Obstructive sleep apnea can be treated with snore and sleep solutions from your Sacramento dentistEvery night, millions of Americans lose sleep to obstructive sleep apnea. Many of those people don’t even know they have the condition. Drs. Adams and their team are experienced in identifying and treating the condition.
Most people with obstructive sleep apnea do not think they have a serious condition, but rather simply think that they snore a lot. There is a major difference between snoring and sleep apnea. Patients with regular snoring are still breathing. When apneic events occur in someone with sleep apnea, breathing actually pauses. For many, this can occur hundreds of times during the night, resulting in very poor rest.
The standard treatment for sleep apnea has been a CPAP machine. The device forces air into the airway to keep it open. Patients are required to wear a mask while they sleep. The CPAP machine can be loud and uncomfortable, which makes compliance low. When used correctly, CPAP machines are very effective, however many patients have difficulty with them.
At our Sacramento office, we offer an alternative to CPAP. Oral appliance therapy can provide proven results without having to use a loud, uncomfortable machine. We’ve helped many people enjoy a proper night’s rest with these custom appliances.
Many patients have inquired about over the counter oral appliances that promise to relieve symptoms of sleep apnea. While the convenience of these devices can be tempting, they are one-size-fits-all and not specifically tailored to your individual oral structure. In most cases, over-the-counter devices do not deliver the same results as custom oral appliances.
If you think your lack of sleep goes beyond snoring, our team can determine if you are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. We have years of experience in diagnosing and successfully treating the condition. Call our team at 916-999-1302.

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!!
