Custom Design

Whether you fine-tune your treatment position at home or work with your dentist, the unique design of the TAP allows multiple ways to achieve the most effective and comfortable results. With a single point of central adjustment, the TAP prevents uneven bilateral adjustment that may create an irregular bite and jaw discomfort.

 

With the fixed mechanical hinge and inseparable pivot point, all customTAP devices meet Medicare requirements to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
