I Don't Buy It: PureSleep Helps You Stop Snoring

I Don't Buy It: PureSleep Helps You Stop Snoring

If you have a snoring problem, it may not bother you, but I bet whoever shares a bed with you isn't too pleased. I just came across a device called PureSleep ($60) that claims to eliminate snoring. Basically you wear a mouth guard at night that holds your lower jaw slightly forward while you snooze. Moving the jaw forward supposedly helps widen your airway so when you breathe, air isn't being forced down a narrow tube, making that deep snoring sound. I am a bit skeptical. Even if it does work, I bet you end up drooling all over your pillow. It reminds me all too much of my 8th grade retainer (shudder), and I think I'd rather deal with snoring than have to wear a piece of plastic in my mouth for the rest of my life.

Apparently some people are super-excited about this self-molding mouthpiece. To see the commercial for PureSleep and meet some happy users


What do you think? Would you give PureSleep a try?

Don't try this device! I used it for three days and now have the most extreme jaw pain. I haven't used it in over two weeks and my jaw pain is progressively getting worse. My bite has also changed and has not returned to it's original location. The product worked, but it is not worth the pain that I now have. Hopefully it will improve with time.

This is a great device. It treats the cause of your problem which causes you to snore by treating the blockage of your airway which is the posterior portion of your tonque. I purchased the SnoreMeds stop snoring mouthpiece from and it helped me stopped snoring.

If you're worried about hurting your jaw from wearing this retainer you should try 'positioning' yourself for a good night sleep. Try sleeping on your side instead of your back. Sleeping on your back allows gravity to pull your lower jaw backwards which contributes to collapsing your airway causing snoring and apnea. A simple solution would be sewing a tennis ball into a t-shirt, but if you don't know how to sew you can try a simple solution like the they make them for men and women and really work. sean

I thought that this wouldn't really work either..However, one of my patients said that he is using this and it really has helped to stop his snoring.

This is basically a generic version of what people who have obstructive sleep apnea have made for them. I'm skeptical that an off the shelf solution would work for everybody, but the concept is sound. And buffyanne is right, it's not good for you to get too little oxygen as you sleep. Snoring is a sign that your airway is obstructed.

very true spectra, i didn't have any adenoids left when they went to take out my tonsils...not sure if being sick all the time had ruined them or what. That could be another option. :)

I don't snore and neither does my husband (thankfully), but I had a friend who snored until she had her adenoids removed. They took them out with her tonsils because for whatever reason, hers were very large and they interfered with her breathing. It could be another option besides having your uvula removed.

krae, i'm sure it does seem drastic...but being able to sleep is more important to many people.

surgery just to stop snoring seems a bit dramatic.

ilanac - tell your bf to get his uvula removed. They can perform this procedure for snoring i believe...but i had to have mine cut out when i got my tonsils removed. I CAN'T snore...impossible without the uvula there. :)
