What can I expect when I try ZQuiet® for the first time?
Some people have no side effects at all when trying ZQuiet® for the first time. Others can have challenges with feeling pressure on the front teeth, an urge to cough, excessive saliva or unconsciously removing the device while sleeping. These experiences lessen with time and use. We recommend wearing ZQuiet® for short periods of time while you are awake to help get accustomed to the device. Remember, after a short adjustment period, everyone can enjoy quiet restful sleep!
How fast should I expect to see results with ZQuiet®?
You should expect to see results the very first night you use it. Optimal results occur after determining which jaw advancement (Comfort 1 or Comfort 2) works best for you.
How long will the jaw discomfort or soreness last while I’m getting used to my ZQuiet®?
Some jaw discomfort is completely normal when using a mouthpiece that re-positions the lower jaw. Just like when you get sore muscles from trying a new exercise, your jaw muscles my experience temporary soreness while they adjust. We find that most people adjust to the device within 2 days to 2 weeks and after that short period of time, the discomfort disappears. In the event that you have persistent or prolonged jaw discomfort that lasts for more than 2 hours after removing the device, please discontinue use of ZQuiet®, and contact your dentist.
ZQuiet® makes me drool more than usual. Is this normal and how long will it last?
Drooling is a common issue for many customers and usually disappears with continued use. The body’s natural response to having a device in your mouth is to salivate. Most customers find that within a range of 2 days to 2 weeks, the drooling stops and you achieve maximum comfort with your ZQuiet®.
Do you have to mold ZQuiet®?
Because of the universal sizing and soft material, no boiling or molding is required.
