Snoring Solutions - TAP
Do you suffer from 2nd hand snoring?
Millions of people suffer from all degrees of sleep disordered breathing.
Sleeping with someone who snores may not only be annoying, but it may also be detrimental to your physical and emotional health. One Mayo Clinic Study found that the bed partners of snorers woke, at least partially, an average of 21 times an hour!
Snoring is a sign of a breathing problem. It occurs when the jaw opens and the tongue falls into the back of the throat, causing the airway to narrow and forcing air through the smaller opening. This creates sound vibrations in the throat known as snoring. Snoring can seriously affect your quality of life. It can be embarrassing and inconvenient, and can cause problems in your relationships. In some cases snoring is a sign for a more serious medical problem called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
You may ask yourself what is OSA? Well, OSA occurs when the muscles and tissue surrounding the throat relax causing the airway to completely collapse and block airflow into the lungs. This blockage cuts off the oxygen supply to the body & brain. The airway obstruction persists until the brain partially awakens the person. I know this is a little technical, but you did ask didn't you?
There is a simple solution to snoring and sleep apnea for both of you. If you are ready to get rid of your snoring or sleep apnea problem once and for all, the TAP is for you. The TAP is a simple, patient-friendly treatment solution for snoring and sleep apnea.
The TAP is a custom-made adjustable appliance that is worn while sleeping. The trays of the appliance, which look like teeth whitening trays, snap over the upper & lower teeth and hook together. This prevents the airway from collapsing allowing the airway to open, allowing for a restful nights sleep.
