What is TAP Therapy™?
TAP Therapy™ is a comprehensive, stepped approach of treatment for snoring and sleep apnea. TAP Therapy integrates both dental and medical technology to achieve maximum results.

Step One: TAP® oral appliance
TAP Therapy™ begins with a Thornton Adjustable Positioner® (TAP®). Patients are fitted with a TAP® - a custom, fully adjustable, oral appliance. This device holds the jaw forward and prevents the airway from collapsing. (A collapsed airway cuts off airflow and causes snoring and the gasping sounds associated with sleep apnea.) Most patients, including those with severe sleep apnea, see results the first night of wearing their
TAP oral appliance!

Step Two: Combination therapy with TAP® oral appliance and CPAP
When a patient’s sleep apnea is so severe that he or she needs more to manage the condition, the TAP® can be adapted to hold a custom CPAP mask. Combination therapy of a TAP and CPAP provides the benefits of both mandibular advancement (a stabilized, open airway) and positive pressure. This unique combination therapy eliminates the need for head straps, reduces feelings of claustrophobia, creates a perfect seal between the mask and the face, and requires less air pressure than CPAP therapy alone. The TAP® is the only oral appliance with an attachment for CPAP.
