You may not need an orthodontist to correct a bad bite in SacramentoThe appearance of your smile is important to your overall self-esteem. We understand, and we assist you in looking and feeling your best. If it is a bad bite, you may also be struggling with comfort, and functional speech and chewing, and may be at an increased risk for further dental problems. Most people are aware that Invisalign is an excellent system for moving crooked teeth into alignment, but it may come as a surprise to know that you may be able to correct a bad bite without having to see a Sacramento orthodontist for metal braces.
Do you have a bad bite?Ideally, when upper and lower teeth come together, the upper teeth will protrude slightly in front of the lower teeth. If this does not occur naturally, it is referred to as a "bad bite," or malocclusion. A bad bite may be characterized as a cross-bite, under-bite, over-bite, or open-bite.
- An open bite prevents the appropriate overlap of upper teeth over lowers.
- An over-bite is characterized by a more severe overlap, or noticeable protrusion of upper teeth.
- When an under-bite is present, the upper teeth land behind the lower teeth when biting down.
- If any upper teeth are overlapped by lower teeth, a cross-bite is present.

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!!
