Who Can Wear ZenSleep™?
The company’s site says that it can be worn by a wide range of people. Many mouthpieces can’t be worn if you have dental crowns, bridges, or caps (I don’t have these issues). Plus, the design of an MAD makes it impossible to wear with dentures or loose or weak teeth. Since ZenSleep™ isn’t an MAD and does not sit in your mouth, it can be worn in all above mentioned scenarios. For the same reason, you don’t need a prescription, and you don’t need to buy it from your dentist (if they even have it available).
It is also perfect if you simply can’t get used to having a dental appliance in your mouth. Some people just don’t deal with the sensation of a full mouth – it’s a feeling I got used to with other mouthpieces, but certainly never enjoyed. If this sounds like you, then you will probably like the unique design of this tongue retaining device.
Who is Not a Good Candidate?
You have to breathe through your nose to wear ZenSleep™. So, if you have nasal polyps, a deviated septum, or some type of nose injury that doesn’t permit this then you are probably a better fit for other mouthpieces.
In this case, I would recommend ZQuiet. It was my number one pick for a long time before I started wearing ZenGuard. Although a traditional mouthpiece, it is super flexible and soft. It has Living Hinge Technology, which provides maximum flexibility. So, you can literally talk and even sip water while wearing it.
I actually still wear my ZQuiet when my allergies are bothering me or if I have a cold. So even if ZenSleep™ ends up being your preferred choice, it would not hurt to have ZQuiet as a backup.
Let’s Talk Price
ZenSleep™ costs a little more than some options, but if you buy two the price is in-line with many other products. Regular price is $99.94 for one, but I bought two (one for me, one for the wife) for $129.94, which is $64.97 per unit. So, if you have another snorer in your home or a friend wants to try it too, you definitely get a better deal buying two. You can even just get both for yourself, so you have a backup. You know, in case the dog steals it off the nightstand to bury in the backyard. Surely these events don’t only take place in my house! Really you’ll only need one though – they are very easy to clean, and it should last a long while (standard time is ~1 year).
Note you’ll also pay extra for shipping – I think around $10 in the US. I think they sell in other countries as well, not sure how shipping cost works there. If you want it expedited, shipping price is around $30.
Update: Get the best deal on ZenSleep™
Also, ZenSleep™ has a 30-day money-back guarantee. The fact that there’s no risk is one of the reasons I didn’t argue when my wife wanted to try it (and because she’s especially scary after a night of listening to me snore). If you decide it’s not for you then you just have to request a return authorization number. Then, you still have another 15 days to have it back to the company.
Overall, the price is reasonable (if it works for you). There are definitely cheaper anti-snoring mouthpieces available, so if the price doesn’t suit your budget, check out some other options.
If it sounds like I am overly about ZenSleep™, it is because I truly am. I wanted to hate it simply because I was so sure there was no chance it would work for me. Every day, I’m grateful that my curiosity got the best of me. I know my wife and teenage son feel the same way.
If you are looking for a snoring solution that is comfortable, effective, durable, and safe, I highly recommend ZenSleep™.
