myTAPTM is a simple and comfortable treatment for snoring and sleep apnea. Construction and design are based on the TAP® splint, the market leader in oral anti-snoring appliances, having been tested in more than 32 independent peer reviewed studies on its clinical efficiency. The myTAPTM material has been specially developed for this application and can be softened in hot water. The correct temperature for adaptation in the mouth is reached when the color changes from white to transparent. If necessary, the appliance can be reheated and refitted without any problem after some days of trial wearing.
How myTAPTM works?
The myTAPTM splint maintains the lower jaw in a stable forward position, preventing the soft tissue in the palate and tongue cavity from narrowing the airway in the throat. Snoring and sleep apnea can be stopped. By means of the threaded adjustment mechanism, the clinician can adjust the optimal forward position of the lower jaw, usually being about 60% of the maximal advancement. This position can be continuously varied at any time if necessary.
In case control appointments clearly show that myTAPTM considerably reduced or even completely stopped snoring and sleep apnea, we recommend to prescribe an individually adjusted TAP® splint in cooperation with a sleep laboratory. myTAPTM
completely consists of plastic elements, risking to lose their strength and function after a long term use in the mouth due to water absorption and mechanical forces.
