My spouse has something in common with millions of people around the world-he snores. I would say he is a chronic snorer with mild sleep apnea. If you have ever been with someone who snores and you are a light sleeper, you know that it is almost impossible to get a quality night’s sleep. Not only does this affect your concentration and energy level the next day and subsequent days, but it can cause problems between you and your spouse if you can’t find an adequate anti snoring device solution.
In order to get a decent night’s sleep, I tried several different anti snoring devices to see if they would help. I first tried the “Breathe Right” nasal strips, but because my spouse is a heavy snorer, this didn’t seem to help. I also tried anti snoring pillows as well as a nose clip which claimed to “open the nasal passages” and reduce snoring. These solutions had minimial success, so I finally decided to try the VitalSleep Mouthguard.

The VitalSleep anti snoring mouthguard is made out of flexible material that molds to the shape of the snorer’s teeth and jaw. When inserted, the mouthpiece gently pushes the lower jaw forward. This allows the air to flow freely and the snoring is either reduced or stopped altogether.
To mold the mouthpiece for a custom fit you just place the mouthguard in boiling water, allow it to cool for a few seconds and then insert the mouthpiece into your mouth and bite down. This creates a “custom mold” so that the mouthpiece fits properly. This process was fairly easy and if you make an error, VitalSleep will send you a new one free of charge.
The first couple of nights my spouse wore the VitalSleep Mouthguard, it was somewhat difficult to get used to. My spouse said his mouth was slightly sore for the first couple of days. The mouthpiece also kept falling out of his mouth which was a bit annoying, but he finally became used to sleeping with it. After a week, I noticed a considerable difference. His sleep was more restful – and so was mine!
My husband has been using the VitalSleep Mouthguard for 6 months now with great success. But keep in mind that the Vitalsleep Mouthguard isn’t for everyone. If you snore through your nose and not your mouth, this mouthguard most likely won’t work. It’s also not recommended for those with a smaller than average mouth. With regular use the mouthguard will only last about a year and will need to be replaced.
However, at a price of only $49.95, its a pretty affordable solution to re-purchase once a year. The VitalSleep anti snoring mouthpiece also includes a 30 day money back guarantee and 1 year warranty with free replacement program. If you have tried other anti snoring devices without good results, then the VitalSleep Mouthguard may be the perfect solution for you.
