SOLUTION 1: (Advances the Lower Jaw) ZYPPAH uses mandibular repositioning to partially open the airway. This is the common feature in almost every snoring appliance sold. By advancing the lower jaw forward from its normal position during sleep, you can improve the airflow and reduce the snoring sound. Until the invention of a Hybrid Oral Appliance, the only means of treating snoring with an oral device was mandibular advancement. The challenge Dr. Greenburg encountered with normal oral appliances were the limits associated with advancing the lower jaw.
SOLUTION 2: (Stabilizes the Tongue) ZYPPAH is the only oral appliance that incorporates a patent-pending band to open the airway. The band specifically addresses the tongue and prevents it from blocking the airway. The tongue, which is a muscle, relaxes during sleep. The ZYPPAH elastic stabilizes the tongue. When combined with mandibular advancement, these two solutions create a highly effective treatment to eliminate snoring. The tongue relaxing is the root cause of snoring. It's why when you sleep on your back the snoring is usually louder. Gravity is causing the tongue to fall back. It's also why you are elbowed by your bed partner and asked to "roll over" and sleep on your side.
