WESTBOUND, THOSE SPEEDS AT 14 MILES PER HOUR. JANINE, VICTOR. Victor: NOT TOO MANY PEOPLE LIKE GOING TO THE DENTIST BUT WE’VE ALL GOT TO DO IT, AND IF YOU’RE MISSING SOME OF YOUR TEETH, WELL, YOU MAY BE A LITTLE JUST TOO EMBARRASSED TO SMILE. Janine: IN TODAY’S HEALTH CAST OUR MEDICAL SPECIALIST KRISTI KRUEGER SHOWS US HOW THE SAME TECHNOLOGY TO FIX INJURED KNEES AND SHOULDERS IS NOW BEING USED TO MAKE DENTAL IMPLANTS AND THE RESULTS MAY HAVE YOU SMILING AGAIN QUICKLY WITH A LOT LESS PAIN. Kristi: 81-YEAR-OLD LIKE HIS MOUTH NOW, BUT UNTIL RECENTLY THIS LOVING GRANDPA WAS MISSING SO MANY TEETH, HE SAID HE LOOKED LIKE BUG BUNNY. I DIDN’T WANT TO SCARE MY GRANDKIDS WHEN I SMILED. I SAID, I HAVE TO GO GET SOMETHING DONE. Kristi: WHAT JOE DID WAS TURN TO DR. ARJUN GARD WHO IS PIONEERING ENDOSCOPIC DENTAL IMPLANTS. USING 3D IMAGES AND SPECIAL MOLDS, THE DOCTOR IS ABLE TO SCREW IN THE IMPLANTS THROUGH TINY HOLES. IT MAKES THINGS MUCH FASTER. NO UNCISIONS, NO BLEEDING. IT IS BETTER POSTOP APPEARING AND MUCH, MUCH GREATER AC REGAS. Kristi: I WILL AUTO GUNS WI QUAKE LOW DOSE CT SCAN THAT GIVES THE DOCTOR DETAILED 3D IMAGES. THESE ARE THE C.A.T. SCAN IMAGES. FROM HERE THE DOCTOR IS ABLE GO GET A GOOD VIEW OF THE BONE AND WHERE THE TOOTH NEEDS TO BE, AND THEN FROM THESE IMAGES HE DESIGNS A HOLD MOLD JUST LIKE THIS ONE. THE MOLD IS THEN USED DUGAN A SECOND VISIT TO PRECISELY PLACE THE DENTAL IMPLANTS. MAKE THE HOLE FOR THE ACCIDENTAL IMPLANT, SCREW IN THE IMPLANT, AND THAT’S IT. IT’S THAT EASY. IT’S LITERARY 3 OOH, FOUR, FIVE MINUTES. Kristi: PATIENTS LOVE THE CONVENIENCE. IT WAS VERY PLEASANT, PLEASANT PROCEDURE AND VERY PLEASANT POSTOPERATIVE EXPERIENCE. MINIMAL PAIN. MINIMAL SWELLING. I WAS ABLE TO RESUME MY DAILY ACT OF OF LIVING WITHIN JUST A FEW DAYS. Kristi: AND JOE NO LONGER FEELS LIKE BUGS BUNY. YOU CAN EAT WHATEVER YOU WANT TO EAT. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT BREAK CAN ANYTHING BECAUSE THEY ARE JUST ALMOST LIKE NORMAL TEETH. Kristi: NOW, THE COST OF THE ENDOSCOPIC DENTAL IMPLANT ALONG WITH A CROWN CAN BE ANYWHERE FROM UNDER $2,000 TO AS MUCH AS $5,000 DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH WORK NEEDS TO BE DONE. N. INSURANCE, THOUGH, SOMETIMES DOES PICK UP A PORTION OF THAT COST.
