Sleep soundly with dental snoring solutions in SacramentoPosted by Kosta J. Adams, DDS, MAGD, FICOI / Kristen J. Adams - Dentist Sacramento
Insomnia vs. Sleep ApneaOne of the first steps to improving your lifestyle is determining the cause of your symptoms. Insomnia is a common sleep disorder that affects your ability to fall or stay asleep. Sleep apnea is a condition in which your airway becomes blocked and temporarily stops your breathing. While the two conditions are often linked, for the purpose of this article, we will be discussing treatment for sleep apnea.
During a sleep apnea episode, the soft tissue in the back of the mouth collapses, closing off the airway and rendering you temporarily unable to breathe. The most common symptoms of sleep apnea are:
- Gasping for air
- Feeling like you are choking
- Frequent waking, hundreds of times per night
Dental Snoring SolutionsIf you were diagnosed with sleep apnea from your primary care physician, an ENT, or a sleep medicine physician, you may have been recommended CPAP therapy. CPAP, continuous positive airway pressure machines, are often the first course of treatment for sleep apnea. The machine can be bothersome and loud, causing a lot of patients to quit treatment.
As an alternative to CPAP machines, we offer oral appliance therapy. At Adams Dental Associates in Sacramento, we have found that many patients love the custom-made orthotic for the following reasons:
- Improved comfort
- Extremely effective
- Small and easy to travel with
The importance of treating sleep disordersSleep disorders can have a profoundly negative impact on health and quality of life. Luckily, there are treatment options that are comfortable and easy to use. Many patients are shocked to find that a simple appliance is all it takes to improve their rest and their partner’s.

Woke up with a horribly infected tooth on Friday morning. I had not established a relationship with a dentist since moving to Sacramento. Googled emergency dentists and was incredibly fortunate to find Dr. Adams listing. Called them on a Friday afternoon as a new patient and was seen within an hour!!! Two teeth had to be pulled. Dr Adams and Dr Kristen were awesome. I didn't feel a thing....teeth were out quickly and painlessly. Everyone there is incredibly sweet and caring. Everything is spotless and clean - could not have asked for a better experience. I have found my forever Dentist.

They have cared for my teeth for 20+ years. Always warm and very trustworthy. I'd like to share my most recent visit, since it reflects the quality of care they have always provided. So my front tooth had a chipped bottom and my back tooth had a broken filling. First off, he fixed the broken filling without a problem. Next, Dr. Adams walked me through the options we had for the chipped tooth. I asked various questions to address my concerns. His explanations were comforting. For both my teeth issues, he gave me a full idea of what to expect. In the end, both teeth were cared for and function just fine now. No more worrying! I feel comfortable trusting him with caring for my teeth.

Like always had a great experience with Dr Adams and Dr Adams. Had two fillings done and was in and out in just over an hour, I liked how they took the time to explain the whole procedure to me and answered all my questions about my teeth. I also enjoyed their good background music. The staff was very friendly and helpful in answering all my billing questions and setting up my next appointment. See you guys next time!!
