What is a Zyppah mouthpiece used for?

Dec 14th 2020

This question can really be answered in one sentence. A Zyppah mouthpiece is used to help stop people from snoring. There all done. Time to read something else, right? Not really. Afterall, aren’t you curious about how it does that exactly? Snoring does seem like one of those facts of life. People snore, birds fly. It’s just the way of things. So, why would a mouthpiece made to help people stop snoring be such a big deal? Well, if you are curious (and we can’t blame you if you are), then read on to learn more about Zyppah.

What causes snoring?

Let’s start by defining the problem that Zyppah is trying to solve:snoring and all the problems that come with it. Snoring happens when you get a little too relaxed. If you have muscles that relax too much, specifically the muscles in the mouth and around the throat, they can block the airway. The tongue and jaw are both particularly guilty of this. It’s usually not so much that you can’t breathe entirely, but it is enough to make the air have to squeeze its way past. This is what makes that rattling sound we know as snoring. It’s the air vibrating the muscles and tissues that are blocking the airway as it tries to get down to your lungs.

But that’s not that big of a deal, is it? If you make a little bit of noise in your sleep, who is it hurting? Well, it could hurt many people, including yourself. But before we get into the health problems related to snoring, let’s talk about the emotional and interpersonal problems. Snoring can cause lack of sleep for both the snorer and those sleeping (or trying to sleep) near the snorer. This can lead to mood swings and just general crankiness. That is never easy to get along with.

So, snoring may put a strain on your relationships. But did you know that it can also put a strain on your health? Snoring, even just basic snoring that is not caused by sleep apnea, could increase your chances of bigger issues like heart disease, stroke, and hypertension. But these same issues and more can be caused by sleep apnea, which ahs snoring as one of its symptoms. Sleep apnea causes gaps in breathing during sleep. As we probably don’t even need to point out, not breathing isn’t good. A lack of oxygen getting to the brain can lead to all kinds of problems.

So, snoring is a much bigger issue than many people realize. It’s also incredibly common. Most people have snored at least a handful of times in their lives. For some it’s just when they’ve been sick or have had allergies so that there is congestion blocking the airway. In these instances, the snoring goes away once the congestion does. But for others, snoring is a chronic condition that could cause them all kinds of problems. So, how does Zyppah help avoid these issues?

How does Zyppah help?

There are many, many anti-snoring devices out there. From devices that correct your jaw to chin straps to anti-snoring pillows, they vary in shape, size, and efficiency. Zyppah is one of the best ones out there. Now, we are a little biased, but there is evidence to back it up. But before we talk about that, let’s talk about how Zyppah works.

Most snoring mouthpieces are called mandibular advancement devices (MADs). MADs work by moving your jaw forward so it can’t block the airway. While this does work well, it isn’t the most comfortable option. It can cause your teeth to shift position and may cause pain in your jaw. Zyppah is different. It focuses on the tongue instead of the jaw. Using our patented Z-FactorTM, the strap in the Zyppah acts almost like a seatbelt. It comfortably keeps your tongue in place. It does this without making you change the position of your jaw. That way you don’t have to worry about the health of your teeth.

So, how do we know that the Zyppah really works? We know because it has been tested. In 2019 the Zyppah was included in a study looking a number of different anti-snoring devices. Out of all of the participants in the study, 91% reported having snored less while using Zyppah. Meanwhile, there were no serious issues reported, as less than 1% reported having issues with the fit of Zyppah. Those are some pretty incredible results, but we can’t say that we’re surprised. Zyppah is pretty great.

Speaking of fit, it is good for you to know that many of the people who use our product report it being a little odd at first. Having something foreign like that in the mouth can cause a little bit of discomfort and even gagging. However, those who report this discomfort also tend to report that the discomfort goes away after a little while. Basically, you just need to get used to it. We recommend wearing it for an hour or so during the day to help you get used to it. If that doesn’t work for you then its okay. We have a 90-day guarantee. If 90 days after you buy your Zyppah you still don’t feel comfortable, then you can send it back for a full refund! So, in all reality, you run no risk giving Zyppah a try.
