SHARE:

The TAP 3 (Thornton Adjustable Positioner) is a mandibular advancement device for the treatment of sleep apnea. The appliance is made up of mandibular and maxillary components that are joined with a fixed mechanical hinge and inseparable pivot point during sleep. All TAP custom devices meet Medicare requirements to treat OSA (obstructive sleep apnea). The Tap 3 is titratable with a single point of central adjustment, which prevents uneven bilateral adjustment that may create an irregular bite and jaw discomfort. This adjustment can be made by the patient at home, thus empowering the patient to participate with the clinician in their treatment.
