RipSnore can help by reducing snoring and therefore can be used as an anti-snoring solution but worth double-checking how well does it compare to other similar snoring mouthpieces available in Australia.

Now, you don’t have to miss out on peaceful sleep due to the snoring problem because RipSnore may have a solution for you!
RipSnore provides a promising solution to the snoring problem for Australians. This Australian-based mouthpiece is now being sold in the USA, the UK, Australia, and Canada too. But how good is it in comparison to the many other mouthpieces we have reviewed?
What This Article Is All About?
Let’s begin with the RipSnore review so that you can learn more about the product.
Introduction to RipSnore
RipSnore (rest-in-peace snore) is an anti-snoring mouthpiece manufactured in Australia. It is gaining popularity among Australians.
The Australian Therapeutic Goods Association has approved it as a Class 1 medical device. The Conformite Europeenne has certified it for use for snoring as well.
RipSnore has been designed to reduce or stop snoring to help you get a good night’s sleep and wake up refreshed.
This transparent mouth device works like a Mandibular Advancement Splint Device that uses the “Mandibular Repositioning” technology to facilitate seamless airflow during your sleep. RipSnore does not let your jaw fall into the airway by repositioning the lower jaw forward.
Who’s Behind the RipSnore Device?
A middle-aged Australian, David Campbell, with a team of 10 people, saw the need for something that could provide relief from snoring without costing a fortune. Hence, RipSnore was founded to tackle the issue.
David Campbell’s company has distributions from suppliers and local representatives in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the USA for manufacturing high-quality and affordable RipSnore. The company also ensures to deliver your order as soon as possible.
The RipSnoreTM user can find instant relief from snoring at an incredibly low price compared to other devices in the market that can cost you hundreds of dollars.
David created the RipSnoreTM because he wanted to fix his snoring problem. He then developed the device utilizing his knowledge and skills with the help of suppliers from different countries and his family, who had a long history in the dental business. His wife, Jennifer, named the device.
Let’s explore something interesting about the RipSnore device:
How Does RipSnore Work?
Typically, you end up snoring when the tissues at the back of your throat vibrate. During sleep, the tissues vibrate and produce noise that disrupts your sleep and may also disturb your partner sleeping beside you.
RipSnore serves by holding your lower jaw slightly forward to allow the base of the tongue to move away from the soft palate and the back of the airway. This will help the soft palate located at the back of the mouth not to vibrate, making a clear passage for the air to ease breathing. The free flow of air will then silence snoring. Once, the air tract is clear of any kind of obstruction, you are less likely to snore during your sleep.
The patented technology of the RipSnore device can also be effective in reducing snoring associated with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). So, if you’re a sleep apnea patient, you can use RipSnore to alleviate the snoring problem.
However, patients with chronic sleep apnea are recommended to seek medical advice from their healthcare professional. You are not supposed to self-treat chronic health problems without any professional advice.
The unique mold of RipSnore perfectly fits your mouth and teeth. You can also use the device to treat teeth grinding without any discomfort.
RipSnore, with a success rate of 98%, ensures a constant flow of air in the airways because of the permanent gap in front of the mouthpiece.
Components of the Device
A single RipSnore package comes with:
- Two RipSnore mouthpieces
- One protective case
- Fitting spacer
- Step-by-step fitting instructions
RipSnore Mouthpieces: The mouthpieces are transparent devices manufactured from Dynaflex plastic, BPA-free material, approved by the FDA and certified by the Conformite Europeenne (C. E).
Dynaflex plastic is designed to fit all sizes and remolded more than five times. It can last for 12-18 months.
The RipSnore mouthpieces are transparent. You can get the anti-snore solution, and no one will know that you’re wearing it. This makes the design of RipSnore very subtle and less prominent.
Design: The RipSnore mouthpiece has been designed to not interfere with normal breathing because it is designed with two air holes at the front.
This perfectly designed mouthpiece can be used by the user even if they have any illness that interferes with normal breathing. For example, a person can use it even if they have deviated septum, nasal polyps, nasal congestion, and sinus problems. What could be more beneficial than this!
The two air holes have a divider in the middle of them that does not let air holes collapse while you’re asleep.
Moreover, the RipSnore mouthpiece is a little thicker than other anti-snoring devices. There are two reasons for designing the thicker mouthpiece instead of the thinner mouthpiece:
- Many people who snore also grind teeth (bruxism). According to numerous manufacturers, people who grind their teeth should not use thinner mouthpieces because of their weak structural integrity. Moreover, the lifespan of the mouthpiece could have been lowered with thinner material.
- As the thicker mouthpiece can withstand the jaw-pull for a long time, the thinner model could not do that.
The Protective Casing: As the name suggests, the protective casing comes with the RipSnore mouthpiece to protect the device after use. The user must always dry-clean the mouthpiece before placing it in the protective case. Dry cleaning the mouthpiece will prevent bacteria from building up in the device.
Let’s get to the final device component that serves a vital role – the white spacer.
The Fitting Spacer: The fitting spacer is used only during the boil-and-bite process. This component keeps the air holes open when in use.
In the absence of the fitting spacer, the air holes would collapse during the fitting process. The spacer is removed after fitting to allow breathing through the mouth.
You might have a question here: what is the fitting process? Let’s talk about this.
How to Fit RipSnore?
We mentioned earlier that the RipSnore device also comes with a step-by-step fitting guide. The fitting process is straightforward. You need the following things to fit the device:
- Ice cold water
- Two cups of boiling water
- A pair of tongs
- Two bowls or Pyrex dishes
- And a timer/stopwatch
Now it’s time to create a custom fit!
Here Are the Steps of the Fitting Process
- Boil two cups of water and transfer into the bowl.
- Now in another bowl, prepare ice-cold water (ice bath).
- After that, submerge the RipSnore into the boiled water for 30 seconds using a pair of tongs.
- Allow the device to cool after removing it from hot water. Make sure the device is cool enough to be placed into the mouth.
- After cooling the device, place the mouthpiece with its curved side up into your mouth and reposition the lower jaw in a forward position.
- Next, bite down the mouthpiece for 30 seconds. Make sure you bite down as firmly as possible. It is important to note that you should do all this by sucking the air out and using your fingers to shape the device on the gums.
- Right after 30 seconds, remove the mouthpiece and put in cold-ice water for another one minute.
- Remove the fitting space and check the fit.
The fitting guide of the RipSnore device says that you can re-execute the fitting process up to 5 times. However, you can re-attempt it only three times. After this, you have to use the second device.
It is crucial to insert the fitting spacer before starting the process. Otherwise, air holes will collapse, and normal breathing might be hindered.
How Effective Is RipSnore?
According to the company, RipSnore has an efficacy of 98%. It means that if 100 individuals have a snoring problem, RipSnore treats 98 individuals.
This 98% success rate of RipSnore is documented on the FAQs page of their website. The website explains that they surveyed 300 different customers with snoring problems in an independent study. That’s how they came up with this success rate.
RipSnore is as effective as many MADs (mandibular adjustment devices). RipSnore uses FDA-cleared plastic and registered as a Class 1 anti-snoring medical device in Australia.
The bottom line is, RipSnore is effective in 98% of the cases, and it is as effective as other MADs. What makes RipSnore unique is the white spacer that prevents air holes from being collapsed and keeps them wide open.
It is to be noted that the two air holes of RipSnore are entirely different from other anti-snoring mouthpieces. RipSnore’s breather holes are wide open, other devices have only one narrow passage, and some devices come with no breather holes at all. This makes RipSnore not only more functional but also way more efficient and easy to use.
After receiving RipSnore, you’ll get instructions about fitting the device in your mouth. You can achieve the perfect individual fit by the fitting process (boil-and-bite process).
Before you go to sleep, open your mouth, put RipSnore in your mouth, bite down it firmly, and close your jaws. This will significantly reduce snoring and help you and others around you sleep more peacefully than ever before because it fits snugly and comfortably in your mouth.
Only you will know that you’re wearing RipSnore because of its transparent appearance. In the morning, store RipSnore back in its protective casing after air drying it. If required, you can also rinse RipSnore with clean water.
What Are the Possible Side Effects of RipSnore?
While using RipSnore as a MAD for the first time, you may experience some temporary side effects, including:
- Slight pain in the jaws that subdues within few days.
- You may feel exhausted in the morning when you first use it. Sometimes, you can also experience restless nights.
- Extreme drooling during the first days of use.
If you feel your jaw soreness does not go away after few days of using RipSnore, you should consult your physician and stop using the device immediately.

- Is a mouth breather
