Sleep Apnea & Snoring Solutions
Do you go to bed and wake up the next morning feeling exhausted? If you’re constantly fighting daytime sleepiness and fatigue, you may be living with an undetected sleep disorder. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common sleep disorder that can impact your ability to sleep comfortably throughout the night. If left untreated, sleep apnea can comprise your health and lead to serious repercussions. Seeking professional attention as soon as you notice symptoms can help our Red Bank dentist prescribe appropriate treatment to help alleviate your symptoms.
At Silent Sleep RX, Dr. MacFarlane combines his professional training with holistic techniques, providing a unique experience for our patients. We’re the only holistic practice in the area and are proud to offer an alternative approach.

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.
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder affecting millions of Americans every day. This common disease is caused by an obstruction in the airway that prevents proper airflow into the lungs. When the airway is blocked, sleep apnea sufferers, in an effort to breathe, begin making snoring or choking sounds. Oftentimes, it’s these noises that alert their sleep partner of an existing condition. Additionally, the inability to breathe properly 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, leading to daytime fatigue and sleepiness.
Our Red Bank holistic practice customizes acrylic oral appliances to help treat both sleep apnea and TMJ. While CPAP therapy is known as the gold standard of treatment for sleep apnea, Dr. MacFarlane offers an alternative to the CPAP mask. Benefits of using an oral appliance include their non-invasive nature, comfort, and small size. Unlike using a CPAP mask, oral appliances are easy to use and allow you maximum movement while you sleep. Discover our treatment alternatives to CPAP and how they can benefit you.
