The ZQuiet is different from a lot of the anti-snoring mouthpieces on the market in that it completely skips the boil-and-bite fitting method. Instead, you receive two sizes of the mouthpiece with every order. The mouthpieces aren’t adjustable, but each size offers a different amount of jaw advancement.

This mouthpiece has a top and bottom plate that are hinged, so you can open and close your mouth naturally during sleep.

How Does the ZQuiet Mouthpiece Work?

The ZQuiet mouthpiece works on the principle of mandibular advancement, in other words, it moves your lower jaw slightly forward. This should result in an immediate reduction in snoring if your snoring is caused by your throat relaxing too much at night and obstructing your airway. That partial obstruction leads to tissue vibration that causes snoring sounds.

Unlike the majority of other mouthpieces, the ZQuiet doesn’t require any preparation. You don’t have to mold the mouthpiece to your teeth using the boil and bite method. Just take it out of the box and start using it.

 

 

Everyone who orders the ZQuiet receives two mouthpieces. Size One is for a slight jaw advancement. The second mouthpiece, Size Two, moves the jaw further forward. The manufacturers recommend using Size One first, and the moving on to Size Two if your snoring hasn’t resolved with Size One.

The ZQuiet has a feature they call Living Hinge technology. This allows for natural movement of the mouth during sleep, as well as for an unobstructed airway. The mouthpiece also has molded “airflow posts” that prevent the mouthpiece from closing completely. This allows for free airflow if you breathe through your mouth at night.

Clean your ZQuiet using warm water and mild dish soap. Scrubbing with a toothbrush will achieve the best results, but don’t use toothpaste since it’s abrasive nature can alter the surface of the ZQuiet. After washing with soap, rinse and then store your device in the storage case that comes with it.

User Feedback:

“ ZQuiet has stopped my snoring, but my front lower teeth are out of alignment every morning for a few minutes, and my bite is off. My dentist recommends that I stop using the device as my bottom front teeth ligaments are being stretched every night. ”

ZQuiet FAQs:

What kind of guarantee does the ZQuiet have?

The ZQuiet has a 30-day trial period. You pay a non-refundable shipping and handling fee of $9.95 to receive the set of 2 mouthpieces (Size One and Two). After 30 days, if you don’t return the ZQuiet, you’ll be billed the full price of $79.95. However, if you aren’t satisfied with the ZQuiet, you just need to call within 30 days to request an RMA number. If you return your mouthpieces within the 30-day-trial period, you won’t be charged the $79.95 fee.

How often do I need to replace the ZQuiet?

ZQuiet states that their mouthpieces should last for many months of nightly use. How long your mouthpiece will last depends on how often you wear it and how tough you are on it, for instance, it won’t last as long if you tend to grind your teeth.

Can I wear this mouthpiece if I have dentures?

You can’t use the ZQuiet if you have full dentures since the mouthpiece is made to be held in place by your teeth. If you are missing a few teeth or have partial dentures, you can probably use the ZQuiet as long as you have enough natural teeth to hold the device in place.

Do I have to keep my mouth closed when wearing the ZQuiet?

No, the ZQuiet is designed to allow for breathing through the mouth during sleep. You can breathe through your mouth or nose while wearing this device. The Living Hinge technology lets you open and close your mouth while sleeping. Some customers even state they can talk or take a drink of water without having to take out the ZQuiet.

Is it hard to get used to wearing the ZQuiet?

If you aren’t used to sleeping with a mouthpiece, it can take anywhere from one night to a few weeks to achieve an optimal comfort level. You might have some jaw soreness initially as you adapt to wearing the ZQuiet.

What is the ZQuiet made from?

The ZQuiet is made from a thermoplastic elastomer and is approved by the FDA as a class II medical device. It doesn’t contain any latex or BPA.

About the Company

ZQuiet comes from a company called Sleeping Well, LLC. They’ve been BBB accredited 2014 and have an A rating. This means that you should be able to count on them for excellent customer service. They’re based in Shelburne, VT.

Should You Buy a ZQuiet Mouthpiece?

If you don’t care for the boil-and-bite fit, which can create bulkiness, it may be worth your while to try out the ZQuiet’s 30-day trial. You’ll receive two jaw-placement-related sizes to try. The only thing is that you have to be willing to lose the $9.95 and return shipping if you decide it’s not the right anti-snoring device for you.
