Both the ProSnore and ProSnore II are made by the same company and are basically the same device. The only real difference between the two is that the ProSnore II is a two piece design that fits over both the upper and lower jaw.
The original ProSnore fits only over the lower jaw. So, the real question is how good is this device? It was created by a dentist so it must be amazing right? The answer might surprise you.
As I said, both of these mouthpieces are pretty much the same thing. That being said, they both work the same way. These are jaw retaining mouthpieces.
That means that they work by moving your lower jaw forward while you wear one. The general idea is that by moving the lower jaw forward during sleep that the mouthpiece will be able to significantly reduce the amount of pressure on your airway and reduce constriction as a result.
When the airway is not constricted it is very unlikely that you will snore. These mouthpieces certainly do move your jaw forward, but is that really your problem? Too often this kind of solution just creates chronic pain and bite issues that may or may not be able to be fixed by a dentist. This kind of solution is not ideal for most snorers.
The ProSnore and ProSnore II were created by a real dentist with real world experience. According to the information provided on the company website he has around 30 years of experience as well as a few other credentials.
I would have expected him to create a better device than this, but we’ll get to that soon enough. There is some kind of satisfaction guarantee offered by the company, but there’s a catch.
It is not a money back guarantee, nor is it directly related to your actual satisfaction. The makers of this product simply guarantee that this device is nearly identical to one that you would get from a dentist and that it is approximately one third of the cost.
That’s not much of a guarantee. If you are unhappy with the product there is very little you can do.
Although these products were created by a dentist, the devices themselves are not FDA approved. That surprised me. I was really expecting them to be FDA approved since the creator is a medical professional.
The company also has no record with the BBB. That isn’t a good thing, but it could be much worse. However, that also means that no complaints have been filed with the BBB about this company.
There is one and only one main difference about these mouthpieces. When you order, you do not receive the mouthpiece you purchased. You receive a kit that is used to customize the fit for you.
Once you use the fitting kit to make an impression of your teeth, you send the kit back to the company. From there a new mouthpiece is customized to fit the impression you sent them. It is very similar to having a custom device fitted by your dentist.
Things have been fairly positive up to this point. To make a long story short I expected more from these devices. Others feel the same way apparently. For every success story about the ProSnore or ProSnore II there is a story about it failing to do its job.
There is also a significant break-in time associated with these two solutions. That can cause pain for many people. This solution isn’t bad; it just doesn’t work for some people.
Overall, these two mouthpieces are not bad. The problem is that they aren’t great either. Given the background of the company and the dentist that created them I really expected more.
I will not recommend this solution because of that. There are too many other options that work better and cost less.
