dreamTAP® Technical Course


The TAP® -Splint has been developped by the American dentist Dr. Keith Thornton and today it is regarded as the No. 1 anti-snoring splint in the USA. The guiding lines of the American and the German Society of Sleep Medicine (AADSM/DGSM) recommend intraoral appliances for treatment of snoring and mild forms of sleep apnoea. Numerous scientific studies have verified the effectiveness of special splints for the protrusion of the lower jaw. This technical course provides the knowledge for the fabrication of the dreamTAP® -Splint and is offered primarily for dental technicians.
