Why might a Sacramento dentist suggest advanced dental sealants?When patients in the Sacramento area are interested in learning about advanced dental treatments and technologies, they often turn to the team of Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams. Together, this team can provide patients with the best comprehensive dentistry services in the area and allow them to enjoy the benefits of quality care. Our team is committed to helping patients not only rejuvenate their smile, but reach great oral health. In order to do so, some patients may find dental sealants to be advantageous.
Dental sealants are commonly used for children, but can also be used for adults who are at a higher risk of developing dental caries. These are applied to the surfaces of the teeth to offer extra protection against decay. They can be wonderful for areas of the teeth such as deep grooves and crevices which may difficult to thoroughly brush. Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams can work with patients to determine if dental sealants are appropriate for them. This is done during an initial examination and with a dental health history. Patients may also undergo a series of x-rays to make sure they do not have any active areas of decay which may inhibit their effectiveness.
Sealants are easily applied in one visit. The teeth are cleaned, and then once dried, a solution is applied onto the surface to roughen it. This helps the sealant adhere to the tooth. Then the tooth is rinsed and dried before the sealant is applied. The sealant is a liquid that hardens in just a few seconds.
At the same appointment, patients can also speak to our dental team about restorative and cosmetic dentistry services. We want to help our patients achieve beautiful smiles that are reasonably priced and attainable for the average family, while still using the best, most high quality materials available in dentistry. If you live in the area of Sacramento and want to schedule an appointment with our team, feel free to contact Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams today. We work with new and existing families to assist in achieving wonderful oral health habits

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!!
