TAP® Appliance

Does snoring or sleep apnea keep you up at night? The Thornton Adjustable Positioner (TAP) might be your key to a snore-free, restful night of sleep. It treats sleep-disordered breathing without the need for surgery, a CPAP mask, or medication, and is recommended for use by the American Association of Sleep Medicine (AASM).

The TAP appliance is non-invasive and fully adjustable to create the jaw position that best treats your symptoms. The device holds your lower jaw in a forward position so it does not fall open during the night and allow the airway to collapse. The TAP is clinically proven to treat high upper airway resistance syndrome as well as all levels of obstructive sleep apnea, including severe sleep apnea.

Why choose the TAP?

  • Easy to use
  • Adjustable while in the mouth
  • Patient can adjust at home and achieve maximum treatment results from night to night
  • Smaller and less bulky than other oral appliances
  • Convenient for travel

“After several horrific experiences with different dentists, I went in search for something better. "Pain free dentistry" is the term I associate with Dr Chaiken. His patience, consideration and attention to detail have made this process as painfree as is could be. In addition, every member of his staff is equally supportive and friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Chaiken!” - Jacque M. “I walked into your ofiice with a mouth of pain and infection. I was advised that I could have died from the infection ... with medication and oral surgery I was started on the road to rebuilding my mouth. I am happy to say I’m alive because of the attention Dr. Paul Chaiken gave to me. I have a new mouth and am now able to eat everything. Thanks, Dr. Chaiken” - Paul G. “I have EXTREME dentophobia; I should say I used to have it. Paul’s exceptional and considerate care has allowed me to relax and enjoy my visits to the dentist. He replaced a poorly designed bridge and my entire experience was easy, painless, and brilliant ... he employs a very thoughtful, very considerate staff ... more importantly, they are always in a good mood. As far as I am concerned, Paul’s my dentist for life.” - Chris G.
