Sleep Apnea & Snoring Solutions
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder affecting an estimate of 22 million Americans every day. Here at Silent Sleep RX, Dr. MacFarlane combines his decades of experience with holistic techniques to provide individualized care to all of our patients.
Our team will work with you and a sleep specialist to ensure we find the sleep apnea solution that’s right for you. We’re the only holistic practice in Red Bank and focus on using acrylic materials when crafting your sleep apnea solutions.
The Best Options
Our Red Bank dental practice uses acrylic material to create your personalized oral appliance, eliminating the need for metal appliances which can, in some cases, cause an allergic reaction. We are most concerned about your health and the safest options. Discover how we can help you manage your sleep apnea.
Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by a blockage in the airway that prevents proper airflow into the lungs. This interrupts a person’s breathing airway, resulting in snoring, or sometimes choking, as they try to take a breath. The inability to breathe causes the brain to jolt the person awake, and as a result, sleep apnea sufferers wake up periodically throughout the night in order to restore breathing.
Our Unique, Acrylic Oral Appliances
Although CPAP therapy is the most common treatment prescribed for sleep apnea, it isn’t always the best option due to low patient compliance. It’s estimated that as many as 83% of patients with obstructive sleep apnea only use their CPAP machine for 4 hours or less a night.
Dr. MacFarlane differentiates his dental practice from others in Red Bank by using an acrylic material to personalize your oral appliances. Rather than metal, which may cause sensitivity and an allergic reaction for some patients, acrylic is much more tolerable.
Our oral appliances are:
- Small, silent and non-invasive
- Easy to use and portable
- Custom-designed to provide maximum comfort
