Can Sacramento area patients obtain transparent braces?Correcting the smile when misalignment, overcrowding, and bite problems are an issue often brings to mind the idea of traditional braces. Braces, are often seen as metal brackets and wires glued to the teeth to reposition them within the dental arch and enhance the appearance of the smile while also repairing poor bite alignment. Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams of Sacramento know that both teenagers and adults can benefit from orthodontia when they want to correct the alignment of their smile, but most are turned off by the concept of covering their smiles with unattractive metal. Thanks to continued improvements in orthodontics, patients can now enjoy the benefits of transparent braces.
Transparent braces are difficult to discern from the natural teeth. This includes a treatment known as Invisalign. Invisalign is a method of correcting the alignment of the smile without the use of metal braces. Instead, this method uses clear aligner trays that are worn over the dental arch day and night to reposition the teeth. What's great about transparent braces such as Invisalign is they give patients confidence while going through their orthodontic treatment. They don't have to hide their smiles because of metal covering their teeth.
Invisalign starts with a consultation appointment to determine if patients are proper candidates. Those who may be best for the treatment are men and women who have mild to moderate misalignment of their bite or dental arch. The process starts with impressions, which are used to create a series of trays, and the patient is advised to wear them every day and night for two weeks before switching to the next tray in the series. Over time, the teeth will slowly move into their proper locations. Patients can maintain the alignment by wearing their final tray as a retainer each night.

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!!
