Sleep Apnea

Do you snore? Trouble sleeping? We can help.

We spend one-third of our lives sleeping—if we’re lucky. According to the National Institutes of Health, as many as 1 in 5 adults (about 18 million Americans) suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, with about 90% undiagnosed. While CPAP therapy is usually the first treatment method for sleep apnea, many patients are unable to find relief with the machine. If you are one of those patients, Dr. Gutierrez offers another option—the TAP® appliance, a mouthguard that positions your airway for healthy oxygen intake during sleep. Although it is rare, we treat pediatric sleep apnea, too. Get in touch today!



Oral Appliance Therapy with TAP

The TAP (Thornton Adjustable Positioner) Sleep Care Airway Management System keeps your airway open while you sleep. Its technology allows for optimal comfort and adjustment during wear.

Sleep apnea isn’t only
about snoring!

Symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea include:

  • Loud snoring and gasping for air during sleep
  • Insomnia and daytime sleepiness
  • Morning headaches and irritability

TAP & CPAP: Different Methods, Same Solution

We admit we’re biased—but the TAP appliance is more convenient and more affordable than a CPAP machine. Dr. Gutierrez can advise you on the best solution to treat your sleep apnea.
