The Zyppah anti-snoring mouthpiece utilizes a unique tongue stabilizing feature. Like most stop snoring mouthpieces, the Zyppah works by moving the lower jaw forward. This process creates a larger airway which reduces air resistance, turbulence, and snoring.
What is Zyppah?
Zyppah was created by a dentist. It comes in several color combinations. It is cleared by the FDA for snoring. Like other snoring devices, Zyppah is ‘boil and bite’ device. By heating the oral device, the thermoplastic becomes compliant and allows for the teeth to create an impression. This mold fits the individual and is less likely to become displaced during sleep.
The Zyppah device is worn at night time. The name ‘Zyppah’ is ‘Happy Z’ spelled backwards.
Zyppah comes in one size. It fits most mouths because it is a boil and bite device. This mouth guard is not indicated for the treatment of sleep apnea. However, it can be used in conjunction with other treatment options.

Zyppah (zypah) is a stop snoring mouthpiece and anti-snoring mouth guard that works by moving the mandible forward and by reducing movement of the tongue. Visit the above links for reviews of Zyppah, cost of zyppah, and where to get the snoring device.
Zyppah for Sleep Apnea
While the ‘regular’ Zyppah is focused mostly on simple snoring, the Zyppah Pro line is focused on sleep apnea. Both devices bring the lower jaw forward relative to the upper jaw. Both lines also feature a tongue suppressing/retaining strap.
Zyppah has favorable reviews from the most visible review sites.
Snoring dental devices work by bringing the lower jaw forward in order to open the upper airway. This process increases the diameter of the airway, which reduces turbulence and snoring. Most stop snoring mouthpieces work in a similar manner.
How Zyppah is Different Than Other Snoring Devices
Zyppah has the tongue strap which aims to keep the tongue down, or from sliding to the back of the throat. The tongue plays a significant, but not exclusive, role in snoring. Zyppah devices do not articulate at the posterior joint – this means that when your mouth opens, the device does not open with you. It only works when your mouth is closed.
This brand of devices comes in a few different color combinations aimed at different populations. At the time of this publication, there was no white or clear version of the snoring device.
The Zyppah snoring mouthpiece is not adjustable. It stays fixed in one position.
Zyppah also comes in the Zyppah Pro version which has several models that resemble other familiar professionally made sleep apnea oral appliances. However, a key difference is that the Zyppah Pro devices contain the same tongue retaining strap the ‘regular’ Zyppah features.
