persistent snoring is often a sign of obstructive sleep apnea.

How Does the SleepTight Mouthpiece Work?

The SleepTight Mouthpiece is designed to hold the lower jaw forward. It also may help to hold the tongue forward to keep the airway free. Snoring is often caused by an airway blockage either in the back of the throat, the nasal passages or a combination of both. SleepTight claims that its positioning can improve nasal breathing as well as mouth breathing because of the way it positions the jaw and tongue in the mouth.

Before using it, you’ll need to create a custom-fit by submerging it in hot water for three minutes. Then, after making sure it’s cooled sufficiently, you’ll bite down on the mouthpiece, but with your lower jaw in a slightly forward position. If you find that you don’t like the way your jaw is placed, you can put the mouthpiece into hot water and fit it again, for up to four or five tries. After this number of fittings, the mouthpiece may become too rigid to set again. The mouthpiece kit comes with an airway fitting tool that you only use during fitting. Then when you wear the SleepTight, you can breathe through your mouth with the open air hole. You should experience a reduction in snoring the first night that you use it.

When you order the SleepTight Mouthpiece, you’ll receive the mouthpiece, a storage case, an airway fitting plug and step by step fitting instructions.

SleepTight FAQs:

Does the SleepTight Mouthpiece come with a guarantee?

It comes with a 30-day guarantee that allows you to return the mouthpiece without being charged its full price. However, when you first order the SleepTight, you have to pay $9.95. There’s no mention of being refunded that $9.95 by the company. Once the 30 days is up, you’ll be charged the full cost of the mouthpiece (an additional $59.95) and you can no longer return it for a refund.

How long will the SleepTight Mouthpiece Last?

With proper care, it will last from anywhere from six months to two years. It depends on how often you use it and on individual factors such as whether or not you clench your jaw or grind your teeth during the night.

Can anyone use the SleepTight Mouthpiece?

Just about anyone can use this mouthpiece with a few exceptions. Don’t use the SleepTight if you have:

– Have asthma

– Have central sleep apnea

– A severe respiratory disorder

 

Check with a dentist before using the device if you have loose teeth, periodontal disease, TMJ or other dental problems. If you wear full dentures, you can’t wear this mouthpiece. Partial denture wearers can use it as long as they have enough teeth to hold the mouthpiece in place.

How do you take care of the SleepTight?

After use, rinse it off and brush it with a soft toothbrush and liquid soap. Toothpaste isn’t recommended because it can be abrasive and wear away at your mouthpiece.

I wore the SleepTight last night and was drooling like crazy! Is this normal?

This is normal and should stop after a few nights of use. Sometimes the body will interpret the mouthpiece as food that requires saliva. This is a common occurrence that will go away over time.

About the Company

The SleepTight mouth guard has been on the market since the summer of 2014 when it received FDA clearance. The SleepTight was developed by a dentist and chronic snorer named Mike Williams. He’d been on a search to find a nonsurgical solution to snoring. He partnered with Paul Swann, a mouth guard researcher and developer based in the United Kingdom, and they worked together for three years to design the SleepTight mouth guard after evaluating thousands of customers’ experiences around the globe. The mouthpiece was conceived in the U.S. and is manufactured in the U.K.

Should You Buy a SleepTight Mouthpiece?

From what I’ve seen, this mouthpiece does effectively reduce snoring. The large air hole allows for easy breathing through your mouth and the fit is fairly snug. I haven’t seen any complaints saying that this mouthpiece has fallen out of customers’ mouths during the night. The snug fit also cuts down on any rubbing or chafing during use. However, I would feel more comfortable recommending this to everyone if I knew what the heck it’s made from. If you have a latex allergy or are concerned about BPAs in plastics, you might want to hold off on purchasing this mouthpiece until the manufacturers tell us more. If you don’t have either of those concerns, this seems like an effective way to reduce snoring.
