(inspiring music) and over the next 30 minutes, we'll show you how to reclaim you smile and the good life that can go with it. welcome to smile healthy bay area. (applause)
3:32 am
- hi, everyone. it's so good to see you all here today at smile healthy. i'm lisa singer and over the next half hour, we are going to get empowered. we'll be exploring how to reclaim lives shackled from the pain and embarrassment of significant tooth loss. joining me in the studio today is renowned prosthodontist, dr. mark adams. (applause) dr. adams and other doctors throughout the clear choice network transform people's lives on a daily basis, including right here in the bay area. we're about to find out how their team tackles the chronic dental issues that can make life miserable for so many. (applause) dr. adams, you truly help to give people a second chance at life. - mhmm. - all by improving their smile. why is a healthy smile so important? - the ability to be able to smile at a loved one, to be able to walk into a restaurant and order anything you want, those are things that those of us
3:33 am
who have healthy teeth, we take for granted, but not let's think about the person who doesn't have that, who can't eat the foods they like, wants to hide their smile. it's a terrible and devastating effect on their life. - i can't imagine, and you're right. i do take for granted that i can chew a piece of steak, but for those who can't why is that? what gets in the way of their healthy smile? - most of the people that come to see us have cavities. they have gum disease. they're on this merry-go-round of having problems with their teeth and even though they have put a lot of effort into this, because of the disease processes they are losing their teeth. they come to a point where all of a sudden, they have to do something. - they're coming to you. they're looking for a change. is there, though, a typical patient that comes to clear choice? - our patients are anywhere from 19 to 99 years old. they come from all walks of life. what they share in common is they want another solution that will allow them to smile, to chew,
3:34 am
to live a normal life. - you're truly helping people find those simple pleasures in life again. for someone watching right now, how do they find out more? - there's a number on the screen. we want you to call it. you can visit our website, make an appointment. there's no obligation at all. - that's wonderful. there is hope. - absolutely. - and what's great is clear choice makes such a profound impact on so many lives and these patients love to share their stories. now, let's meet one of those patients whose life was transformed by clear choice dental implants. here is drew's story. - my name is drew and this is my clear choice story. i started losing my teeth as a teen and by the time i was an adult, i had lost three front teeth and had all kinds of dental issues. it's amazing how your smile can affect you. i kind of felt like i was living life in the shadows.
3:35 am
i gave up my friendships, eating the foods that i love to eat. i got to a point where i said, "i need to do something and get back to the old drew." from the moment i walked into clear choice, i knew i was in the right place. they took the time to explain to me how i was going to become the person i used to be. it was an investment in myself and it brought me back to where i wanted to live. i'm out here doing the stuff that i love and the people at clear choice gave that back to me. (applause) - [lisa] wow, what a powerful story. - [dr. adams] yes, indeed. - it's incredible how this one decision allows for a transformation that reaches so far beyond the mouth, so how does someone go from the before to the after? - at clear choice, we take a patient-centered approach because every patient is unique. they all have unique goals. it starts out with having the entire
3:36 am
team together in one location. you have the prosthodontist, you have the oral surgeon. you have all of the dental staff and the medical equipment and the laboratory all in one location to help these patients achieve their goals, and it all starts with a consultation. we want to hear about the vision that these people have for their smile. what do they want this to actually look like? we talk about what their objectives and what their goals of the treatment are. we call that the smile healthy approach because every patient then walks out with a customized plan. - yeah, and it's just so remarkable that a dental issue can affect your entire life. - at clear choice, we have locations all across the country and we hear these emotional stories all the time. patients who suffer emotionally and physically. they're masters of being able to hide their smile. patients who are unable to sit down and enjoy a meal because of the pain going on in their mouth. imagine not being able to eat foods because you are trying
3:37 am
to chew these foods and your teeth hurt and are sore. they don't want to wear a denture. they're looking for another solution. - and you talked earlier about the pain of chewing - sure. - i, from experience, have had that, where i'm afraid to go to the dentist because i have a little bit of a fear of pain, myself. - sure. - how does clear choice handle pain management? - every patient is unique, and so every patient needs a customized approach to being able to handle that. i can tell you in general, though, our goal is to minimize any kind of discomfort for our patient. we have pain management, not only for the procedure itself, but right afterwards. you have to remember, though, that these implants become part of your body, so that when you begin to chew and eat, you don't have a set of teeth that are moving around. they look, feel, and act like real teeth. there isn't any pain associated with them like you have with a lot of removable teeth. when you have a denture, it can move around and it can cause a lot of pain, and here's the worst part.
3:38 am
a denture causes bone loss, where as the implants help to actually save the actual bone. - it sounds so wonderful, and it must be really gratifying to be a part of that. - i've been doing this for over 30 years and these patient's stories, the ability to be able to come in and help these people hit their human potential and really start to participate in life again. i'm so lucky everyday to be able to help these patients. - now, let's meet another special person who changed their life with their decision to smile healthy. (applause) - my name is randy, and this is my clear choice story. brisket cooked for two full days. my passion in life has always been serving some of the best barbecue you could ever serve. i had a motorcycle accident when i was 15 and had a bridge put in. my mouth was terrible.
3:39 am
it's very hard to eat barbecue without teeth. if you can't chew it, you're not going to be able to enjoy it, and i'm a chef. can you imagine not being able to taste your own food? to be able to have a palate and taste everything was so important to me. i decided that something needed to be done about my teeth. i saw the commercial that clear choice could get it done in one day. this was the choice for me. today, i get to live the life that i want to live and cook with the passion that i feel. clear choice gave me my passion for cooking back. - you can be a success story, too. coming up on smile healthy, find out how dental implants work and how you can change your life in one location in one day, just like lori did. (inspirational music) - they took an x-ray of my mouth and they were able to say, "we can work with that." (laughter) - your teeth are in.
3:40 am
- oh, my gosh. (laughter) - we'll be right back. - i would come in sometimes as early as three and four in the morning to avoid people. when you've got 10 to 12 teeth missing, you can't hide that. - it really impacted a lot of his life, both professionally and at home with the family. - for years, i would dream of a place where i could go and one day come out and have all my teeth. - at clear choice, our responsibility is to educate you and facilitate so you are very comfortable with the decision you are making. - [tim] doing dentures just wouldn't work for me. it was a very collaborative and team approach to it. they've got a lab there. everything gets done in the lab. clear choice put together a very personalized plan and i've got the best smile i could ever ask for in one day. it is 100% transformation. (inspirational music)
3:41 am
(upbeat music) - welcome back to smile healthy bay area. i'm lisa singer and here with prosthodontist dr. mark adams, and we've go some amazing stories of folks who are making the most of their second chance at life, thanks to dental implants. before we get into the procedure, i just have one simple question. what is the difference between dentures and implants? - lisa, actually, that's a great question. this is a denture, and here's the problem. if you look at this denture, first of all, it's not permanent because it sits on the gums, and because a denture causes bone loss, the gums are constantly changing, so it constantly has to be refit. it has this big piece of plastic, which covers the roof of your mouth, so you can't get to those taste buds, so when you're trying to eat that chocolate cake or you're trying to drink that coffee, that coffee
3:42 am
can't get to those taste buds, so you lose a lot of your taste with a denture. it's also made from a material which is prone to being fractured broke, or chipped. now, if we contrast that with the implant bridge, you can see first of all, there's nothing in the roof of the mouth. you can taste that coffee, you can eat those foods. also, if you look at this, it doesn't sit on the gums. it sits on the implants, and the extraordinary thing is that it only takes four implants to replace an entire set of teeth, and it's made from a material, zirconia, that is very, very strong. it doesn't change, chip, or wear like plastic does. - now, dr. adams, tell me the steps that people take once they walk through the doors. - great, let's walk through those steps. first, it's the free consultation, which we've spoken about. our patient's going to come in and we're going to talk to them about what's your vision for creating
