So, what is TAP? The Thornton Adjustable Positioner, or TAP, is a patented mandibular advancement device specifically engineered for keeping the airway open during sleep. The protrusive mechanism is a single midline tension device that is easily adjusted by the patient while in the mouth.
With its ease of adjustability, unlimited protrusive range of motion, gradual titration, and patient involvement in their therapy, the TAP has shown in numerous independent peer-reviewed studies to be superior and more effective than any other appliance on the market. In fact, it’s the only device proven to be equivalent to CPAP.
