myTAP design is based on the most effective devices on the market, TAP Custom. TAP Custom devices continue to be the market leader with over 32 independent peer-reviewed studies and are clinically proven to treat snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea.
STUDIES – SNORING SOLUTION – NO DENTAL OFFICE VISIT
The Thornton Adjustable Positioner, or TAP®, is the driving innovation behind TAP Sleep Care™. TAP devices are the most researched oral appliances on the market with more than 30 independent peer reviewed published studies and counting.
In fact, since 1997 all clinical trials involving the TAP have been conducted by independent investigators who do not have a financial interest in the device. Each study was funded by an outside source and not by Airway Management, the manufacturer.
SNORING SOLUTION – NO DENTAL OFFICE VISIT – HOW?
During these times, many people quite rightly would prefer to avoid medical and dental appointments – if possible. However, many people have problems with snoring and possibly other associated airway issues like obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
People are beginning to realise that poor sleep (both of the above cause sleep disruption) affect the immune system and ability to fight bacterial and viral diseases. Poor sleep also affects our ability to deal with outbreaks of disease like Covid-19.
While OSA can be screen and suspected by a trained dentist, at this time only a physician can acknowledge formal diagnosis. Heavy snoring, a proven cause of stroke.
Heavy snoring significantly increases the risk of carotid atherosclerosis, and the increase is independent of other risk factors, including measures of nocturnal hypoxia and obstructive sleep apnea severity. Considering the high prevalence of snoring in the community, these findings have substantial public health implications for the management of carotid atherosclerosis and the prevention of stroke.
During these difficult times, intervention with a physicians agreement until traditional testing is available is clearly medically beneficial. This does not denigrate a traditional approach, but may help save marriages and lives in the interim. These appliances have an intermediate life over a conventional appliance, but are relatively inexpensive compared to these (25%).
When normalcy returns we can find a dentist close to you to take over care for you, if your dentist is not trained or does not provide the care you require. Some dentists simply choose to restrict their practices away from this service.
If you feel that you need such a service now, please feel free to drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org.
