Overall, I was pretty impressed with the product - though I will also say that, for the money, there are other devices on the market that might have a little bit more evidence behind them.
Introduction – Zyppah Snore Prevention System
The Zyppah RX is a hybrid snore prevention system that’s unique because it utilizes two different methods for helping to prevent snoring.
Not only does it advance the jaw, but it also helps to keep the tongue pulled forward during sleep – which makes it quite different from most other stop snoring devices on the market.
But does it work? Do customers like it? Is it worth the money?
Here’s what we found out over the course of our research when writing Zyppah review.
Zyppah comes with a few different features that aren’t quite as common as those that come with most stop snoring mouthpieces – so I was definitely interested in learning more about them.
Let’s take a look at some of the details and features that the Zyppah makes available.
- Tongue Stabilizer
First of all, the Zyppah comes with a tongue stabilizer that helps to ‘support the tongue’ and open the airway. This is definitely a unique product feature that not many stop snoring devices offer, so I was pretty excited to see it.
- Mouth Positioning
Of course, the Zyppah helps to keep your lower jaw advanced, thereby opening up the airway and preventing snoring.
- Product Guarantee
The Zyppah is also guaranteed to stop snoring, making it a very ‘safe’ product to spend your money on. Most snoring devices don’t guarantee this so openly and unconditionally, so this fact is a bit impressive.
- It comes with a travel case
The Zyppah also comes complete with a better night sleep guide and a travel case – making it easy to store and take with you without fear of it getting dirty or damaged.
This device is technically a mandibular advancement device, though it’s also unique in the way that it supports the tongue as well. Because of this, it’s really more of an ‘oral hybrid device’ that uses two different techniques to control snoring – which is definitely a good thing.
- Clinical Studies
While I didn’t see any specific clinical studies linked-to or cited on the website, Zyppah does say that their product is recommended by Doctors, and that it’s been ‘proven safe and effective’. I’m not sure where they were actually proven safe, as the exact studies don’t seem to be cited – but this is what Zyppah maintains on their website.
Is this product FDA cleared?
Yes, according to their website the Zyppah is an FDA cleared, Class 2 Medical device – although we’ve not seen any specific evidence, I don’t believe that they would get away with just saying this on their website.
This product sells for $89.95, and comes with free shipping and handling. It’s a little bit more expensive than some other devices in this price range, though to be fair, it does work to prevent snoring in two different ways – so that’s definitely something to take into account.
According to the BBB website, Zyppah’s physical address is as follows.
4535 W Sahara Ave STE 200,
Las Vegas, NV
Of course, other people seem to love the product – so it definitely seems like there are some different opinions about it.
How does the product work?
The Zyppah basically works in two different ways. First off, it advances the lower jaw forward to create more room in the airway. This, in turn, is supposed to decrease the amount of tissue vibration that occurs when the sleeping individual breathes – which is what causes snoring.
The Zyppah device also goes beyond this, however, by incorporating a tongue-stabilization band that helps to keep the tongue pulled forward during sleep.
The result is a device that literally uses two different techniques at the same time to prevent snoring.
What are actual customers saying?
Customers seem to like this product for the most part, though there have definitely been some complaints about it. On one hand, it’s a great idea for a product – but then, on the other hand, some people are saying that it just doesn’t really work comfortably or effectively.
What can you expect?
After the first night, you can probably expect your mouth to be a little bit sore. You might also not be able to use the device for the entire night, as it may take some getting used to. After you’ve used it for a few days, you’ll likely experience less discomfort and will be able to keep it in for the entire night without a problem. After a week, you should have a much better idea of what it’s actually like to use a stop snoring device like Zyppah on a longer-term basis.
It should probably be noted that if you don’t use it for at least a full week, then you might not really get the opportunity to experience it as it was designed to be experienced, as basically all stop snoring mouthpieces do require some getting-used-to. So if you don’t like it after the first night, you might not want to give up on it quite yet. You may end up getting used to it and liking it quite a bit.
Does this brand stack up against the competition?
This brand definitely stacks up with the competition, and here’s why. It actually offers two different techniques for snore prevention, which is more than most stop snoring devices can boast.
Not only does it hold the lower jaw forward, but it also keeps the tongue elevated as well – both of which have definitely been shown to help stop snoring in certain situations.
Key differences between this product and ‘typical’ solutions
The main difference between the Zyppah and other stop-snoring solutions is the fact that it stops snoring using two different techniques, while most devices really only focus on one.
Is a prescription or doctor involvement needed?
According to their website, you do need a prescription from a licensed physician or dentist before you can use the Zyppah. However, it seems that you can order the device directly from the company by filling out a special user agreement during the ordering process.
Pros and Cons
Here are the basic pros and cons that I discovered while researching this product.
- It uses two different methods to curb snoring
- It’s guaranteed to work or you can return it within 30 days
- It seems well made and well put together
- The website doesn’t really link to any conclusive studies, at least as far as I’ve seen
- Some customers really didn’t seem to have any luck with it, according to the reviews I read
- Some reports indicated that customer service wasn’t quite all that it should have been
In the end, I found myself pretty evenly considerate of the Zyppah Device. It does seem to be a great idea, and it seems well made – but even so, the price and the fact that there is just a bit less clinical information out there about it sort of balances these things out for me.
I would probably order this device if I was pretty sure that I needed my tongue held forward during sleep, as it does help to stop snoring in two different ways – and in doing so, establishes itself as a unique presence in the snoring device world.
Overall, I was pretty impressed with the product – though I will also say that, for the money, there are other devices on the market that might have a little bit more evidence behind them.
