Sleep apnea is a serious health condition that affects millions of people, but is treatable at Rotem Dental Care in Toms River.

People with sleep apnea stop breathing during the night. The stoppage can last anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or more. In many cases, it happens repeatedly through the night.
