Sleep Apnea

Protect your teeth and improve your sleep

Gaurds are used to protect teeth. To make a night guard, impressions and a bite registration will be taken. A night guard will be recommended when clenching and grinding are reported, or when wear is noticed. A night guard is worn to help spread out forces and protect teeth.

Why use a dental appliance for sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea causes abnormal breathing while a person is sleeping, impacting the amount of oxygen the body receives and reducing the quality of sleep. This can lead to serious health consequences and even death due to heart disease, high blood pressure, or stroke. Sleep apnea has been linked to a number of other medical conditions, including heart attacks, GERD, diabetes, eye disorders, erectile dysfunction and pregnancy complications for women.

TAP Sleep Care oral appliance compares to CPAP for apnea

OSA (obstructive sleep apnoea) is the most common form of apnea and is often treated with a CPAP device. In mild to moderate OSA, the TAP oral device has been proven to achieve results equivalent to or better than CPAP technology. It also has numerous advantages such as:

  • Comfortable, custom adjustable fit
  • Better for travel – small and doesn’t disturb others
  • No masks, straps, tubes or hoses involved
  • Durable – lasts up to 5 years
  • No need to replace hoses every 3 months
