>> you're watching "the wellness hour," the leader in medical news and information. i'm randy alvarez. today's topic, replacing missing teeth with dental implants. according to my first guest, no more dentures. and with us we have an expert on the topic. he is a prosthodontist -- dr. mark adams. dr. adams, welcome to the program. >> thanks for having me, randy. >> now, before we get into today's topic -- and i know you brought a lot of photos, and we'll get to as many as we can -- tell us a little bit about clearchoice. i guess you're kind of unique. you focus on just about one thing. so, who is the typical patient? >> we focus solely on dental implants, and our average patient is looking for help. they haven't seen a dentist in a very long time. they're a dental refugee. they're outside of the regular care. they're not part of the public that sees a dentist on a regular basis. they truly are dental refugees. they suffer from all kinds of problems -- gum disease, caries,
missing teeth, removable teeth -- and they're looking for an answer. they're looking for a solution. these people had their baby teeth, then they got their adult teeth, and their adult teeth have failed them. through the power of implants, we're able to give them a third set of teeth. >> is that right? a third set? >> we can predictably, reliably provide that, and we can do it, randy, in just one day. >> you say things like, "we transform people's lives in one day." you believe that? >> i sense your skepticism. i don't believe it. i know it. and there's a difference between believing and knowing. because i see it every day. i'm forced to talk about titanium screws in teeth and all the stuff that dentists have to talk about. that's not what i do, randy. what we do, through the power, reliability, and predictability of dental implants, is we transform people's lives by unleashing human potential. think about it. the most simple thing that you can do is smile. and when that's taken away from you, when that's robbed, and you
don't have that, it's devastating. when you give that smile back, you unleash human potential. >> good. now, at the top of the show, we said no more dentures. are you of the belief that nobody should be wearing a denture, a traditional denture? >> right now, we have the power to end dentures forever. we really do. now, that's not to say that there aren't people out there who have to have a denture for one reason or another. but i can tell you, through dental implants, we can eliminate dentures as a treatment option. >> so, this is the hottest trend in dentistry, replacing missing teeth with dental implants. is that right? >> it's hot because -- what's hot about it is the immediacy of it. we live in a society where people want to pull up to the window at mcdonald's, they want their coke and they want their burger and they want it right now. implants have been around for a long time. why weren't they ever hot? because it took a long time. today -- and you're not gonna
believe this either, but today i can do in one day -- one day -- what it used to take me 18 months to do. in one day. >> is that right. >> and that is the clearchoice difference. >> and help me understand this. >> sure. >> so, how it's normally done when you want to get a dental implant, you go to one place that does the surgery. >> correct. >> you go to another place, the dentist, that puts the teeth on top, maybe another place that does the imaging. you have this -- you do everything right there. is that correct? >> yes. so, here's the concept. instead of the patient having to run around to various practitioners, we bring the oral surgeon, we bring the prosthodontist, we bring that together with the imaging so we can take the i-cat image. and -- and what's lacking in a lot of areas, we bring the master dental technician, the artist who actually builds these teeth -- >> to the lab right there, too? >> absolutely. so, we bring those four parts together -- technology, doctors, lab.
it's a one stop for our patients. >> does it -- i mean, does it have to cost more to go to somebody that's a specialist like an oral surgeon, prosthodontist, all right there? >> it's important to lower the barriers to this care, because this care -- i mean, think about what we do, randy. we can replace missing teeth with a third set that looks, acts, and feels as close to natural teeth as you can get. it's a phenomenal story. >> but are there really a lot of people wearing dentures? >> [ laughs ] there's that skepticism again, right? i will tell you, there are literally tens of thousands of patients that are suffering from this disability -- >> missing teeth? >> missing teeth. and that's counting patients that have missing all of their teeth, or patients that are missing most of their teeth. literally tens of thousands. >> so, if it's so good, then why aren't all these millions of people that have dentures or are missing a lot of teeth, why aren't they all doing it? why aren't they all getting dental implants? what's your take? >> a number of reasons. let's talk about that. first, understand, you've got great teeth. you've had great teeth your whole life. >> yes. >> these people have had
problems with their teeth their entire life. imagine your life if you're talking about 20, 30, 40, 50 trips to the dentist. root canals, gum issues, cavities, missing teeth, removable partials. they just want off that merry-go-round of misery. that's what it is. a merry-go-round of misery. so, what do they do? they get their teeth removed. they have dentures. they are done seeing us. they don't have to see a dentist anymore. they don't want to come in anymore, right? so they're outside the system. no one ever sits down and says, "well, you know, there's more. there's another way. there's a third set of teeth that we could..." >> so, they don't want to see a dentist. >> sure. >> last thing they want to do. >> they're all done. and then, what's even worse, is they'll self-diagnose. they'll see an ad on tv -- maybe they'll watch your show -- and they'll go, "i probably don't have enough bone to have that done." and as bad as that is, the other part is really worse. well, they'll say, "wow, implants. i probably have to have one for every tooth that i'm missing, so the cost of this is gonna be extraordinary. i could never do that."
so they self-diagnose themselves right out of the solution in the first place. >> but isn't it true, if you've been wearing a denture for 30-plus years, you don't have enough bone to get this done? >> that's not true. we see patients every day that have been without teeth for 10, 20, 30 years or more. some of the solutions are more difficult to achieve, some are easier. >> they can eat and chew whatever? whatever they want, i mean? as far as eating and chewing once it's all done? >> they walk into a restaurant, and instead of picking and choosing, they can order anything they want on the menu. >> one of the things you say in your advertisements is they can walk in on the day of the procedure -- they could walk in without teeth and walk out with a fixed set of teeth that don't come in and out. >> that's correct. >> is that rare? >> is it rare -- >> or does it happen a lot? >> it happens every day. >> is that right? >> every day. our patients are in our centers at 7:00 a.m. for surgery. they're walking out in early to late afternoon with a new set of teeth held in place by the implants. we do it every day. >> are they ever skeptical, the patients on these consults?
like, "are you sure?" >> sure. i mean, look at -- that used to happen a lot more. it doesn't now. the word's out there. they've talked to friends. they've talked to relatives. it's not hard to find someone who's had this procedure done and see what it's done to transform their life and unleash their human potential. >> good for you. you like this. >> absolutely. absolutely. look, i've been practicing for 31 years as a dentist. if you come in and you've got a problem with a back tooth, and i put a filling in there for you, that's not very transformational, right? it's a service that i provide. you say thank you, and that's it. these patients, this changes their lives. to be a part of that -- i am humbled every day to be able to experience what these people experience. >> so, you brought photos. what are we looking at? >> i did. here's brady. let me tell you about brady. >> oh, my goodness. >> the first thing you're going to look at is you're going to see his teeth. but i want you take a look at something else. look at his eyes. and let me tell you the story
about brady. brady's a farmer, right? he's a dry-plains farmer, meaning he doesn't irrigate. so whatever the good lord sends, that's what he gets. he's been living from riches to ruin his whole life. if it rains, he's got riches. if it's drought, he's got ruin. >> all right. >> and he's had this hardscrabble existence out there, and he's done it his whole life. he's a third-generation dry-land farmer. one day, he's playing in the yard with his granddaughter, who he adores, and she says to him, "papa, what's wrong with your teeth? what's wrong with your mouth?" think about that. you granddaughter. it devastated him. >> he tells you this in the consult? >> he tells us this. he cries at the consult. he can't even bear to face his granddaughter anymore because she looks at him and says, "what's wrong with your mouth?" brady also knew that his mom had dentures. he watched his mother struggle for over 30 years wearing dentures, to the point that, in her later years, she didn't even
wear them at all. and he watched her walk around the house with that sunken-in look that people have when they don't have dentures. dentures were not a solution for brady. >> and, by the way, what i'm looking at here, is this -- i mean, this has got to be completely unusual to have teeth this bad. >> this is an everyday patient in one of our centers. >> is that right? >> we see the disenfranchised. we see the patient who's a dental refugee. they've tried it all. they've gone in for gum cleanings. they've gone in to have cavities filled. some have had great access. some have not had as good of access. but they've all struggled in some way to hang on to those adult teeth. they're looking for an answer. he saw our ads. now, i know you're gonna look at his teeth when i show you his "after." i know you're going to look at his teeth. but i don't want you to look at his teeth. >> very nice. >> look at his eyes. >> yeah. >> look at his eyes. that's a person who's now alive. look at the "before." >> mm-hmm. >> that's a dead smile. that's a fellow who ca
