Snoring and Sleep Apnea

The TAP III appliance (Thorton Adjustable Positioner) from Glidewell Dental Laboratories provides a powerful prescription to reduce snoring and sleep apnea. Based on the same principle as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the TAP was designed to keep the airway of the throat open to allow air to pass. A constricted or collapsed airway causes snoring or sleep apnea.           


The TAP III is an adjustable intraoral appliance that holds the jaw forward, maintaining a clear airway to reduce the snoring and improve breathing. The TAP appliance is less obtrusive than a CPAP appliance that is positioned on the outside of the face.
