Sacramento area patients can receive immediate dental care for a knocked tooth at our practiceHigh impact sports can increase the risk of dental problems, especially that of a knocked out tooth. Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams of Sacramento are dental professionals who have helped patients with immediate dental care for a variety of situations. They are dedicated to assisting others in maintaining dental health and also providing them options when the unthinkable occurs.
Trauma is often the reason why a tooth may be knocked out of the mouth. This can happen at any time and should be handled appropriately when it occurs. Patients should have an emergency dentist on their side for situations such as this, someone whom they can call for an appointment. However, many patients are unsure of what to do with their tooth in the meantime.
A knocked out tooth should be handled in a certain way to improve the chances of saving it. First off, the tooth should only be touched by the crown and not the root. This is if the tooth can be found. Once obtained, it should be gently washed with water and repositioned into the socket if possible. The tooth should not be cleaned by any other means, including soap or chemicals. Patients should avoid scrubbing the tooth, allowing it to become dry, or wrapping it in cloth or tissue. This reduces the chance for replacement. Keep the tooth moist in the original socket, or place it in milk or emergency tooth preservation kits such as Save-a-Tooth®.
Once the tooth has been replaced in the mouth or has been stored in milk or preservation liquids, patients should visit their dentist within 30 minutes from the time of trauma. This can improve the chances of saving the tooth. Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams should be contacted as soon as the incident occurs for an emergency appointment, and the above steps should be taken before visiting.
A knocked out tooth is just one of many dental emergencies but is common when patients do not take preventative measures for protecting their smile during high impact sports. Patients who are going to be active in these kinds of sports should speak with their dentist about the use of a special mouth guard for optimum

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!!
