Sacramento area dentists describe cosmetic dental implantsWhen patients visit the practice of Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams, they often want to learn about the ways of restoring their smiles when dealing with lost or extracted natural teeth. There are several restoration options available for Sacramento area patients, but the most commonly suggested cosmetic dentistry method is that of dental implants.
Dental implants act as tooth roots. Made of titanium, these special posts are surgically implanted into the bone of the jaw. This is how the implant derives its strength and stability. Over the course of several weeks, osseointegration occurs. This is the process of the bone fusing to the implant. Once this has occurred and the implant is firmly in place, an abutment is placed over the top as well as a dental crown. Some patients use implants to hold bridges and dentures.
Dental implants are the best way to repair a smile after tooth loss or extraction. However, not everyone is an appropriate candidate. Candidates must have sufficient jawbone. Patients who have been missing teeth for some time may experience the disintegration of bone. These patients may want to consider a procedure called bone grafting to build up the bone to the point where it can hold a dental implant. To determine if patients can undergo the dental implant procedure, they must have a thorough examination done by Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams, during which x-rays will be completed to check bone stability and placement.
Dental implants have a wide variety of benefits. They are:
- Strong and stable
- Used to disperse chewing forces to the jawbone
- Beautiful and natural-looking
- Long-lasting (typically over the course of one's lifetime)
- Permanent, not removable
- Easy to care for
- Used to maintain bone
- The best value over time

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!!
