At the table, from left, were House Speaker NICHOLAS MATTIELLO, Senate President TERESA PAIVA WEED, and Lt. Gov. DAN MCKEE. All lost in the preliminary round, but they and 27 other participants received $1,000 each for their chosen charities, as $60,000 in total was awarded by Twin River. JOHN GREGORY, left, president and CEO of the Northern R.I Chamber of Commerce, and PAUL DEROCHE, representing the Providence Chamber, laugh as the cards come up lucky for Gregory. Both made it to the finals, with Gregory winning $3,500 for R.I. Special Olympics, and DeRoche winning $1,500 for Crossroads RI. Charities the real winner at Twin River Celebrity Blackjack Chronic sleep deprivation can put you at higher risk for chronic health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. Oddly enough, the dentist is often the first person to diagnose a sleep disorder. In particular, "sleep apnea" is a condition that causes repeated breathing interruptions throughout the night. These breathing pauses can last anywhere from a few seconds to minutes, and may occur thirty or more times per hour. While snoring is the most common symptom of sleep apnea, tooth-grinding (bruxism) is also a reliable indicator of sleep apnea. If the dentist finds evidence of tooth wear and/or receding gums, it may be an indication of nightly tooth grinding related to a potentially serious sleep problem. Chronic sleep deprivation can also raise your risk of gum disease or making existing periodontal problems worse. Research suggests that it's more damaging than either chronic stress or daily alcohol use. To schedule a consultation, please call (401) 762-2422. My passion is designing beautiful and comfortable smiles through procedures such as veneers, implants, and teeth whitening. Find out more about Smile Makeovers on my website. The office is located at 460 S. Main St., Woonsocket. P.S. A small jaw, a tongue with scalloped edges, and redness in the throat (caused by excessive snoring) are indicators of bruxism and related problems.
