instant-fit oral appliance that relieves snoring and quiets the sound the first night guaranteed. this dentist-designed innovation smartly, safely, and snugly fits in seconds to comfortably treat snoring in any sleep position -- side, back, or stomach. zquiet is a high-performance medical device regulated by the fda, and is made with soft, medical-grade material. it flexes with you, allowing you to sleep with your mouth open or closed, easily breathe through your nose or mouth peacefully through the night. stay tuned, and you'll discover exactly what causes restricted breathing and the snoring sound. see for yourself what's going on inside the airway when snoring happens and how simple real relief for you can be. meet the team behind this affordable innovation that is changing lives. listen to firsthand accounts from some of the over 500,000 zquiet customers who were looking for better sleep, better relationships, more energy throughout the entire day, and found it with zquiet. >> it sounds silly to say that a little product that you just pop
in your mouth can have a big impact on your quality of life, but it really has. if you sleep better, it seems everything in life is better. >> yes, it does impact your relationship. it impacts your ability to deal with life, your ability to deal with your kids. everything gets exponentially better. >> having the zquiet makes everybody much happier the next day. >> hi. i'm dave nemeth. for years, you've seen me talk about the value of a great night's sleep and the importance of a comfortable sleep. let's say you have the comfort of a great bed yet, still, you find your sleep disrupted by snoring -- snoring from you or the person next to you. lots of fun has been made of snoring. people even call it sawing logs. but the truth is if you live with it, it's not that much fun, is it? men snore, and women snore, too. in fact, 40% of adults snore frequently, many every night -- regular, old-fashioned snoring from the back of the throat.
it's the kind of snoring that can limit your quality of sleep, the kind that keeps the person on the pillow next to awake, the kind that causes kicking and nudging, the kind that brings social embarrassment and grogginess the next day. but there is help, and i know because i've experienced the answer. now, before we get there, let's take a look at what really causes the snoring sound. most people snore due to the natural relaxation in the jaw and surrounding tissue when laying down and falling asleep. the jaw relaxes, causing it and the tongue to fall back. and this, in turn, causes narrowing of the airway at the back of the throat. our lungs draw air in and out over the collapsed tissue, causing vibration, which makes the sound. it can happen to anyone, male or female. the most obvious proven way to relieve snoring is to prevent the jaw from falling back in the first place. but how? with zquiet -- small, lightweight, easy to fit in seconds. zquiet is a flexible mouthpiece
that's hinged to move with you. it comfortably allows you to sleep while preventing your jaw from slipping back. thus, it can alleviate the collapse of the soft tissue and relieve snoring. just slip it in before you nod off. to learn more about how zquiet can work to combat snoring, we sat down with zquiet's medical advisor, dr. joshua light. a noted researcher, dr. light is a practicing ear, nose, and throat specialist in southern florida. >> patients who come in with snoring want a solution. they want a solution that's not gonna cost a lot of money or cause them a lot of pain. and when i found the zquiet, i found an opportunity to treat these patients right away and effectively. a lot of times, they'll come in asking me to perform surgery on them, and i'm a surgeon. i like doing surgery. but i tell them honestly the most consistent, reliable results don't necessarily come from a surgical intervention. in order to stabilize the jaw so that it doesn't collapse back
and allow the tongue to fall back into the throat, oral appliances have been developed that move the jaw forward gently. these appliances have typically been designed and created by dentists. now, ultimately, snoring has nothing to do with your teeth. it's just that we use the teeth to help stabilize the jaw by bringing it forward. i like the zquiet because it works. it's made of a soft, comfortable material, and has this open-tray design. that allows it to conform to just about any mouth, and it brings the lower jaw forward gently. that stabilizes the soft tissues and the tongue, and that opens up the airway. when you do that, it relieves the snoring. >> with more than 500,000 units sold, zquiet gets constant feedback from customers who are not only satisfied but thrilled with how this product has changed their lives. we contacted customers randomly to find out about their
