Dr. Renehan not only specializes in Sleep Apnea, but also has training to back it up. Dr. Renehan is not only a dentist, he is a physician, who trained at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic. Dr. Renehan can help determine the appropriate treatment for Sleep Apnea. The first step is for you to get a sleep study. If you are diagnosed with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, a dreamTap Sleep device may be for you.
The Thorton Adjustable Positioner (TAP) is based on the same principle as CPR. The airway must be open to allow air to pass through the throat. A constricted or collapsed airway causes snoring or sleep apnea. The 2-piece device is worn in the mouth at night and holds the lower jaw in a forward position so that it does not fall back and cause the airway to collapse. The dreamTaP maintains a clear airway to reduce snoring and improve breathing.
The dream TAP is custom made for your mouth, comfortable and patient friendly. It is patient adjustable to allow for maximum comfort and effectiveness. It is portable and does not require a power source. This device may eliminate the need for surgery, medications or other cumbersome therapy, such as a C-Pap machine.
