On the face of it, the Zyppah is a snoring mouthpiece or mouth guard that might actually work. I gave it a trial run because I thought it sounded pretty good and wanted to see how it would work for me.
The Zyppah should work. After all, it forces the jaw forward and there’s even a tongue restraining strap to make extra sure that my tongue doesn’t fall back into my throat obstructing my breathing, causing me to snore and aggravating my snoring-related sleep apnea.
So I figured it had to be worth the cost to try and decided to buy my own Zyppah and to share my Zyppah review with you once I was done. Seriously, I wanted to stop snoring and this device looked like an anti-snoring device well worth trying.
Here’s what I found:
Pros: I absolutely loved the boil and bite technology. After I’d boiled and bitten, it felt like I was getting a pretty good fit. Other Zyppah reviews say that it’s designed by a dentist and I can believe that. Luckily I don’t have false teeth or capped teeth, because the product specifically warns against trying to use it in those circumstances.
Come bed-time, I put it in my mouth and secured my tongue. It felt a bit yuk, but I decided to give it a try. Closed eyes. Tried to sleep. Couldn’t sleep. Thought maybe I need to get used to it and eventually dropped off. Didn’t sleep well. I woke up with a sore jaw and a nasty taste in my mouth. I had drooled all over my pillow. Thank goodness I sleep with my back to my partner. Decided to keep trying.
Day two: tried again. Still not comfortable. Struggled to sleep. My tongue felt like it was in a strait jacket. Slept, but didn’t sleep very well. On the plus side, I didn’t snore.
To cut a long story short, I really tried with this device. I kept trying for two weeks, but my sleep was poor, I drooled all night and I woke up feeling tenderness around the jaw. Mind you, I didn’t snore. With my tongue strapped down like a mental patient to a bed it was frankly impossible.
It works, but I don’t sleep well with this monster in my mouth. I don’t like it. If anything else works, I’ll go for that instead.
I will say that all of this worked out well in the end. After many attempts and mixed results I finally found the anti-snore system that worked for me.
