SleepPro is a British made anti-snoring mouthpiece that is classified as a mandibular advancement device that works by holding your jaw in a forward position. The product is manufactured and designed by SleepPro Limited under a sales partnership with MEDiTAS Limited.
This symbiotic relationship means that the former mainly focuses on improving the product as the latter focuses on delivering it to the market. To this end, the brand is made up of SFA, Custom and original versions of the mouthpiece reflecting the diverse needs of a wide customer-base.
Here is what we discovered during the course of our research when writing this SleepPro review,.
SleepPro – Product Overview
If you look at it closely, the standard SleepPro mouthguard resembles many other MADs on the market – but if you are keen enough you will note a few distinguishing characteristics here and there. For instance, its design accommodates two air holes that create enough room for breathing through the mouth.
Now, if you have ever tried other MADs, I am sure you will understand the importance of these two holes. Actually, this is the main feature that you should care much about when looking to upgrade your anti-snoring device.
If you are able to breathe better, then automatically your quality of life will improve and you will stand to gain more benefits from using that particular device. However, if breathing is inhibited, no matter how effective the device is, then you may not even stand the magnitude of its flaws.
A mouthpiece that comes without air holes will force you to breathe through your nose which may not be convenience to everyone. At the same time, an MAD with tiny holes may not provide you with adequate space to breathe freely. In the end, such mouthpieces can be likened to trying to get oxygen through a straw – it’s pretty difficult and unnatural.
Using a restrictive MAD can cause serious health problems particularly if you have a deviated septum, nasal polyps or sinus issues.
Another outstanding feature of SleepPro is that it is designed to provide a custom-fit by moulding to the shape of your mouth.
This is achieved through the use of Boil-and-Bite technology. In addition, the company has availed several versions of this particular product mainly because there is no one-size-fits-all MAD. Different people, of different age and gender may not have the same mouth size and contours.
Going by that fact, SleepPro has diversified its product’s range as follows:
SleepPro Easifit MAD
This is the most basic version of SleepPro and it is designed to serve as an introductory mouthpiece. It is recommended for the beginner and it provides a safe bet for anyone looking for a low cost, effective snoring treatment.
This one is designed specifically with the fairer sex in mind. It is slightly smaller than others as it is meant to provide a comfortable fit against the shape of the mouth. One outstanding feature about SleepPro Woman is that it is pink in color giving in a more feminine outlook.
SleepPro Sleep Tight
This MAD is suitable for those who toss and turn a lot throughout the night until the anti-snoring appliance moves out of its place. Sleep Tight is reinforced by twin polymer technology, which provides greater stability, and a better fit through Boil-and-Bite technology.
This is a more advanced version of the Standard MAD. It has 7 settings to allow one to adjust it against the mouth contours until precise tension is achieved. While this works like most other mouthpieces, the difference is that it is a little more tailored – and therefore a little more comfortable to wear.
One thing that stands out about this mouthpiece is that it is thinner and more comfortable than others. It is made specifically using an impression mold of your teeth hence it comes with special ridges that coincide with the natural position of your teeth.
In order to achieve a better custom-fit, the company recommends that one should create a dental impression using a special kit and then mail it to them so they can create a customized product.
How Does SleepPro Work?
Because this is a mandibular advancement splint, it works by simply advancing your lower jaw to introduce a slight tension on the soft tissues. By doing that, your upper airway is kept open meaning more space for you to breathe. This mechanism works for nearly everyone.
Doctors and dentists across the world have approved it and the success rates so far have been quite encouraging. But as if that is not enough to convince a potential buyer, SleepPro have gone ahead and offered a 30-day money back guarantee.
It is however worth clarifying that this device may not work if your snoring problem is caused by different complications other than airway blockage. For instance, use of an MAD may not necessarily provide the desired results if the underlying problem is nasal blockage, throat infection or growth.
So if you use it without any success, it is important to rule out the risk of a potentially dangerous problem by consulting your dentist.
Basically, a mouthpiece such as this seeks to provide the same kind of anti-snoring relief like a surgery but without the pain and agony of a surgeon’s knife.
How Effective Is This SleepPro Mouthpiece?
This MAD is meant to work within minutes of wearing it and falling asleep. If it completely fails to work (i.e. fails to work even for a short while) even after you fit it correctly then it means your problem lies elsewhere.
However, if it works for a short while and then stops, then you know that moving your jaw forward is the right treatment and you only need to find a mouthpiece that is customized for you. Some people are lucky to find that their very first SleepPro order works and so they don’t have to request for a replacement.
On average, this earns a success rate of 80% particularly among those who are willing to have it tweaked a little bit. And the best thing about it is that there is a standard version of it that is not too bulky. So if you are looking for something thinner and slimmer then you can always request for it specifically.
As for those who wear dentures, yes it is possible to use this MAD particularly if the front teeth are free. Alternatively, you can supply the company with an impression of your mouth so they can produce a customized solution for you.
