 dreamTAP Appliance

Effectively Treats Snoring and Sleep Apnea

The ultra comfortable dreamTAP appliance is designed with hardware on its exterior, offering greater tongue space with no obstructions. With more tongue space, patients experience greater comfort and a healthier sleep.

  • Its single point of midline adjustment prevents uneven bilateral adjustment that may create an irregular bite and jaw discomfort. Stronger than surgical stainless steel, the hardware is made from nickel-free cobalt-chromium, removing the risk of an allergic reaction.

  • dreamTAP comes in three hook sizes for greater range of adjustment, is corrosion resistant, and utilizes custom-formed soft liners for superior retention.

Why Choose the TAP?

  TAP can be adjusted while in the mouth, either by the patient or by another person, such as a sleep technician or doctor. Adjustment does not require an office visit.

  The TAP has an adjustment mechanism that advances the mandible 0.25 mm with each turn of the key. The patient can vary the position precisely by counting the turns. This allows both the dentist and the patient to confidently maintain the proper treatment position and yet allows them to make changes depending on the patient's symptoms.

  TAP is clinically proven to treat high upper airway resistance syndrome as well as all levels of obstructive sleep apnea, including severe sleep apnea.

  This appliance can pull the lower jaw farther forward than other appliances, increasing the chances that the patient will have treatment success.

  TAP is the only appliance that has an attachment for a CPAP mask, offering the benefits of both mandibular advancement and positive pressure therapies.

Note:  dreamTAP can only be sold by Great Lakes to doctors in the United States.

 myTAP Appliance Precision Fit

myTAP™ is a precision-fit oral appliance intended to reduce or alleviate nighttime snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

When reheated, it will return to the original tray shape, and then be re-molded to the teeth.
