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……….
