I slept for 7 hours last night and the night before, and I’m ecstatic about it! I hope that means I have found the right amount of gap on the TAP to take care of the Sleep Apnea. I haven’t moved the bottom jaw in front of my upper teeth by much, but it may be enough for me, since it took quite a bit to get my bottom teeth lined up with the top ones to begin with, thanks to my natural overbite.
This appliance is fairly easy to get used to, far more so than any of the CPAP masks I tried. I can turn on my side without a problem, and I don’t feel the least bit claustrophobic with it in place. It does require some rather vigorous jaw exercises each morning, to be sure the bottom teeth move back into their normal position. That leaves my right jaw a little sore for awhile, but it’s not bad and it goes away by the time I eat breakfast.
