TAP® (Thorton Adjustable Positioner)
The TAP® (Thornton Adjustable Positioner) is based on the same
principle as that of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The airway
must be opened to allow air to pass through the throat. A constricted
or collapsed airway causes snoring or Sleep Apnea. The TAP holds the
lower jaw in a forward position so that it does not fall open during
the night and cause the airway to collapse. The TAP maintains a clear
airway to reduce snoring and improve breathing.
TAP is comfortable and custom-made to prevent
any change in teeth position or mouth structure. They are
patient-adjustable, allowing for maximum comfort and effectiveness.
