RatingsThe rules of this comparison are simple. First, we rate the devices based on how well they satisfy the basic criteria for mandibular advancement device comparison, which include the fitting process, material quality, adjustability, longevity, price, and overall experience. Based on the individual scores they receive on each criterion, we calculate the total scores and determine the winner.
Zyppah uses the boil-and-bite technology, which means that it takes a couple of minutes to mold the device in accordance with the unique shape of your jaw and teeth. The process is simple, but it is important to strictly follow the fitting instructions. On the other hand, ZQuiet belongs to the one-size-fits-all category, meaning there is no fitting process at all. While this may be convenient, there is still a slight chance that the device won’t fit perfectly, although this hardly ever happens.
Zyppah is made of comfortable BPA-free thermoplastic material while ZQuiet is made of FDA-approved, medical-grade plastic. Therefore, they are both safe to use and the quality of the materials they are made of is incredibly high. In this respect, we are thoroughly satisfied with both devices.
Zyppah is readily adjustable and it is designed to allow you to easily achieve a perfect fit. However, the only slight flaw is that with this device, you cannot adjust jaw positioning. ZQuiet is not adjustable, but it does come in two sizes, which differ in the degree of jaw advancement.
A single Zyppah device can be used for 6 to 9 months, depending on a number of factors, including teeth grinding. ZQuiet does not have too long a lifespan and normally lasts for several months. However, it can last longer, as some users even report using it for up to 11 months before replacing it with a new device.
The price of ZQuiet is somewhat lower than the price of Zyppah. What is more, with ZQuiet, you get two devices at the price of one – one in size A and the other one in size B. Still, Zyppah is more durable, which is why it may turn out to be a better investment.
As far as the overall experience is concerned, the differences are truly slight. However, we are inclined to say that we were a bit more satisfied with Zyppah although it is important to point out that some snorers prefer ZQuiet. As we already said at the beginning of this ZQuiet vs. Zyppah comparison, you cannot make a mistake with either of these devices as they are both incredibly effective against snoring.
