TAP® Appliances in Indianapolis
TAP® Devices Provide Snoring Relief for Our Indianapolis Patients
Research has found that people who snore are not as well-rested as those who don't. In many cases, snoring is related to a disorder known as sleep apnea, which also causes issues such as acid reflux or grinding of the teeth. If you need snoring treatment in Indianapolis, you need Post Road Family Dentistry. Dr. Tim Schafer is an experienced professional who has provided sleep apnea treatment to get many patients to stop snoring. The key is a system known as the Thornton Adjustable Positioner. The TAP® is a patented lower jaw device that keeps the airway open while you sleep, allowing it to treat a wide range of sleep disorders that affect breathing, cause snoring and other issues.
People Who Can Benefit From the Thornton Adjustable Positioner
The Thornton Adjustable Positioner may be right for you if you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, upper airway resistance, disordered breathing during sleep or general snoring. Each of these problems can cause not only you but also your bed partner to have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep, which can lead to a lack of productivity, mental fogginess and even other more serious health problems. Receiving a TAP® device requires diagnosis and treatment from a medical professional such as our own Tim Schafer. When you come in for a consultation, we will ask you about your sleeping habits and do a thorough examination before deciding on a course of treatment. In some cases, a sleep study may be required.
