Sleep Apnea Treatment

Snoring can disturb sleep for both the snorer and anyone trying to rest within earshot of the loud, repetitive noise. Fortunately, Dr. Lane offers a non-invasive night guard to stop snoring and treat obstructive sleep apnea, a potentially serious condition that’s often undiagnosed. Both snoring and sleep apnea can cause sleep deprivation, which significantly impacts the quality of life. If you snore or suspect that you have obstructive sleep apnea, effective treatment could improve your rest, your waking hours, and your health.

Call Dr. Jason Lane at our Wasilla, AK dental office today, at 907-393-2200, and schedule a consultation. He will talk with you about symptoms and explain how a night guard may resolve your sleep disturbances, so you (and your sleeping partner) can enjoy a better life.

What causes snoring?

When you breathe while asleep, soft tissues in your mouth and throat vibrate as air passes by them. These vibrations create sounds – snores. When you inhale and exhale, the snores pour forth. The more blockage soft tissues create, the harder it is to breath, and the louder the snores will be.

A grandmother in Brittan was recorded snoring at 111 decibels; that’s as loud as a jet engine! The average level is similar to the sound of a vacuum cleaner or chainsaw, which is about 60-70 decibels.

What is sleep apnea?

An apnea, or apneic episode, is a complete stoppage. Sleep apnea means total blockage of air, so that breathing stops. These periods of not breathing may last 10 seconds or longer, and they can happen hundreds of times every night. Lack of breath results in low blood-oxygen, which can cause serious side effects.

People with sleep apnea are known to suffer from:

  • Snoring
  • Fatigue
  • Morning headaches
  • Low concentration
  • Low energy
  • Poor memory or forgetfulness
  • Frustration and irritability
  • Obesity
  • Poor work performance
  • Impotence or low sex drive

How does a night guard help?

Night guards hold the mandible slightly forward, which opens the airway despite soft tissues. It seems so simple, and yet nightguards are highly effective. They offer a non-invasive, non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical, and affordable treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

People who dislike or cannot tolerate wearing a CPAP machine may respond quite well to wearing a night guard. Due to their compactness, night guards are extremely easy to store and travel with, and cleaning is a breeze.

Your First Step Toward Silent Nights

Don’t continue to live in a daytime fog, frustrated and tired. If you snore or present symptoms of sleep apnea, call Lane Family Dental in Wasilla, AK today at 907-393-2200 to reserve your appointment with Dr. Jason Lane. It’s time to reclaim your quality of life!

This is the second time I’ve gone here and I’m still blown away by the service and attention to detail. Prior to these guys, I used to dread dental visits. At this office, they go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and happy. We just had our first child three weeks ago and I had to bring him with. I hoped that he would sleep through, but of course he woke up as soon as I showed up for the appt. He was hungry, but instead of getting upset with sticking to time schedules, they encouraged me to make sure he ate enough and burped before we started. He was still fussy, so their receptionist (she is amazing) held him while their dental hygienist (she was also awesome) did my x-rays and then we tucked him in the chair with me during the cleaning. Love it! My teeth are super shiny clean and both this mamma and her baby are very satisfied customers. ^_^

I had so much built up anxiety from not going to regular dental check ups like I probably should have but the staff was phenomenal! They all made me feel comfortable, didn't judge me, and had great hospitality. The hygentist was sweet, and gentle. I have not experienced that in a long time. I'm actually excited to go back in a few months for another cleaning. From the time I walked in to the time I left I felt like I chose the right place to go.

I'm pretty self conscious about my teeth, when I went into Lane Family Dental I felt very comfortable, and welcomed as soon as I opened the door. The staff here are amazing! I also enjoy how customer based the office is with refreshments, massage chairs and Netflix. After 10 years of trying to find a good dentist, Dr. Lane is by far the best.

My husband and I recently found Lane Family Dental. We are both so pleased with their professionalism, modern equipment and outstanding care. The people at the front and Dr. Lane's dental assistant are bright, cheeful and professional as well. Living in Talkeetna we are so pleased they have two offices, one being in Willow which is quite convenient. Thank you Lane Family Dental for providing such great care to the Mat-Su Valley.

Great atmosphere, staff, and dentist. I had a bad experience the last time I went to the dentist so I was petrified to go in but this place was totally relieving. Me and my family will always be coming here with our dental needs.

The best dentist I’ve had in my 60 years. Absolutely impeccably clean facilities. New facilities. The latest techniques and strategies to provide excellent dental care. And most of all the least amount of pain I’ve ever felt at the dentist.

About a year or so ago I discovered Lane Dental. Due to circumstances in my life I hadn’t been to a dentist in a really long time. They were very caring and kind. Since then I’ve had some teeth removed and am currently having a partial made. They have been patiently working with me and my insurance. Asia has been wonderful to work with for my scheduling and Dr. lane has been so kind and gentle. His assistants have been a real pleasure also. Thank you to the entire staff ?

Fantastic customer service! Everybody there is very friendly and easy to talk to. They explained everything that was going on with my teeth, provided a plan to get them back in good shape, and cleaned em up real nice. It may have been a while since my last trip to a dentist, but I don't remember the visits being so relaxing.
