(upbeat music) and over the next 30 minutes, we'll show you how to claim your smile and the good life that can go with it. welcome to smile healthy bay area. (audience applause) andov, we're 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. (audience applause) dr. adams and other doctors throughout the clearchoice network transform people's lives on a daily basis, including three centers 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. (audience applause) dr.adams, you truly help to give people a second chance at life? - mm-hmm. - 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 who have healthy teeth, we take for granted. but now 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, they 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. and so 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 clearchoice? - our patients are anywhere from 19 to 99 years old, what they share in common is eyti that will allow them to smile, to chew, to live a normal life. - you're truly helping people find those simple pleasures in life again. so 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 clearchoice 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 clearchoice dental implants. here's drew's story. (mellow music) - my name is drew and this is my clearchoice story. i started losing my teeth as a teen. i te 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, gave up my friendships, eating the foods that i love to eat. yeah, i got to a point where i said i need to do something and get back to the old drew. (uplifting music) from the moment i walked into clearchoice,
i knew i was in the right place. they took the time to explain to me how i was gonna become (breathes heavily) 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. the people at clearchoice gave that back to me. (audience applause) - wow, what a powerful story. - 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 clearchoice, we take a patient-centered approach because every patient is unique, they all have unique goals. it starts out with having the entire 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 wanna 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 clearchoice, 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 to chew these foods a dent tr other solution., an, and i, from experience, had that where i'm afraid
to go to the dentist because i have a little bit of a fear of pain myself. so how does clearchoice 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, and so 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, a denture causes bone loss whereas the implants help to actually save the actual bone. - wow, 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 patients' 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 every day be able to help these patients. - now let's need another special person who changed their life with their decision to smile healthy. (audience applause) (twangy music) - my name is randy, and this is my clearchoice story. brisket cooked for two full days. my passion in life has always been serving some of the best barbecue you could ever serve. (twangy music) i had a motorcycle accident when i was 15 and had a bridge put in. my mouth was terrible. it's very hard to eat barbecue without teeth. you can't chew it, you're not gonna be able to enjoy it, and i'm a chef. can you imagine not being able to taste your own food? (uplifting music) to be able to have a palette and taste everything was so important to me.
i had decided that something needed to be done about my teeth. i saw the commercial this was a choice for me. today, i get to live the life that i wanna live clearchoice 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. (upbeat music) - they took an x-ray of my mouth and they were able to say we can work with that. (lori laughs) - her teeth are in. - oh my gosh (laughs excitedly). - we'll be right back. - i would come into work 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.
- having to talk in front of groups, he was very shy because he didn't like to show his teeth or smile. - for years, i would dream of the place where i could go and one day come out and have all my teeth. - at clearchoice, our responsibility is to educate you and facilitate, so you are very comfortable with the decision you're making. - doing dentures just wouldn't work for me. it was a very collaborative and team approach. they've got a lab there, everything gets done in the lab, clearchoice put together a personalized plan, and i've got the best smile i could ever ask for, in one day. - [mark] it is 100% transformation.
