people who are leading america's smile freedom movement, putting healthier smiles on faces all over the map. welcome to "smile healthy america," featuring clearchoice dental implant centers. i'm here with dr. mark adams, a prosthodontist in denver, colorado. dr. adams, let's start by asking, where are clearchoice dental implant centers, and what makes them so unique? >> shari, we have 30 centers we're all the way from the east coast to the west coast. we go deep into texas. we're in the midwest. we have centers all over the u.s. i think what makes us special are several items. one is our doctor network. we have over 60 specialists -- oral surgeons and prosthodontists -- that have a unique and very experienced knowledge base. this is all we do, is place implants. that gives us a lot of experience in the area of dental
we treat the very complex situations, as well. secondly, we're unlike regular dental offices in that we have everyone in one location. we have all the specialties, so we can do surgery, we can do the actual restorative, as well. we have our own on-site dental laboratory where we can actually make the teeth. that's a very unique set of circumstances. and lastly, i think the thing that really makes us special is the fact that we have a dedicated employee base that has passion to change people's lives. i think, at the end of the day, that's what makes us so special -- our passion for changing people's lives. >> well, in my research, i've learned that clearchoice believes taking control of your dental health is essential to living a healthier life. and being able to smile openly and freely is a big part of that. so, tell us how you arrived at your sense of mission in your smile-freedom movement. it really hit me when i started treating these types of patients
take the smile, we take our teeth for granted. we laugh with our friends. we go out and we have dinner. we choose anything we want on the menu. it's easy to take that for granted. and yet, when you've lost that, it has a devastating effect on your life. i think, for me, what i saw, and the sense of mission it brought me, was that when you give that back to someone, when you help them get that smile and their confidence back, we've released the human potential in those people, and that's very gratifying. >> dr. adams, tell us about the kind of patients that you se what are some of the common dental problems that they face? >> well, we see patients who have lost all of their teeth, to patients that i would call dental refugees. they've had a lifetime of dental problems -- problems with all types of gum disease, cavities, missing teeth. the founder of the modern-day implants said, very famously, "no one should die with their teeth in a glass on the side of the bed at night." these patients truly are dental refugees and have had a lifetime of problems.
teeth, which were their baby teeth. they're on the verge, or they have lost, their adult teeth. they're looking for an answer. and now, with the predictability of implants, we can provide them with a third dentition which is stable and predictable. it's extraordinary. >> thank you, dr. adams. we'll be right back to tell you just how clearchoice is helping restore dental health and setting smiles free, right after this. ? >> you have to have conf anything that takes away from that puts you at risk. i get compliments all the time. "oh, my god, i can't believe how beautiful your teeth are." my self-confidence has gone up. the smile is one of the first things that people see. i mean, i used to always smile, i would keep my lips on my teeth. my dental problems started years ago with fillings and root canals. and i was looking at, at some point, my teeth falling out. i had to do something. clearchoice didn't just give me new teeth. they set me free to be who i
who have already set their smiles free at clearchoice. call or click to schedule your free consultation with our team of experts. >> it was a one-day process. i would walk out with a smile the same day. the lab, the surgery, any work that you need done, it's all done at one location. they not only helped to rebuild my smile but helped me to rebuild my self-confidence. they really set me free. i mean, look at this smile. >> announcer: don't wait another day. call clearchoice now. >> it transformation that happens in one day. patient comes in with bad teeth or no teeth, and they leave that day with a brand-new smile. there's hardly any cases here that we can't solve, that we can't achieve a nice result with a beautiful, new smile. clearchoice is special because we have the cutting-edge technology, multiple specialists, and the lab, all in one center. at the end of the day, when the patient looks at the mirror and
gratifying to know that i was part of a team to make that happen for them. i'm dr. ali kanawati, the prosthodontist at the clearchoice cleveland center. >> announcer: at clearchoice, you're about to discover what you've been missing all these years. >> ? your smile is waiting for you ? >> announcer: call clearchoice today. ? >> welcome back to "smile healthy america." dr. adams, you touched on this briefly earlier, but i'd like to talk more about the one-day transformation. how is it possible to create a full, new smile in just one da >> well, shari, let's talk about, previously, how it was done or how it's still, unfortunately, being done in some offices. so, first, you have to have all of your teeth removed, and you are given a denture. that denture sits on your healing gums. it's not a very comfortable process. several months of healing have to occur. finally, the implants can go in. again, they go underneath the gums, and this uncomfortable denture goes back over your
then, months and months of healing again. and, finally, you can get rid of the denture, and you can get teeth that are fixed in place on the implants. so it's a very arduous process, which you have to kind of have some fortitude to kind of get through. at clearchoice, we see that we can do this a better way because of our specialists. our doctors have a vast amount of experience and knowledge in the area, because placing implants is all we do. because we have dental technicians on site that can actual these are master craftsmen that can build your smile -- this gorgeous smile, the smile of your dreams -- while you wait. we have the technology right on site. we have the c.a.t. scan to allow us to precisely measure the bone and know exactly where to place these implants. so, not only we can place the implants but we can put teeth on them and we can do it immediately in just one day. and finally, we have a support staff that has the passion for helping you change your life by
together, we can create this full-arch implant restoration, and we can do it in just one day. it's really extraordinary. >> let's hear from some patients and clearchoice doctors talking about the full-arch implant restoration. ? >> announcer: our precise technology helps us create a whole new set of teeth, with as few as four implants on the top and four on the bottom. >> we can use a mimu implants and be able to provide a complete set of teeth without having to replace each individual tooth with a single implant. this one time is all tt they're going to have to go through to get a permanent solution. >> announcer: you get stronger teeth faster, with a minimum number of implants anchored in your jaw. dental implants are made of medical-grade titanium and custom-placed, based on your 3-d imaging c.t. scan. they are the most natural replacement for your missing teeth.
permanently and securely fusing with your bone. this actually takes care of two problems by slowing future bone loss and giving a strong foundation to your new teeth. a connector and then your porcelain crown are attached. it's strong, good-looking, and ready to take on your next smile. >> clearchoice was able to do the whole lower jaw with four implants, and then again, four more implants for my upper. that e i had all the teeth in my mouth. >> each time i would come back, we talked about the color, we talked about the size, and we wanted it just a little off. and finally, they put them in, and i loved it! >> i didn't realize how much detail there was with the implants and how much input i had in designing them, picking the color, picking the way they looked, to make it look like me. i feel like it's the new me. >> announcer: less surgery means less recovery time, so your new teeth are ready to go to work
join the thousands who are already smiling freely, thanks to clearchoice. ? >> growing up, my family didn't have very much money. i was told that i needed to get braces, but we couldn't afford that. by the time i became an adult, my teeth had kind of really got very, very bad, losing a lot of bone. my teeth were just getting worse. it was very bad for my confidence. when my daughter got married, i couldn't smile in the wedding pictures, because i was too embarrassed. something had to give. however, i did not want to have to wear dentures, because i had family members who wore them. their face didn't even look the same. i really wanted something that was going to be more permanent. when i came to clearchoice and i found that what they had to offer was going to be a solution for the rest of my life, to me, it was like a miracle. you know? you come in that morning, and
and it's hard to believe that, but it really is true. it was a very emotional experience to see yourself the first time. my teeth are there. they're like they are mine. beautiful! i mean, i have prettier teeth now than i ever had, my entire life. i just wish i would have done it 25 years ago, when i was younger and could take advantage of the look. [ laughing ] transformation. but, you know, i think the biggest question people have is about the cost of dental implants. >> no doubt, shari, the number-one question on people's mind is, "how much does this procedure cost?" and there's no doubt, this is an investment. but the question i ask patients all the time is, "do you feel that you are really worth this?" and i can tell you, from working with thousands and thousands of people, that you are worth this. it's an extraordinary
day. it's an extraordinary investment. >> so, this is something that everyday folks can afford? >> absolutely. my average patient coming in is just a regular patient. they have a job, they have a mortgage, they have a family, they're taking care of things. but they're also struggling with self-esteem, with being able to just enjoy a nice meal at a restaurant, to be able to smile at the dry cleaner when they pick up their clothes. those things that we take for granted, they're struggling with, and we can help them change that. we have fina them. we can make this affordable and fit this into their lifestyle. >> for more about affordability, here are some patients, doctors, and patient-education consultants to give you their perspectives. >> when patients come in, and maybe they've had bad teeth for years. they've seen the magazine in the drug store. and that's what we're trying to give them. we'll give them the smile they've been seeking for a long time, and it's finally the time to do that.
think about, worry about, or cover up your teeth ever again? it's time to find out at clearchoice. >> everybody here is looking to help people that come in the door make a better change for their lives. >> it truly is the best investment i've ever made in myself. and i have never, ever regretted a penny i've spent. >> it's probably the best investment you can make to yourself. there's nothing more personal than having a healthy, beautiful these teeth are part of your body. they're not dentures. they never come out of your mouth. if you would total up all the money you've spent in your whole life on dentistry, it's probably more than what this procedure costs. >> even though it was money that cost me up front, and i had to allot for it, so i had to cut back on things, i would do it again in a heartbeat. >> we have several financing options that we offer here at clearchoice. we work with several of the leaders in healthcare finance. so we get really creative in
they're not trading one stress for another and it's something that works comfortably in their monthly budget. >> i look at this as a necessary procedure in order to have a healthy life for the rest of my life. >> we're doing amazing transformations. and it's not just a smile, which is huge. changes that person's total outlook. we're changing self-esteem. >> it's the best investment ever. >> announcer: changing your smile an another reason this is clearly the best way to set your smile free. >> we'll be back in a minute to talk about overcoming the fear often associated with major dental procedures, like getting implants. ? >> i do get a lot of compliments about my smile. it makes me feel more self-confident. my teeth just were not healthy.
food started hurting my teeth, like steak, corn on the cob. this is something i had to do for me. and now i can eat anything i want. i would never consider dentures. i had my consultation with clearchoice. >> announcer: join the thousands who have already set their smiles free at clearchoice. call or click to schedule your free consultation with our team of experts. >> everything was all under one roof -- the doctors, the surgeon, prosthodontist, the i walked out of there with the teeth that i wante all done in one day. i'm extremely happy that i made that investment in me, because i know it's going to last me the rest of my life. my husband loves them, and i will always have this smile. always! [ chuckles ] >> announcer: don't wait another day. call clearchoice now. >> this right here is what we call larry's lounge. i have worked in this spot here now for 32 years. and this is my space. [ buzzer ]
"man, what have you done to your teeth?" "well, you know, i, uh, i just take care of them." my teeth were really bad. i mean, really, really bad. i wanted that confidence level where i could just, like, talk freely and people would say, "did you see that guy's teeth, man? they were beautiful." yeah, i made that 105-mile trip to have it done at clearchoice. when those folks gave me the mirror and i looked at myself, after having my broken, discolored teeth, and i looked at myself, i said, "oh, wow. look at that." i was taking some pictures of my new teeth, just trying to savor the moment. and you knowi mean, these tears... [ voice breaking ] just makes you feel good. i am glad i went to clearchoice and did what i did, because clearchoice was the clear choice for me. ?t really was. >> hi, again. i'm shari smith with
and we're still talking to dr. adams of clearchoice. so, dr. adams, you seem like a perfectly nice guy. but let's face it, not everyone loves going to the dentist. how do you put these people at ease? >> shari, i am a nice guy. as well are my colleagues. i can tell you, though, that after practicing dentistry for 30 years, not many people really want to go in and see the dentist. no one is really happy to be there. but i can tell you that, in our centers, we understand the occurred in someone's life to get them to the place where they have to now consider replacing all their teeth. we understand that. and what i would encourage anyone to do is call us. they can come to one of our centers, and they can have a free consultation. and at that time, they'll be able to meet us, they'll meet our staff, they'll understand that we truly care about them and this process of being able to change their life and do it in just one day.
the dentist for years, and they're embarrassed about the condition of their teeth. >> yes. and those people really don't have anything to be embarrassed about, because there isn't a situation that we've seen -- whatever is going on with you, we've probably seen it, and we've probably seen a lot worse. so i can tell you that we don't look at the past. we look forward and how we can help that person change their life. >> and what about pain management? >> well, one of the unique things about clearchoice centers is tha oral surgeons, are also specialists not just in the placement of implants. our oral-surgery specialists can provide you with i.v. sedation, so you can have a safe and comfortable experience. many of our patients go back to work within just a few days of having the procedure done. >> let's learn more about how clearchoice doctors help their patients feel more comfortable with dental implants. ? >> most people have had bad experience with dentists in the
by far, the majority of people leave here completely surpsed how comfortable it was. >> announcer: if the phrase "dental implants" leaves you feeling a little uneasy, you are not alone. at clearchoice, we have the skill and expertise to make every procedure as smooth as possible. we want to get you smiling freely, as comfortably and quickly as we can. >> i have big fear of the dentist. never liked to go. always made excuses. i would start getting anxious about it -- just the whole process and the drill. zzz! it was -- it was a nightmare. i started looking for alternative and found clearchoice. >> it's awesome. i mean, i don't just go to work, and go to work and have a job. i go to work and, "it's somebody's life is going to be changed today." it's just -- it's cool. it's -- it's neat. >> the setup here at clearchoice is all intentional. in fact, all of our locations across the country are set up and designed in a fashion so that patients don't feel like they're in a dental office. we recognize it takes a
our patients to pick up the phone, schedule an appointment, and actually walk through the door and it could be because of a past bad experience. and so our goal is for patients to come in, feel like they're welcome, not feel like it's a sterile environment. we take all of our patients on a tour. and many patients leave feeling like -- you know, they're hugging us. and they tell us that was the last thing that they thought would ever happen when they came through the doors. our process is all intentional for patients to feel comfortable. >> the number-one thing their dental implants, is, "i don't think about my teeth anymore. and that's huge for me." ? >> the first step with clearchoice is a free consultation at the center. so, what can i expect when i get there? >> well, you can expect, first of all, to meet with one of our patient-education consultants. please look at them as a partner in this process of helping you change your life.
going to do is they're just going to talk with you. they're going to talk to you about what's most important for you, what your vision is, what problems have you had in the past, and how we can help you, going forward, to take care of those problems. when you feel comfortable, they're going to give you a tour of our center. we're very proud of our center. and you're going to be able to meet some of our team members and see the passion we have for helping people change their life. we're going to take a 3-d c.a.t. scan of your jaws so that one of our doctors can then sit down and actually put together a customized plan for you to be able to answer your questions and solve the problems that you have. you'll then meet with that doctor so that you can have any of the questions about what we propose having done answered, as well, including how long it will take and what the costs are. >> and this initial consultation takes about how long? >> well, it's free and it takes about an hour. we want to make sure there's plenty of time to answer all of your questions and make sure you
we can do for you but also how long it will take and what kind of costs are involved. >> clearchoice gives hundreds of consultations every day. here are some patients, doctors, and patient-education consultants to tell you more. ? >> i came to clearchoice for my consultation, and i met with dr. adams. and i felt a great confidence in him right away. and i was in pretty bad shape. i had run out of teeth to eat with and had to do somethi >> announcer: from the second you walk into clearchoice for your free consultation until you leave with your new smile, we do our best to make you feel at ease, at home, and comfortable to ask questions until you can't think of any more to ask. >> one of the benefits of clearchoice, obviously, is that we are set up in a way where we can spend that hour, hour and a half it's going to take to really educate the patient and really discuss what this is going to do for you, how this is going to change your life, what
other options are. >> my job is to meet patients coming into the center for the first time, and seeing if clearchoice is the right spot for them, if we can help them move forward with their dental goals. >> we actually involve the patient a lot. "hey, what do you want? bring us photos. show us your best smile." the c.t. scan tells us how much bone is there. it tells us if there's infections. it tells us a lot of things. and so, when we look at that, we're already cutting to the chase. >> announcer: so, at the end of the day, what can you expect at your consultation? you'll meet your doctors and their team, you'll get your imaging c.t. scan that tells us how your mouth looks from the inside out, and you'll find out how much it's going to cost and how we can help with financing. >> my teeth look amazing. i feel fabulous about the way they look and the way they feel. ? >> we'll be back with dr. adams right after this.
my daughter got married. i stood in the background for the wedding pictures. i would laugh and put my hand over my teeth. i had no self-confidence. and i thought, "i don't want dentures. i don't want my teeth on a nightstand." it was like a nightmare. and now i go to weddings, i get in their pictures because i look good. i feel good. in one day, they can give you all the self-confidence that you didn't have before. when you walk out of here, you have it. >> announcer: who have already set their smiles free at clearchoice. call or click to schedule your free consultation with our team of experts. >> with clearchoice, i could go in and come out the same day with a beautiful smile. clearchoice just gave us a way out. >> announcer: don't wait another day. call clearchoice now. >> i can't imagine going the rest of my life without a smile. it was like a dream come true.
reminder of no limits. ever since i've had my surgery, i've done three half-marathons. well, this is my third one. i had a really extreme case of periodontal disease. i felt gorgeous and great inside, but it didn't look that way with the teeth that i had. i'm 36 years old, and someone is telling me, "you need to get full dentures." i'm thinking clicking, clacky teeth, i'm thinking i have to soak them at night. i thought, "you know, there has to be another choice." and my husband actually was the one who saw a commercial on tv. and i went ahead and made the step to go in. after my surgery, i was handed a mirror. it was unbelievable. i cried. they cried with me. it was -- it was an unbelievable moment. when i'm out running, i feel amazing. [ sighs ] it's just a reminder of how my life has changed in these past two years.
they're a blessing. they're a huge blessing in my life. i will never forget the loving care that they gave me. and that's from the heart. ? ? >> we're back to wrap up this episode of "smile healthy america." dr. adams, we've heard it from your patients and we've seen it in your doctors. clea profound difference in the lives of thousands of people all over the country. and it all comes back to your unique all-in-one approach to dental implants. we've learned about the clearchoice approach, how you're able to restore full smiles in one day, using the full-arch treatment. we've seen how you're helping people deal with their natural fears of having this procedure done, walking them through the entire process, and giving them finance options so that they can afford dental implants.
your dental health and joining the smile-freedom movement, isn't it? >> shari, i couldn't agree with you more. it really is. you mentioned fear. many of our patients are very fearful. they've had the fear of having a bad smile, the fear of not being able to really show their teeth in public. they don't feel like they've had any control over what their smile looks like, any control over what all these expenses have cost them and their family, both in time and money. and while we do help these patients regain their dental health, and we do have to talk about implants and we have to talk about teeth, really, at the end of the day, it's not about any of that at all. it's about freedom -- freedom from dentures, freedom from worrying about your smile again, the freedom to walk into a restaurant, order anything that you want, the freedom of getting off this merry-go-round of continued failed "denturations." it's really about freedom, and we're very proud to set these
