The TAP 3 for Sleep Apnea at Galliano Family Dentistry

TAP 3 Sleep Apnea Baton Rouge

Dr. Galliano and his team at Galliano Family Dentistry in Baton Rouge are more than happy to help those suffering from obstructive sleep apnea find relief from their symptoms. Obstructive sleep apnea is common, and happens when a person’s airway collapses completely during sleep, blocking the airflow to the lungs and making breathing incredibly difficult for the person afflicted. When the individual tries to breathe harder, the airway seals even tighter, continuing until the brain actually partially awakens the person. Once awake, she or he will close their jaw and return the tongue and jaw to the normal position. This whole cycle can happen 50 times or more per hour throughout the entirety of the night!

Both the constant awakenings and the deprivation from oxygen throughout the night can cause severe health problems for the individual over time. There are also a wealth of daily problems that sleep apnea sufferers may experience as well, which includes extreme fatigue, headache, irritability, mood swings, excessive daytime sleepiness, and weight gain.

What is Tap 3?

The TAP 3 (Thornton Adjustable Positioner), available at Galliano Family Dentistry, is an oral appliance designed to help those suffering from sleep apnea tackle their symptoms and experience a quality nights sleep. This innovative device is a custom-made, two-part appliance that rests firmly over both the lower and upper teeth, similar to a retainer. The TAP 3 works to hold the jaw forward, so that the tongue and soft tissues of the throat do not collapse, causing sleep apnea and snoring. The TAP 3 does not restrict you while you are sleeping, setting it apart from other devices that aim to achieve the same goal. You can even adjust the degree that the jaw is held forward with the TAP 3, for greater overall effectiveness. The TAP serves to maintain a clear, open airway, and help with breathing throughout the sleep cycle.
