Sleep Apnea Treatment

Waking up in the morning with a headache is not a healthy way to begin your day. You may not be aware, but this could mean you suffer from sleep apnea. Patients who have sleep apnea often wake feeling exhausted. This is the body’s response to the lack of sleep from an abnormal sleep pattern.

Sleep apnea patients suffer from constantly waking up during the night due to pauses in breathing. The pauses can last from just a few seconds to minutes. Bed partners often wake up the sleep apnea patient because they wait for a breath that seems like it will never come. The pauses interfere with your sleep and they cause the brain to receive less oxygen, which in turn causes headaches.

If you suffer from sleep apnea you are not getting the restorative sleep you need to be fully functional during the day. Instead, you are consistently being moved into the lighter sleep cycle. This happens throughout the night leaving you exhausted and unrested in the morning. Fortunately, there are measures that can be taken to help you sleep better.

At Lane Family Dental, we can diagnose the problem and create a treatment plan that will have you sleeping restfully in no time. Getting a correct diagnosis and proper treatment will restore the energy that you miss.

Sleep apnea patients often snore during sleep. This also affects your sleep partner. Snoring can keep other people awake or make it difficult for them to stay asleep. We can help you stop snoring and sleep better. Through the use of a night guard mouth appliance, your snoring will cease and you and your partner can finally have a restful night’s sleep.

The night guard holds the jaw in a position that prevents the collapse of the soft palate at the back of the mouth. While sleeping your muscles relax, and for those with sleep apnea and snoring problems, the muscles at the back of the mouth relax, allowing the tissues of the soft palate to collapse and cause snoring.

Contact Lane Family Dental if you suffer from sleep apnea or snoring. Let Dr. Lane diagnose your problem and create a plan to get you sleeping peacefully again.

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 🤗

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.

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.

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.

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.
