If you are torn between VitalSleep and ZQuiet, you are not alone. These tend to be two stop snoring devices commonly compared because they do have some similarities, but they are more different than you might think.
|MAD (with side-to-side jaw motion design)||MAD|
|Boil & Bite plus lower jaw adjustments up to 7 mm||None|
|Toothbrush and toothpaste||Toothbrush and dish soap|
|Two sizes: Large for men and small for women||Two sizes|
|VitalSleep Review||ZQuiet review|
It should also be noted that these oral appliances are both made in America and cleared by the FDA. VitalSleep is a Doctor Trusted site and ZQuiet has an A rating with the Better Business Bureau.
If you are considering VitalSleep, and you have questions, there is a very good chance that countless other people have already asked them. I cover a lot of questions in my VitalSleep snoring mouthpiece review, but some people have followed up with additional questions. Below are answers to some of the most common questions asked about VitalSleep.

MADS or mandibular advancement devices hold your jaw slightly forward in order to open up your airway and keep you from making any snoring sounds. The SnoreRx and the VitalSleep devices are MADs.
Each of the anti-snoring devices fit inside your mouth. Both are very comfortable to wear.
My wife and I found that we preferred the VitalSleep. The VitalSleep provided a more customized fit, cleaned easier, and cost less than the SnoreRx.
|MAD (fixed jaw)||MAD (with side-to-side jaw motion design)|
|Boil & Bite plus Flex Jaw (ten 1 mm settings to provide a more customized fit)||Boil & Bite plus lower jaw adjustments up to 7 mm|
|Denture tablets plus requires disassembly for complete cleaning||Toothbrush and toothpaste|
|One version, over-the-counter||Two sizes: Large for men and small for women|
|SnoreRX Review||VitalSleep Review|
After the boil and bite fitting, we took our time and fiddled with the adjustments settings on both devices to ensure a snug, comfortable fit for each of us. They both worked well. My experience with both of them should enable you to make an informed choice as to which one would be best for you.
My wife and I found that the unique side-to-side motion allowed by the VitalSleep was one of our favorite features. The jaw adjustments, like with the SnoreRx, enabled us to get a great fit after the initial boil and bite fitting.
Another great feature for us was the cleaning. All you need is a toothbrush and dish soap. There are some cracks and crevices, so you have to take your time to ensure that you get rid of all the bacteria.
The box arrived quickly after placing the order. I bought two, a small one for my wife and large for me. We used boil and bite, and then had to tweak the jaw adjustment with the hex tool provided before we were satisfied with the fit.
My son reported that after we had fallen asleep he heard no noise coming from our room. I had to get up to let the dog out at one point, and noticed my wife silently sleeping.
The next morning, other than a slightly sore jaw which usually happens when I first test a device, I felt great. My wife reported she felt fine too.
The second night I adjusted the device slightly and my jaw felt fine the next morning.
Like the SnoreRx, we had to spend a little more time than we expected to clean it with the toothbrush. It did not take too long though.
Overall, the stop snoring mouthpiece worked as advertised. Wearing it stopped my wife and me from snoring.
Oddly shaped, the SnoreRx at first appears as if it would be hard to wear. It isn't. The Flex Jaw technology gives it a more advanced look compared to most other MADS.
Once you complete the fitting process, you will find that it is comfortable an easy to wear. The Flex Jaw, with its tiny increments, provides a simple way to ensure the perfect fit. Unlike exclusive boil and bite fitting MADS, if you do not get the fitting perfect the first time, you have the opportunity to correct any mistake you might have made.
You have to use a two-phase process to clean the SnoreRx. Since it has several movable parts, you will need to first scrub the hard-to-reach areas with a toothbrush and then clean it using a denture cleaning tablet.
It was worth the time it took my wife and I to fit the SnoreRx to our mouths. After the first night, I found that I had some soreness in my jaw. However, I adjusted it slightly with the Jaw Flex and the next morning the soreness disappeared.
The device worked well for both of us. I awoke to use the bathroom around 2 am and my wife was sound asleep, and I could barely even hear her breathing. My wife reported the same experience when she went to put the dogs out. Apparently, I was in a deep and soundless sleep.
The first time we cleaned them, it took seemingly forever. We had to get used to scrubbing it and ensuring we got all the little crevices with the brush. The easy part was dropping it along with a denture tablet into a glass of warm water. Eventually, however, we got used to the process.
The SnoreRx and VitalSleep MADS look different but the fitting, cleaning and results are the essentially the same. Each stopped my wife and me from snoring.
Overall, the price, along with the slightly easier fitting and comfort of the side-to-side jaw movement compared to a fixed jaw position that the SnoreRx device demands, makes me more inclined to recommend the VitalSleep.
The Good Morning Snore Solution and the VitalSleep use two different methods to prevent you from snoring. The Good Morning Snore Solution is a TRD (tongue retaining device) and the VitalSleep is an MAD (mandibular advancement device).
Both devices stopped my wife and me from snoring. The ease of fitting and cleaning the Good Morning Snore Solution made it our favorite of the two.
|Good Morning Snore Solution||VitalSleep|
|TRD||MAD (with side-to-side jaw motion design)|
|None||Boil and Bite plus lower jaw adjustments up to 7 mm|
|Denture tablets||Toothbrush and toothpaste|
|One version||Two sizes: Large for men and small for women|
|$99.94 plus $10 shipping||$59.95 (currently on sale)|
|GMSS review||VitalSleep review|
For me, the snoring mouthpiece of the Good Morning Snore solution took a little more work than the other one, but it really depends on the individual. Make sure to read up on my commentary and experience in using each one to figure out whether the Good Morning Snore Solution or the VitalSleep is appropriate for your needs.
The Good Morning Snore Solution has a peculiar-looking shape compared to some of the other anti-snoring devices. This irregularity is due to the fact that it is a TRD, so it does not always need to conform perfectly to your mouth.
It comes with a small suction bulb that you attach to the tip of your tongue. After you squeeze the bulb, the suction keeps the device in place on your tongue. By stopping your tongue from falling back into your throat while you sleep, it prevents you from snoring.
All you have to do to clean it is drop it into a denture solution.
My wife and I bought two of the devices. They arrived within three days. Since I was used to the boil and fit and adjusting MADs, the TRD was simple to use. All we had to do was simply squeeze the bulb and attach it to the tip of our tongue.
I was shocked the next morning to find that it had stayed on the whole night. My wife and I awoke refreshed and our son reported no sounds of snoring coming from the bedroom the previous night. However, my tongue was quite sore.
By the fourth night, I had no soreness at all.
One problem that might be an issue for some users: you have to breathe using your nose when using the Good Morning Snore Solution. Unlike many MADs, there are no air holes that would allow you to breathe with your mouth as well.
VitalSleep pushes our lower jaw forward and holds it in place. This keeps your airway clear when you sleep.
You need a toothbrush and toothpaste to properly clean it.
The first thing I did when my VitalSleep orders arrived, one large for me and one small for my wife, was clean them both with warm water and dish soap. Then, my wife and I used the boil and fit method to customize the devices.
Before the first night, we used the included hex tool (something else to worry about misplacing) to fit the units to our jaws.
After the first night, we both very refreshed. My teenage son told us that he did not hear any snoring coming from our room. My mouth was a little sore but after making a few small adjustments the rest of the week it felt completely normal.
My biggest complaint was the cleaning process. You really cannot get the device properly cleaned without spending some extra time ensuring that you have carefully brushed every cranny and crack.
Good Morning Snore Solutions and the VitalSleep provide very comfortable fits, as long as you take the time to adjust them. People who have a tendency to grind his or her teeth might want to consider the VitalSleep.
Especially those who tend to bite his or her tongue in their sleep, may find the Good Morning Snore Solution a more suitable purchase. Check my GMSS Coupon and VitalSleep discount pages for savings. We also rate the best mouthpieces for problem snoring.
With snoring that has plagued me my entire adult life, I consider myself 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.
When first reading the product description, I found the VitalSleep mouthpiece to be promising. One of its primary features is its adjustability - notably, no other affordable device on the market today is adjustable besides SnoreRx, which comes in at a higher price point.
This version of the VitalSleep device is the 2018 model. 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 made in the USA from medical grade materials, and it is BPA and latex free.

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. Additionally, Good Morning Snore Solution and SleepTight have received FDA Clearance for use with sleep apnea.
In most respects, this product is like the SnoreRx anti-snoring mouthpiece. However, unlike with the SnoreRx, on this device, the adjustability is not built into the device itself. Instead, it adjusts easily with a small hex tool that is included with purchase.
Price is one of its major competitive advantages VitalSleep has over the competition. Its price reflects the fact that no FDA approval has been received. It is 30-40% cheaper than the comparable brand name devices.
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 was quite simple. You place the device in water that has boiled for about 90-seconds, pull it out and wait a few seconds, then bite down with the arrow on the device facing up.
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. Vitalsleep comes with a tool to adjust the lower tray. This tool is very small and easily misplaced.
Unlike my experience with some of the tongue restraining devices – which took me weeks or months to become accustomed – I became used to wearing this device very quickly. I could successfully use this mouthpiece the first night of testing, but I’m used to sleeping with a device in my mouth - because I test them all the time! First-time users might require a few nights to become accustomed to wearing it.
The air hole on the front of the device is huge - the biggest I’ve ever seen, which makes breathing easier. Also, swallowing isn’t a problem with the VitalSleep, nor is drooling which is very common when wearing a MAD.
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, this is an excellent device to help stop snoring.; it worked for me. The company offers a device sized 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.
One issue I experienced was that the device felt loose while I was wearing it. As a result, I was worried it could fall out during sleep. And I misplaced the hex tool.
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. So, the adjustability may not be suitable for all buyers.
As of August, 2019 the price of the VitalSleep is $99.95. It is one of the lowest-cost adjustable snore guards.
Yes, there a 60-day return policy if the device does not work for you.
With 4.5 stars on reviews, the VitalSleep has a high success rate for decreasing snoring. Users that do not adapt to using the device never see snoring reduction.
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!
The Zyppah and VitalSleep are MADs (mandibular advancement devices). The Zyppah has an additional feature that really makes it more of a hybrid device.
I found each device very comfortable to wear. However, the Zyppah has a slight edge over VitalSleep in terms of effectiveness and comfort. VitalSleep costs less, cleans easier and has a unique design that may be more comfortable for some.

|Zyppah Review||VitalSleep Review|
One of the snoring mouthpieces takes a little more work than the other does; it really depends on the individual. You should read about my experience and commentary on each and then make up your own mind as to whether the Zyppah or VitalSleep will work best for you.
I like the fact that the Zyppah incorporates two types of anti-snoring methods. As an MAD, the Zyppah pushes the lower jaw forward to keep your airway open. As a TRD, it stabilizes your tongue and keeps it from flopping back into your throat and does so, unlike most TRDs, without using a suction cup.
The Zyppah is labeled "made in America" and has FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approval.
I cannot complain about the shipping process. Within 2-3 days of ordering my two Zyppahs, they arrived. After opening the box, my wife and I ensured that we followed the fitting directions carefully as according to user reviews if you do not do so you may encounter problems.
The first night was great. We both awoke refreshed. My son reported that he could not hear any snoring.
Our mouths were a little sore though but after a few days of wearing the Zyppah to bed, the soreness vanished.
Cleanup took less than a minute. We merely put our devices in a glass of warm water and added a cleaning tablet (you can use denture cleaning tablets stocked at any pharmacy). Since the sleek design meant no crevices or cracks for germs to accumulate in, no scrubbing was necessary.
The two week trial ended satisfactorily. My wife and I felt refreshed each morning and my son was not kept awake by any snoring sounds emanating from our bedroom!
Despite its odd appearance, you can easily comfortably fit the VitalSleep to any size and shape of mouth. The VitalSleep has three things that make it easy to fit and use:
- Boil and bite
- Jaw adjustments up to 7 mm
- Design feature that allows side-to-side jaw motion
The first thing I did when my order, one large for me and one small for my wife, arrived was clean them both. We then used the boil and fit to customize the devices. Then the first night we used the included hex tool (something else to worry about losing) to fit the units to our jaws.
After the first night, we both felt great. My teenager advised us that he could not hear any snoring coming from our room. My mouth was a bit sore but after making a slight adjustment the rest of the week I felt fine.
Our biggest complaint was the cleaning. You really cannot get the device properly cleaned without spending a bit of extra time making sure you carefully brushed each cranny and crack.
My wife and I both agreed we were probably spoiled by using the cleaning tablets for other devices we tested. After a week, we got used to the extra brushing.
The Zyppah and VitalSleep provide very comfortable fits. The TRD on the Zyppah may make some more inclined to purchase this device. However, others who have a tendency to grind his or her teeth may want to try the VitalSleep.
Overall, the Zyppah came out ahead for me.
If you are considering Snore Eliminator, chances are good that it is the low price that has piqued your curiosity. The price is definitely budget-friendly, but for just a bit more you can get a product that is more comfortable, effective, and durable. VitalSleep is $59.95, but it is by far the better option.

After spending close to $3,000 on a stop snoring mouthpiece prescribed by a dentist, David Hernandez was inspired to develop an effective solution that wouldn't break the bank.
Hernandez graduated from Daemen College back in 1999 with a degree in physical therapy. He registered The Snore Reliever Company LLC in 2010 based out of New York City, New York.
To design his product he turned to Dr. Richard Koffler M.D. In 1993, Koffler graduated from Tel Aviv University, and today has more than 20 years of experience in medical rehabilitation.
VitalSleep is classified as a Class II anti-snoring device. It was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration with the number of K092942. It also holds patent number 8,534,289.
VitalSleep is sold on a Doctor Trusted website that wears a Consumer Protection Certificate. It was reviewed on September 30, 2013 by Dr. Daniel Hanley M.D. out of Chicago, IL. VitalSleep has an A+ rating and was found to meet the code of conduct required by DoctorTrusted.org, including:
VitalSleep representatives are available by phone and email seven days a week.
VitalSleep Medical Program
If you are a medical doctor or dentist, you may be interested in the VitalSleep Medical Program. You enjoy a special price and your patients get an affordable and effective mouthpiece. An application is available on the VitalSleep website. Learn more about my experience with VitalSleep in my VitalSleep review.
August 2018 Update: SnoreMate is now an outdated product and does not appear to have an active business. Disregard the following information.
The biggest attraction to SnoreMate is its price. At $32 for a single snoring mouthpiece, you really can't go wrong, right? Well, if that $32 ends up tossed in your junk drawer then it is not a very good deal. That being said, maybe a $100 mouthpiece is just not in your budget or perhaps you don't want to splurge until you know a mouthpiece will work for you.
Before you shell out even a penny for a low quality product consider one that is just a little bit more expensive, but also more comfortable, durable, and effective. VitalSleep outshines SnoreMate and it is a very modestly priced product.
