Stop Snoring with a TAP® Snore Guard
We offer Snore Guards to help alleviate snoring habits, as well as Obstructive Sleep Apnea. The one we recommend is called The TAP® (Thornton Adjustable Positioner) which provides a powerful prescription for snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Based on the same principle as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the TAP® was designed to keep the airway open to allow for air to pass. A constricted or collapsed airway causes snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). This particular snore guard holds the lower jaw in a forward position, maintaining a clear airway to reduce snoring and improve breathing.
The TAP® Snore Guard consists of an upper and lower tray that fits over the teeth. The TAP® Snore Guard fits comfortably in the mouth and provides room for the tongue and allows the lips to close. A hook mechanism attached to the upper tray fits into a socket attached to the lower tray and positions the lower jaw forward, preventing the soft tissue of the throat from collapsing and obstructing the airway. An adjustment key allows you to simply adjust the device until a comfortable and effective position is achieved.
