Appliance care

Dr. Matt here.  Oh, boy it is time to go to bed.  This is my favorite part of the day, lately.  When I sleep.  When I sleep.  I am now silent.  I say that twice because I haven’t always slept so deeply.  I do not have sleep apnea although I snore so loud that know one in the house gets quality sleep.  So, I searched all the dental media and found that I liked the design of the Thornton Adjustable Positioner (TAP).  My first was the TAP 1.  I am now on the TAP 3 Elite.  Anyway.  At bed time I brush and floss my teeth.  I then brush my TAP appliance and prepare it for a good nights sleep.  Once a week I put it into Polident cleanser and it gets especially clean.  I love that.  Okay moving forward here.  I brush the acrylic and metal and my anti-snoring appliance becomes so clean and fresh.  I say to my wife, “any last words?”, and put it into my oral cavity.  It is a huge mouth full but it positions my lower jaw forward which opens my airway.  I sleep deeply and silent.  I would suggest it to anyone but not everyone would be able to wear one.  If you have had a sleep study and know that you don’t have sleep apnea; you are a prime candidate.  Dr. Matt Nighty Night……….
