Sacramento dentist describes fluoride treatmentsFluoride is an important element to keeping the smile healthy. A healthy smile is one that is free from cavities and periodontal disease. It is vibrant and builds confidence. A smile is seen regularly by the dentist to ensure optimum health. Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams of Sacramento offer fluoride treatments for patients who are serious about their dental health and wellness.
Fluoride is a mineral that is naturally occurring in many foods. Minerals are lost and restored over the course of time to the enamel of the tooth through demineralization and remineralization. This process can be maintained to a proper level with fluoride applications from a dentist.
Dentists may suggest fluoride applications for patients who are at a higher risk of developing cavities and periodontal disease. It is mostly used on children and teenagers between the ages of 6 and 16. However, patients of all ages can benefit from fluoride treatments, or the addition of fluoride through alternative means such as mouth rinses and toothpastes available over-the-counter.
Fluoride can be applied by a dentist in a variety of ways including gels, varnish, or foams. These have a higher level of fluoride than alternative applications including fluoride added to toothpastes and mouthwashes. They are applied directly to the teeth to offer an extra layer of protection. Some patients may even be advised to consider fluoride supplements that can be taken orally as a prescription medication. This can be determined during a visit with Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams to find out what fluoride delivery method is most appropriate based on patient needs.
If you live in or around the Sacramento area, Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams encourage you to take the time to learn about the advantages of applying fluoride through extra methods outside of toothpastes and mouthwashes. We recommend patients take the time to book an appointment at our practice and ask about the benefits of fluoride treatments through a dedicated dental professional to protect against periodontal diseases and cavities.

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!!
