Say ‘Good Bye’ To Sleep Apnea

And ‘Hello’ To A Good Night’s Sleep!

Sick Of Not Getting a Good Night’s Sleep?

Are you tired of you (or your partner’s) restless sleeping or snoring? A common condition, sleep apnea occurs when a person’s breathing is disrupted during sleep. Men, overweight people and people over 40 are at greater risk for sleep apnea.

What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea affects breathing during sleep by blocking the airways or compressing the tongue to the point where abnormal breathing will wake the individual numerous times throughout the night. Not only is waking up throughout the night frustrating—for both the individual and their partner—but sleep apnea can also impair alertness when awake and adversely affects blood pressure and cause memory loss, hypertension, stroke or heart failure, so it needs to be taken seriously.

A Highly Effective Solution for Sleep Apnea

Our doctors can design and expertly implement a sleep apnea mouthpiece device that can help you get a restful night’s sleep and stop snoring. One device that many of our sleep-deprived patients have benefited from is the Thornton Adjustable Positioner 3 (TAP®3) – a mandibular device designed for the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Developed with advanced dental technology, the TAP 3 improves breathing and eliminates snoring in over 95% of all patients. The TAP 3 reduces the impact of associated health risks without the need for surgery, CPAP or medication. Based on the same principle as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the TAP 3 was designed to keep the airway open to allow for air to pass. The TAP 3 holds the lower jaw in a forward position so that it does not shift nor fall open during the night. This prevents the soft tissue of the throat from collapsing and obstructing the airway to reduce snoring and improve breathing. The TAP is the only mandibular device that can be adjusted by the patient while in the mouth. Most patients experience relief the first night they wear their TAP. Nine in ten patients wear the device all night, making the TAP a highly effective solution.
