Design and Material
Material: It is made from medical-grade copolymer material which ensures that it is both safe and durable.
Design: Zyppah is unique as it combines two approaches – it's a MAD and also has a tongue-retaining feature. Zyppah uses an elastic band to keep the tongue in place. This means it advances the lower jaw and simultaneously stabilizes the tongue, preventing it from falling back into the throat.
Material: Zyppah is crafted from a BPA-free and latex-free material, ensuring its safety for oral use.
Customization and Fit
Custom Fit: SnoreRx uses a "boil-and-bite" method which means users can custom mold the device to the unique shape of their teeth and mouth.
Adjustability: One of its standout features is its adjustability in 1mm increments, allowing for fine-tuning to achieve the best fit.
Custom Fit: Like SnoreRx, Zyppah also employs the "boil-and-bite" technique, ensuring a snug fit.
Adjustability: While it can be custom molded to fit, Zyppah doesn’t offer the same level of incremental adjustability as SnoreRx.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning is straightforward. Users can use toothpaste and a toothbrush or soak it in an over-the-counter cleaning solution.
Zyppah also recommends cleaning the device daily with a toothbrush and warm water. For a deeper clean, denture tablets or a specialized cleaning solution can be used.
With proper care, SnoreRx generally lasts 9 to 11 months.
The average lifespan of a Zyppah mouthpiece is about 6 to 8 months, slightly shorter than SnoreRx.
Price and Affordability
The prices for both devices can vary based on promotions and where they are purchased. However, users should check current prices and promotions before purchasing.
Comfort can be subjective and may vary from user to user. Some users find the dual-action of Zyppah (jaw advancement and tongue stabilization) more effective but a bit more intrusive. Others prefer the more singular approach of SnoreRx.
Both SnoreRx and Zyppah are reputable anti-snoring devices with their own unique features. The best choice ultimately depends on personal preference:
- For those seeking adjustability: SnoreRx's incremental adjustment might be more appealing.
- For those worried about tongue-based snoring: Zyppah's dual-action design can be beneficial.
