What is sleep apnea?Sleep apnea is a disruption in your natural breathing pattern while you sleep. The airway becomes obstructed by tissues in the throat, causing the oxygen reaching your brain to dramatically decrease. When this happens, you brain signals your body to startle awake, causing you to gasp and breathe again. Individuals with obstructive sleep apnea experience this pattern repeatedly, up to hundreds of times per night.
In addition to excessive snoring and massively disrupting sleep, which leads to daytime fatigue and reduced productivity, sleep apnea can contribute to many other serious health problems, including:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Stress, mood disorders, and depression
- Memory loss
Oral appliance treatment for sleep apneaFor years, CPAP treatment was the mainstay in treating sleep apnea. While effective, CPAP machines can be bulky and disruptive, which leads to low treatment compliance. Oral appliance therapy is an alternative to CPAP therapy and is a comfortable and effective way to treat sleep apnea.
Oral appliances are custom-designed mouthpieces that are worn in the mouth while sleeping. The appliance is designed to maintain an open, unobstructed airway, allowing you to breathe normally throughout the night and reducing the symptoms of sleep apnea. Because the appliance is designed to stabilize the oral structures, you may notice some soreness in the initial few days of wearing it, but over time, it will become a comfortable way to improve your sleep and your quality of life.

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!!
