Do it for you and your partner: Sleep apnea and snoring treatments in Sacramento, CAPosted by Kosta J. Adams, DDS, MAGD, FICOI / Kristen J. Adams - Dentist Sacramento
Snoring and intimacyLoud, persistent snoring is typical with OSA, and the condition has other sleep-disruptive characteristics. As you fall asleep, the tongue relaxes back toward the throat as soft tissues collapse. The airway is restricted, so breathing becomes shallow or is completely impeded for up to several minutes at a time. The brain senses dangerously low blood oxygen levels, sending a rush of adrenalin.
- You jerk, snort, or choke into wakefulness.
- Possibly get up to use the rest room.
- The cycle repeats - potentially dozens of times each hour.
Obviously, OSA prevents you from reaching deep sleep phases necessary for hormonal balance, cellular regeneration, and alert daytime performance. Your partner suffers many of the same effects. He or she is likely to retreat to the furthest reach of the bed, sofa, or spare room. Over time this builds resentment and breaks down healthy intimacy.
According to Paul Rosenblatt’s book “Two in a Bed: The Social System of Couple Bed Sharing,” couples site sleeping in the same bed as extremely important to their relationship. The physical comfort and closeness extends to a few quiet moments to deal with daily issues and solve problems - a luxury with busy daytime schedules.

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!!
