apples, baby back ribs. i did not want dentures to be part of my life. i pretty much decided dental implants weren't the route i was gonna take. - let's do a head-to-head comparison of dental implants versus dentures. with dentures, the ability to taste food, to bite and chew, is altered. the worst thing about dentures, bone loss. when you put an implant inside the bone, which is like the root of the tooth, now you preserve the bone, it's a game changer. with implants, you walk into a restaurant you order anything you want, you eat just like you have real teeth. - [ann] before you knew it, here i was with my brand new teeth. - [announcer] schedule your free consultation today. we'll even talk about financing options. - i can smile, my confidence is back. - [announcer] call clearchoice today. - welcome back to smile healthy bay area. i'm lisa singer back with prosthodontist dr. mark adams. during the break, we've been discussing more powerful stories of transformation, and here's another one for you.
