VitalSleep Snore Guard Review

With snoring that has plagued me my entire adult life, I consider myself a bit of a connoisseur of anti-snoring gadgets. And, I always look forward to trying the latest anti-snoring mouthpieces that come on the market.

When I first heard about the VitalSleep snoring mouthpiece, I was intrigued by its innovative design, but uncertain of how comfortably it would fit. I was also slightly skeptical based on the appearance of the device.

About the VitalSleep Anti-Snoring Mouthpiece

When first reading the product description, I found the VitalSleep mouthpiece to look pretty promising. One of its most attractive features is its adjustability – notably, no other affordable device on the market today is adjustable besides the SnoreRx Plus, and that mouthpiece comes in at a modestly higher price point.

The current version of the VitalSleep device was rolled out in 2018. However, searching around online I could not find out much information about what the new features were, and how it compared with previous models.

The VitalSleep device has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in preventing or reducing snoring. Getting the FDA stamp of approval is a lengthy process, with several on-site visits, extensive paperwork, and documentation.

The device is manufactured in the USA using medical grade materials, and it is BPA and latex free.

Comparing the VitalSleep to Its Competitors

Of course, the major brand name competitors such as Zyppah and SnoreRx both have FDA Clearance for snoring, which puts them at a considerable advantage in the eyes of many consumers. On top of that, Good Morning Snore Solution and SleepTight have received FDA Clearance for use with sleep apnea.

In most respects, this product is like the SnoreRx Plus anti-snoring mouthpiece. However, unlike with the SnoreRx, on this device, the adjustability process is not built into the device itself. Instead, you use adjusts a small hex tool (included) to “dial in” the fit that matches your mouth and jaw measurements.

Price is one of its major competitive advantages VitalSleep has over the competition. It is 30-40% cheaper than the most comparable brand name devices. Of course, cost alone is just one factor to consider alongside fit, comfort, longevity etc.

But let me share my personal experience to help you evaluate the possibility.

My Experience with the VitalSleep Mouthpiece


As soon as I received the device, I noticed it was made of thermoplastic and needed to be molded before I could wear it. I followed the instructions and completed the boil-and-bite process – this part really was quite simple.

You place the mouthpiece in water that has boiled for about 90-seconds, and the heat makes it pliable. You then pull it out and wait a few seconds, before biting down to get an accurate positioning of your teeth (make sure the arrow on the device is facing up for this step).

At first, it didn’t feel comfortable enough to wear for any length of time, so I tired the boil-and-bite method again, with the water at a rolling boil, which customized it to my mouth better. You do get enough pliability from this material to retry the measurement two or three times, so no need to stress over your first effort.

After you’ve got the right fit in place, it’s time to adjust the placement of the bottom plate to gently bring your lower jaw forward. VitalSleep comes with a tool to adjust the lower tray. This tool is very small and easily misplaced – so be forewarned.

Unlike my experience with some of the tongue restraining devices – which took me weeks or months to become accustomed to – I became comfortable wearing this device very quickly.

I could successfully sleep with this mouthpiece in during the first night of testing, but I’m already used to sleeping with a device in my mouth because I need them AND I test them all the time!  First-time users might require a few nights to become grow accustomed to wearing it.

The air hole on the front of the device is huge – the biggest I’ve ever seen, which makes ANY degree of mouth-breathing easier. Also, swallowing isn’t a problem with the VitalSleep, nor is drooling which is very common when wearing most anti-snoring mouthpieces.

Comparing SnoreRx, zQuiet, and Zyppah Devices with the VitalSleep

SnoreRx and the VitalSleep are similar devices, and anyone who sleeps well with one would sleep well with the other. The main differences are that VitalSleep requires a small hex tool to be adjusted and has not received FDA clearance, yet.

The VitalSleep has an advantage over the Zyppah because the latter is not adjustable, which is a huge shortcoming. The sizing of the Zyppah will only work on the mouths of a select few. Zyppah also includes a TRD which, though purported to be a helpful anti-snoring feature, makes it more uncomfortable to wear and harder to swallow.

The zQuiet is also not adjustable, and it only comes in two sizes. If these sizes don’t work for you, then, unfortunately, you’re out of luck. With the VitalSleep, it fits everyone. Moreover, while the zQuiet doesn’t have many features, this appeals to some people. As with most devices in this range, you can try it for 30 days to see if it works for you.

Overall, A Great Device

Overall, this is an excellent device to help stop snoring – it certainly worked for me. The company offers a device sized more appropriately for women, too, which is excellent news for female snorers.

The design is excellent, and the appliance is comfortable and effective. Using the boil-and-bite method, you can customize it for your mouth and adjust it even further using the tool provided. The air hole in the front is a great feature which allows you to breathe comfortably, and without having to adjust your style at all.

One issue I experienced was that the device felt loose when I first started wearing it. As a result, I was worried it could fall out during sleep.

And I misplaced the hex tool. Be sure to stow the tool somewhere handy.

I had the VitalSleep on the lowest setting, and still, my jaw protrudes out pretty far. It would be extremely uncomfortable for me to wear this on anything but the lowest setting – especially in that first couple of days when I’m not used to it. So, the adjustability may not be suitable for all buyers.

At the great sale price of $69.95, free same day shipping, 60-day money back guarantee and a one-year warranty this product is worth a try!

VitalSleep FAQ

VitalSleep is a mandibular advancement device (MAD) that works by gently moving the lower jaw forward to open up the airway and prevent the soft tissues in the throat from vibrating and causing snoring. It has a patented Accu-Adjust System that allows you to customize the amount of lower jaw advancement for optimal results.

VitalSleep uses boil-and-bite technology for a custom fit. You heat the mouthpiece in hot water for 45 seconds, cool it briefly in cold water for 3 seconds, and then bite down to create personalized teeth impressions. This provides a comfortable and secure fit.

VitalSleep has a patented Accu-Adjust System that lets you precisely adjust the lower tray to advance your jaw forward and open your airway. You use the included adjustment tool to turn the screws and move the lower tray based on your snoring severity. More advancement helps stop louder snoring.

The main features of VitalSleep include:

  • Patented Accu-Adjust System to customize lower jaw advancement
  • Boil-and-bite fitting for personalized teeth impressions
  • Medical-grade, BPA-free materials
  • Available in two sizes for men and women
  • Allows mouth breathing
  • Comes with a protective travel case
  • 60-night money-back guarantee and 1-year warranty

Compared to other MADs, VitalSleep stands out for its precise adjustability, custom-molded fit, and ability to allow mouth breathing. However, some users find it bulky and say the hard plastic can be uncomfortable. Mouthpieces with a flexible hinge like ZQuiet may be preferable for those who need to fully open their mouth during sleep.
