The Thornton Adjustable Positioner® (TAP®) is a simple, patient-friendly treatment solution for snoring and sleep apnea. The TAP 3 Score Device holds the lower jaw in a forward position so that it does not fall open during the night and cause the airway to collapse. It maintains a clear airway to reduce snoring and improve breathing.
The unique design allows the patient to fine-tune his/her treatment at home and work with the clinician to achieve the best results. Patients are empowered to manage the degree of lower jaw protrusion over as many nights as it takes to achieve the optimal treatment position. The TAP 3 Score Device has a single point of central adjustment, which prevents uneven bilateral adjustment that can create an irregular bite and discomfort.
TheTAP 3 Score Device has over a 95% success rate. It is the key to a snore-free, restful night of sleep. The TAP 3 Score Device also treats sleep apnea without the need for surgery, a mask, or medication. The TAP 3 Score Device is recognized as the market leader in oral appliances for snoring and sleep apnea and is currently prescribed by over 7,000 dentists worldwide to treat snoring and sleep apnea. In addition, it is the most researched oral appliances on the market with over 30 independent peer reviewed published studies.
