Our dentists near you can help treat this disorder through sleep apnea dentistry in Morristown, but you need a proper diagnosis first. At Dental Care of Morristown, we are offering sleep apnea consultations in 07960.

What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a serious disorder that causes patients to experience breathing that starts and stops repeatedly while they are sleeping. Most sleep apnea conditions are considered obstructive. This is due to the way the muscles surrounding the tongue and throat are relaxed during sleep. The relaxation of these muscles can cause the tissue to block airflow to the patient’s lungs. Without proper diagnosis and treatment, obstructive sleep apnea can pose serious risks in compromising patients’ breathing.

Where Can I Find Sleep Apnea Treatment Near You?

Our dentists at Dental Care of Morristown can treat patients with this sleep disorder by designing a dental appliance to improve their sleep quality. In general, patients are fitted with a mandibular advancement device that resembles a mouth guard. This device is intended for regular and long-term use in reducing the breathing risks associated with sleep apnea.

If you require this appliance, we can have it designed for you and ensure its fitted properly for effective treatment. The results are improved sleep quality and a lowered risk of compromised breathing to enhance the patient’s health.

The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) which blocks the flow of air to your lungs. A few other symptoms include, but are not limited to:

  • Daytime drowsiness
  • Waking abruptly by gasping and/or choking
  • A partner’s disturbed rest
  • Excessive, unexplainable irritability and/or depression
  • Hypertension
  • Night sweats

Loud snoring is often one of the most complained about symptoms of sleep apnea. Nearly half of the American adult population suffer symptoms at some point in their lives with the majority of that population snoring on a regular basis. Sleep apnea is very common in men at any age and women who reach menopause age.

Dental Care of Morristown offers several treatment options to correct obstructive sleep apnea and beat snoring for good.

A few of the devices we’re excited to offer our patients in Morristown include dreamTAP™ and Silent Nite®.


The dreamTAP™ appliance has been designed with your ultimate comfort in mind. With the hardware on the exterior, the tongue has more space to relax easily. This design promotes a healthier, more restful night’s sleep for the wearer.

The removable dreamTAP™ device is entirely customizable so that you and your dentist at Dental Care of Morristown can ensure you are receiving the proper treatment for your obstructive sleep apnea.

Silent Nite®

Thin, flexible, and most importantly, comfortable, the Silent Nite sleeping appliance is designed to keep your lower jaw in a forward position. This position is adjustable with connectors that are attached to the upper and lower halves of the device.

A removable intraoral device, Silent Nite, is proven to be effective in correcting bite issues that have led to your obstructive sleep apnea.

Obstructive sleep apnea is not to be taken lightly, but wearing a sleep apnea device can save you from the troubles that this affliction causes.
