What You Need To Know About ZQuiet
ZQuiet is a stop-snoring device that is supposed to help you get a better night’s sleep… and in turn, have a better life as a result. They say that this device will help you to wake up refreshed and revitalized, that it works for both men and women, that it is small and flexible, and that it will help you to increase your energy levels by helping you to sleep better.
But… does it really work?
We have reviewed several quality MADs… but are always interested in another. And that is the category that ZQuiet falls under.
But does it deliver real value for the cost? And most importantly… will it help you to overcome your snoring problems?
Here is what we found out over the course of our research.
ZQuiet: Product Classification & Instructions For Use
As for instructions for use, it is a bit unique in the sense that you don’t actually have to boil it or mold it to fit it… which is actually something that we were not too sure about at first. I mean, boiling and biting offers you an easy way to get a perfect fit, and many devices like this nowadays utilize this method. The fact that this product doesn’t make use of such technology certainly has its pros and cons.
The good part of it, however, is that it comes ready to use, right out of the box. You can trim it with scissors to achieve a better fit, if the device is rubbing on your gums or anything like that… but as it stands right now, it seems like it is pretty much good to go for use without much in the way of preparation.
You will have to wear the device every night in order for it to work… but that kind of goes without saying. This method will not ‘cure’ your snoring, so to speak, but it will ‘treat’ it… so you need to continue to use the device to continue to benefit from it.
How Does ZQuiet Work?
ZQuiet works pretty similarly to most other mandibular advancement devices on the market. It basically helps to eliminate the root cause of snoring by opening up the airway during sleep. This is accomplished through the use of lower-jaw advancement.
When you wear this device, it basically advances the lower jaw slightly forward… thereby creating more room in the upper airway. This, in turn, helps to decrease your odds of suffering from soft palate vibration.
ZQuiet Clinical Background And FDA Approval
ZQuiet is designated as a ‘Class 2 medical device’ by the FDA. According to the official website, this means that ZQuiet had to prove that the device was not just made from safe materials…. But that it also does what it was intended to do.
This makes it sound like the device has been tested… though we were a bit disappointed at the fact that we failed to find any record of clinical tests on the website. If this product was clinically tested, we just must have failed to find the data… because nothing like this seems to exist on the product website.
Can There Be Any Side Effects?
Jaw soreness is actually a pretty common side effect of using this device (and others like it). But this soreness should disappear within a few weeks of using the device. It just takes the muscles some time to get used to the jaw advancement.
How Much Does ZQuiet Cost?
Ok, this part is a little bit tricky. Basically, you have two options with this product. One, you can try it for just $9.95 for 30 days… or two, you can buy it outright for $79.95, plus S+H. If you try it and don’t return it, you will end up getting charged the full amount anyway… but the ‘try now’ option just gives you the option to try it without paying the full amount up-front.
Then, if you decide that you don’t want it, you can return it without getting charged more… which is nice.
What Do We Know About The Company Behind ZQuiet?
Sleeping Well, LLC. 41 Canal Street, Lewiston, ME 04240.
As for a company history, we are sorry to report that we were unable to find anything on the official product website about this.
It is very possible that the company history is just not supplied here… which disappointed us a bit.
Granted, with this guarantee you are still out the $9.95 shipping costs… but that is it.
Plus, the ZQuiet device also seems to be quite effective for a lot of people.
So no. We are quite convinced that there is nothing ‘scam-worthy’ about this company at all.
Maintenance And Replacement
According to the official website, the ZQuiet will last ‘many months’ of nightly use. You are also supposed to clean the device after each use with warm water, mild dish-soap, and a toothbrush.
What Can Users Expect From ZQuiet?
If you order ZQuiet, then you can expect to be able to use it right out of the box. You will not have to fit it – which has its own set of upsides and downsides.
You will probably experience some jaw discomfort, especially at first… but this should pass within just a few weeks. You may have to trim the device with a pair of scissors if it rubs on your gums.
Does ZQuiet Require A Doctor’s Involvement Or A Prescription?
No. You can order and use ZQuiet without a doctor’s involvement or a prescription.
The ZQuiet does boast some upsides – and while it is an FDA cleared device made from high-quality materials, it may not be our first choice.
But… it is also not our last, either.
It seems that it may have been a risk to develop an MAD that did not come equipped to be fitted at home… but this goes both ways for us. On one hand, it eliminates the possibility of accidentally ruining the device or fitting it incorrectly… but it also takes away the possibility for it to fit perfectly.
But still, with that being said, it seems that ZQuiet still does a lot of things right.
The free trial is a bit gimmicky – but as long as you understand it, you can make it work. I feel like a simple money back guarantee is more straightforward, and I think that ZQuiet probably did it this way to draw people in and increase the odds of getting more sales… but, that is just speculation, and I am not sure that we have enough information to say that for sure.
At the end of the day, ZQuiet will likely work for you. It is a fine option, and while we might like some other devices a bit better, we could certainly see this one working out for most people as well.
The Costs To Get ZQuiet Shipped To Canada
It just costs the initial payment of $9.95 to get ZQuiet shipped to you in Canada.
Where Can I Buy ZQuiet If I Live In Canada?
You can buy ZQuiet from their Canadian distributor at www.zquietcanada.com.
- It is FDA cleared as a Medical Class 2 Device
- It comes ready to use, right out of the box… no fitting required
- You get a 30 day trial, after which you can decide whether you want to pay for it or not
- A lot of small innovations (like the fact that it is flexible and allows you to open and close your mouth) make it unique
- The device cannot be custom fitted
- It can cause some mild discomfort during the first few days or weeks of use
- It does not work for everyone
- It is actually a bit on the expensive side
Summary: Usually we’re quite skeptical when it comes to FREE trials and although we don’t have much against this device, it is certainly not our top choice from MAD range.
