PN Oral Appliances Matrix TAP
W Oral Appliances Matrix www.tapintosleep.com
H Oral Appliances Matrix E0486codeverifiedbyMedicare, the TAP stabilizes the lower jaw in the appropriate protrusive position, preventing airway collapse and tongue blockage while keeping the jaw closed during sleep. The TAP has a full range of adjustment beyond maximum protrusion on into maximum passive protrusion.
F Oral Appliances Matrix The TAP is fabricated in a licensed dental laboratory and fitted by a clinican. The upper and lower trays are adjusted for retention and fit. Inition protrusion is set during the fitting process and can be easily modified. Posterior stops may be added for comfort if necessary.
A Oral Appliances Matrix djustement may be made by the patient with the TAP in the mouth. An anterior dial with one point of adjustment prevents unequal torque. The clinician teaches a home titration schedule, which engages the patient in the therapy process. The TAP may be easily adjusted in the sleep lab by the sleep tech during a sleep study.
M Oral Appliances Matrix Hardware material is medical grade SS. The trays have two hard outer layers of a durable polymer and the inner lining is one of two types designated by the clinican. 1. Triple Laminate(TL) is the most popular, using DuraSoft, which enables retention by comfortably gripping the teeth. 2.ThermAcryl, which softens when heated to allow “snapping” andreshaping for pa- tients who have dental work.

PN Oral Appliances Matrix TAP PAP
W Oral Appliances Matrix www.tapintosleep.com
H Oral Appliances Matrix TAP PAP combines either a custom or noncustom strapless CPAP mask with the TAP (E0486 code verified by Medicare) or TAP 3 series appliance (E0486 code verified by Medicare). The two device types are connected via a kit provided by AMI. TAP PAP stabilizes the jaw and airway to improve delivery of PAP. Typically, patients whose disease has progressed and need more treatment than OAT alone are very good candidates for TAP PAP.
F Oral Appliances Matrix TAPPAP(CM)Custom: thedentist uses a custom impression kit supplied by AMI and then takes afacial impres- sion. The custom mask is fabricated by AMI. The dentist connects the mask to the TAP and fits the patient. TAP PAP (CS) Chairside: the dentist fits the patient using a kit supplied by AMI. The kit contains 3 sizes of nasal pillows and all necessary hardware.
A Oral Appliances Matrix Before attaching the mask, the dentist will set the TAP into a fixed protrusive position, which also serves as an anchor to the mask. The dentist will adjust the mask and instruct the patient. The mask is strapless and does not leak.
M Oral Appliances Matrix See materials for TAP. TAP PAP CM: Hard acrylic plastic with a silicone border. TAP PAP CS: Nasal pillows are medical grade silicone (see Fisher & Paykel Opus pillow composition).
