TAP®3 for Mild to Moderate Sleep Apnea and Snoring

The Thornton Adjustable Positioner® (TAP®) is an oral appliance (kind of like an athletic mouth guard) that is worn while sleeping to help reduce snoring or treat sleep apnea.

By using advanced technology the TAP® reduces sleep apnea without the need for surgery, medications, or other therapies that are often inconvenient.

Treat Sleep Apnea and Snoring Without a CPAP

By holding the mandible forward during sleep, the TAP® medical device can treat troubled breathing and alleviate snoring and sleep apnea. The forward position of the mandible prevents the tongue and soft tissue of the throat from blocking the airway.

The TAP® is comprised of 2 parts, an upper and lower tray. The upper tray has a socket that attaches to the lower tray, moving the lower jaw forward. This movement prevents the soft tissue in the throat from blocking the airway. An adjustment key allows you to adjust the movement of the lower jaw for maximum effectiveness and comfort.

Designed for Maximum Effectiveness and Comfort

The TAP® is designed to let you be actively involved in your own treatment. If you begin to snore again after a few weeks of treatment, or have another apneic episode, you can adjust the TAP® yourself.

This not only saves you money and time, it also makes the treatment more effective and comfortable than if adjustments were only made on dental visits.
