Couples seek snoring treatment from Sacramento, CA dentistsPosted by Kosta J. Adams, DDS, MAGD, FICOI / Kristen J. Adams - Dentist Sacramento
More than a snoreLoud, chronic snoring can drive half of a couple to the sofa or spare room, and it may also be a sign of a serious condition called obstructive sleep apnea.
During an episode of sleep apnea, breathing becomes shallow or stops for up to several minutes. As blood oxygen levels plummet, the brain and body become deprived. A surge of adrenalin jolts you awake so that you gasp a few deep breaths, reposition, and start over. Obviously, this cycle (which may repeat dozens of times per hour), does not allow restful sleep for anyone in the room.
A patient with sleep disordered breathing faces many possible health complications including:
- Acid reflux.
- Bruxism and TMJ problems.
- Daytime drowsiness.
- Headaches and migraines.
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure.
- Increased risk of workplace and roadway accidents.
- Lack of mental focus.
- Type 2 diabetes.
Snoring treatment rescues relationships in Sacramento, CATreatment for snoring and OSA has come a long way. At one time, surgery was a common consideration. Then CPAP became the go-to therapy, with a compressor providing a continuous flow of air, delivered through a face mask; then EPAP (expiratory positive airway pressure), a smaller breathing support device.
Today, you an effective alternative for snoring and sleep apnea. This discreet device snaps over teeth with a customized fit. The splint keeps your tongue in place, positions the jaw slightly forward, and holds the mouth open just a bit. In many cases it resolves snoring, and in severe cases of OSA, an oral appliance improves the effectiveness of CPAP.

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!!
