Save Lives with TAP

Impact is pleased to offer the Thornton Adjustable Positioner (TAP®) 3 and TAP® Elite. Both appliances are approved for the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. 9 out of 10 patients wear the TAP all night, every night.

Oral appliances, like the TAP, shift the lower jaw forward, opening the airway. Many find this therapy more comfortable than alternative treatments like CPAP or surgery.

TAP is made of two custom inter-occlusal arches 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 slightly forward. Using the dial mechanism, the appliance is titratable, allowing for adjustments to the degree the jaw is held forward, this allows experiencing the optimum comfort and helps ensure patient compliance.

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