TAP 3 & TAP Elite

  • Sleep Apnea is the temporary cessation of breathing during sleep. Typically indicated by snoring, often times sufferers will awake gasping for breath. Apnea-related disturbances occur repeatedly, resulting in a restless sleep and daytime drowsiness. The disease can cause serious health issues including increased blood pressure and the restriction of oxygen to the brain and blood stream.

    How it Works:

    TAP® is made of two custom inter-occlusal parts that fit over the mandible and the maxilla. The upper portion of the device hooks into the lower portion, enabling the mandible to be pulled forward. Using a dial mechanism, the appliance is titratable allowing adjustment to determine the degree to which the jaw is held forward. By holding the mandible forward, the TAP maintains a clear airway to reduce snoring and improve breathing.

    New TAP® Elite allows more lateral movement, improving patient comfort and compliance.
