Introduction – RipSnore Stop Snoring Device Review
The Ripsnore is a stop-snoring device that I’ve been hearing a lot about recently. In visiting their website, I was greeted with a well-put-together collection of pages and some pretty good information, so I was excited to write this review and to learn more about the product.
The Ripsnore manufacturer makes some pretty bold claims on their website.
They call their device the ‘original anti-snoring device’, and say that it is literally ‘the most effective device on the market’.
Are these claims true? Here’s what I found when writing this RipSnore review.
Here are some of the product details that I learned about while researching the Ripsnore.
- The Ripsnore holds the lower jaw slightly forward to help prevent the vibrations in the back of the throat that cause snoring
- It also helps to treat teeth-grinding because it fits over the teeth
- According to the official company website, the Ripsnore has been shown to be 98% effective in stopping or reducing snoring among those who’ve tried it
- It comes with a 45 day money back guarantee
- It features a natural contour design with an airflow post
- It’s made from dynaflex, and is technically a class 1 medical device
This product is technically an MAD, or mandibular advancement device.
The Ripsnore is said to have a 98% success rate – and as it turns out, the process by which they came up with this number is actually well documented on the FAQ section of their website. They did an independent study in 2009, in which they surveyed 300 different customers and ended up with this statistic.
I’m actually impressed with how documented this information is. While I’m not sure if this technically falls under the realm of a ‘clinical trial’, it does seem that the company put extra effort into figuring out if their device was working well or not – so kudos to them for going to the trouble.

Is this product FDA cleared?
Yes, this product is FDA cleared. It has also been certified as a class 1 medical device by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Association.
You can actually order two of these devices for $67 – which makes them very inexpensive and also gives you an extra device at the same time. You can either give the extra to your spouse or save it for when you happen to need another – all while paying less for two than you would for a lot of single mouthpieces.

This definitely looks like a legitimate company that’s doing legitimate business with a real product. So on the ‘scam’ end of things, I came up with nothing.
How does the product work?
Snoring is almost always caused by vibrations that occur along the airway or the throat. When the tissues ‘vibrate’, the result is disturbed sleep and a sound that could bother you or those around you. This device, however, is designed to alleviate the problem by opening up the airway. It accomplishes this by holding the lower jaw slightly forward during sleep. This, in turn, helps to create more room in the back of the throat and reduce the odds that snoring will occur.
What are actual customers saying?
I have heard a few negative reviews about the Ripsnore – though honestly, I didn’t find that much worth reporting. They seem to be a legitimate business with a good customer track record. I’ve heard some people say that the device is rather cheaply made and that it isn’t shaped as well as some other similar products on the market – but then on the other hand, many customers didn’t mention this at all.
I feel that customer feedback about the Ripsnore is probably better than it is worse – which is always a good sign.
What you can expect
As with most mandibular advancement devices, you can probably expect at least a bit of discomfort at first as you get used to wearing it. During the first night or two you might also be able to expect some drooling. Don’t be too surprised if you can’t make it through the entire night wearing the device – especially if you don’t have a ton of experience with mouthpieces like this.
After five to seven days, you should definitely begin to feel more comfortable. If the Ripsnore is going to work for you, then you can probably expect to be feeling good about sleeping through the night with it after about a week.
Does this brand stack up against the competition?
The Ripsnore definitely seems to be a device that’s well made and does what it was designed to do. It’s also less expensive than some other brands out there. With that being said, however, price might really be the only thing that makes it any different from other similar mouthpieces on the market. I didn’t see a lot of unique features in this device that would really cause it to stand out.
Key differences between this product and ‘typical’ solutions
The biggest difference between this product and other ‘typical’ solutions is probably the fact that it’s less expensive. Aside from this, I didn’t see much difference.
Is a prescription or doctor involvement needed?
No. You can purchase and use this device without a doctor’s involvement.
Pros and Cons
Here are the basic pros and cons that I discovered about the Ripsnore mouthpiece.
- It comes with a 45 day money back guarantee
- It’s made from Dynaflex and is FDA cleared
- It’s very affordably priced
- The company has a good reputation with the BBB
- It uses boil and bite technology for a custom fit
- It doesn’t really offer any unique features
- Some customers have said that the device isn’t as well made as some of the newer mouthpieces on the market
- Some reviews have said that the device is difficult to keep in the mouth while sleeping
In the end, I wasn’t disappointed with what I learned about this device – though I will say that it wasn’t the ‘flashiest’ model on the market either. Some other mouthpieces have more to offer in terms of features – though, to be fair, the Ripsnore is also very inexpensive – so that’s something that should definitely be taken into account.
All in all, I would recommend this product if you’re looking for a simple, inexpensive mouthpiece with a good money back guarantee. If you end up not liking it, you could always return it and get your money back.
But many customers like it – so you might end up keeping it and saving some cash in the process.
Costs and shipping
This product costs $67 to buy, but ships for free – which is definitely nice!
The best place to buy the Ripsnore is on the official company website. If you search on Google, you will find the most relevant site based on your GEO location.
