Methods for realignment of teeth in SacramentoAt the practice of Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams in Sacramento, area patients may be able to enjoy the benefits of teeth realignment without conventional braces. When patients think orthodontics, they think of metal bracket and wire orthodontia. However, continued advances in the area of dentistry have led to the development of Invisalign, a clear aligner system that can work in a similar manner without the brackets and wires.
Invisalign is becoming an increasingly popular way for teenagers and adults to straighten their teeth. This method uses low forces and clear plastic trays to guide teeth into their new positions gently. The aligner trays are high quality and very strong, though are only worn for approximately two weeks each. An entire series of trays is made for patients, and they are instructed when to switch to the next one. These trays snap comfortably into place over the dental arch and they are worn day and night. The only time patients should remove these trays is when they are brushing their teeth, flossing, or eating. At all other times, they are discreet and many patients still enjoy smiling, laughing, and talking with others without feeling self-conscious.
Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams often use Invisalign therapy for patients who have mild to moderate malocclusion. This includes the alignment of the anterior teeth and the bite. More severe cases may still require the assistance of an orthodontist. In cases where overcrowding is a concern, patients may undergo several extractions before the process is started to make room for the newly positioned teeth.
Invisalign has many benefits, including:
- Easy to maintain

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!!
