Do you suffer from sleep problems, snoring or frequently wake up during the night due to shortness of breath (sleep apnoea syndrome)? Headaches, daytime fatigue, lack of concentration, depressive moods, impotence, cardiac arrhythmias, high blood pressure, even strokes and heart attacks can be caused by sleep apnoea syndrome.
THE TAP SPLINT –
YOUR PEACEFUL-SLEEP SOLUTION
WHAT MAKES US SNORE?
Snoring is caused by the fact that everything in the throat becomes constricted due to the muscles slackening during sleep. The throat constricts and all of the surrounding tissues begin to vibrate. This vibration creates the snoring.
SLEEP APNOEA SYNDROME
Loud snoring indicates sleep apnoea syndrome. In this case, breathing stops due to the constriction of the airways and the sleeper wakes up because the brain recognises the situation and stops it with an imperceptible waking response. It can generally be said that sleep apnoea sufferers have a reduced life expectancy.
A quick and easy solution, without surgical procedures and lengthy treatments, is the TAP splint. Impressions of your upper and lower jaw are taken and then your customised plastic splint is created. You wear the splint while sleeping. The splint keeps your lower jaw in a forward position while you sleep, which keeps your airways clear and prevents snoring.
THE ADVANTAGES OF AN ANTI-SNORING SPLINT
You insert and remove the splint before and after sleeping. It is individually adjustable and ensures high comfort due to its vertical/lateral mobility. Healthy, relaxed breathing ensures peaceful sleep and improves your mental and physical wellbeing.
