Anti-Snoring Tap III appliance
Case 1 - David
Having suffered from sleep apnea for many years, this gentleman wanted a solution to improve his sleep and reduce snoring. He had tried a CPAP but found it cumbersome and loud at night. Dr. Fitzgerald constructed a TAP III appliance seen below to hold the lower jaw forward at night. Sleep studies showed a 80% reduction in his apnea episodes and he reported his wife found he was snoring much less.
