Introduction – PureSleep Snoring Device Review
The PureSleep seems to be a pretty typical stop snoring device – though it does contain a few unique features that managed to catch my interest. I write quite a bit about stop snoring devices – and at this point, I’ll say that it becomes more and more difficult for these types of products to intrigue me. So many of them are so similar that I sometimes find it difficult to find something ‘new’ to be excited about – and I was almost afraid that this was going to be the case with the PureSleep.
But as I began learning about the company, I began to notice that there were some definite differences between this device and some others on the market – and I’m happy to say that I did find it an interesting product to research. For example – this device has been in use for over 15 years, which is pretty impressive.
The fact that it’s been on the market for so long also means that finding information about it online (like customer reviews) becomes a bit easier – so that’s always a good thing.
At any rate, here’s what I found out about the PureSleep Stop Snoring Device.
The PureSleep was designed to open up the airway and relieve constriction. It’s made of high quality, safety-tested materials, and was co-invented by a pair of doctors – a dentist and an ear, nose, and throat specialist. It uses boil and bite technology to achieve a custom fit, and can even be adjusted further with three different jaw advancement settings.
It’s seen use in clinical practice now for over 15 years, making it a device that’s definitely made its way to the mainstream market – but does it work?
This is really the big question – and according to many of the customer reviews available online, it would seem that the answer may be a ‘yes’. But we’ll talk more about that in a little while. For now, let’s go over some more general information about the product and the company.
The PureSleep is technically a ‘mandibular advancement device’, or MAD. It gets this title from how it works to prevent snoring. Since it works by slightly advancing the jaw during sleep and opening up the airway, the MAD category is definitely the most accurate place for it.
PureSleep hosts some pretty compelling clinical evidence for MADs in-general on their website, though I didn’t find any indication that this product in-particular has been subjected to any clinical trials.
Is this product FDA cleared?
Yes. According to the official PureSleep website, this device has been FDA cleared.

Having said that, I’ve found hardly anything to indicate that any customers have considered the product a ‘scam’. There have been some negative reviews written about it – but I really haven’t seen anything to indicate that this product could be considered ‘illegitimate’ on any level.
How does the product work?
This product basically works by advancing the lower jaw slightly during sleep. It opens up the airway, and helps to prevent constriction. Snoring tends to be caused by the soft palate, when too much constriction causes the air moving in and out to ‘vibrate’ the tissue. By opening up the airway, this device would help to create more room and lessen the odds of vibration – which is how it works to stop snoring from occurring.
What are actual customers saying?
Actual customers have a lot of different things to say about this product – though I’ll definitely say that I’ve seen more good than bad. I have seen some negative reviews, but for a product that’s been on the market for 15 years, I would say that the PureSleep is definitely doing something right.
The main complaint that I’ve heard about this product was actually that it can cause some jaw pain. Some customers also simply said that it didn’t work for them, or that it was too ‘bulky’.
But still, even with the few negative reviews that I found, I found far more that was positive. For it to have only gained the negative reviews that it has (considering that it’s been on the market for 15 years) is definitely saying something positive about it. I was honestly surprised that there weren’t more complaints. To me, this seems to indicate that it really does work for the majority of the people who try it.
All in all, I was very impressed with what customers were saying.
Here’s an example of just one of the many positive quotes about this device that I’ve found.
“PureSleep saved my marriage! I didn’t think I would ever sleep in the same bed with my husband again until we found PureSleep. I am forever grateful!!”
Reviews like this are actually pretty common for this product – which is definitely a good thing.
What you can expect
As with any stop snoring device, it might take you a little while to get used to the PureSleep should you choose to try it. After the first night, you might feel a bit of soreness. You might not even be able to make it through the entire night with the device in your mouth.
After the second night, you should start to feel a lot better about it. By the time you’ve been using it for a week – you should be pretty used to it and begin seeing positive results if the device is going to work for you.
Does this brand stack up against the competition?
Yes, the PureSleep does seem to stack up against the competition in a few different ways. For one, you can try it for thirty days without paying the full price for it – which is nice.
Secondly, you can adjust it by choosing one of three different settings – which makes it more customizable than many other mouthpieces on the market today. And third, it’s been on the market for so long that it has some definite credibility built up. It has a good reputation, and that says a lot in this industry.
Key differences between this product and ‘typical’ solutions
The main differences between this product and other ‘typical’ solutions is that this product has three different customization setting options and a track record of 15 successful years in the stop-snoring-device industry.
Is a prescription or doctor involvement needed?
According to the official PureSleep website, the PureSleep is a ‘Class 2 medical device which requires a prescription from a licensed dentist or physician’. With that being said, it seems that you need to go through a questionnaire on the website before you can order the device directly from the company – so you may, in theory, not need to go to your own dentist to buy the device.
Pros and Cons
Here are the basic pros and cons that I discovered about this stop-snoring device.
- It’s inexpensive
- You can try it for 30 days for just the shipping price
- It has a good reputation among customers
- It uses boil and bite technology, along with 3 different position settings for a customized fit
- Some customers say that it hurts their jaw
- Some customers say that it’s ‘too bulky’ and that it doesn’t work
- While there are clinical trials cited on the website that seem to support MADs in-general, I didn’t see any references to specific studies involving the PureSleep
The PureSleep seems to be a good product for a good price. If you’re looking for a MAD that has a proven track record, then you might want to check it out. I do think that there might be better products on the market – but then again, this device offers a lot of value for a low price.
