Seems like Clear Choice is the cheapest option for implants.

I am a disabled Veteran so I’m on a fixed income. I need dental implants and went around town trying to find the best option. Clear Choice was by far the cheapest. I saw nearly five different dentists. Clear Choice was at $50K still, I told them my situation and they agreed to $30K. That’s more than half the cost than other dentists quoted me. I think I’m moving forward, but wondering if you’ve heard of complaints from Clear Choice? I have to take the most affordable option since there isn’t even a comparison at the fees they gave me compared to the others

Michael,

Most Clear Choice complaints tend to revolve around their sales tactics. They don’t really offer too many options. Whenever someone is considering Clear Choice, it’s always wise to seek a second opinion. Well, for any type of dental implant procedure, it is always a great idea to seek a second opinion to explore your options and see different recommendations.

It sounds like your budget is a large factor in your decision. It also sounds like you have seen multiple dentists for implant consultations. Only you can decide if it’s the best option for you. Generally speaking, Clear Choice hires reputable, experienced doctors.

If you aren’t quite sure you’re ready to sign on the line, it may be worth it to take the Clear Choice price quote and return to a couple of the previous implant dentists you have seen. They may be more motivated to work with you on fees. Also, the mega price drop from over $50K to $30K is a bit suspicious. How can they drop that drastically? It makes you wonder if they originally marked things up extraordinarily. That doesn’t leave the best feeling or impression.

One last thing to consider is your age. You failed to mention that. If you have existing teeth that can be saved, it’s wise to keep them. Just be sure when you are price comparing that you are looking at the same treatment plans. It’s generally ideal to keep as many of your natural teeth as possible, versus having them extracted.

Good luck!

Can I just get dental implants instead of braces?

I have some crowding on one side of my mouth and the last thing I want to do is be a brace face. I saw a Clear Choice commercial and I was wondering if I can just get my teeth pulled and replaced with dental implants?

Darrel,

Although Clear Choice Dental Implant Centers may look appealing in their commercial, please think this plan through before taking any action.

Based on what you have described, it doesn’t really sound like you are dental implant candidate. There may be some alternative treatments that will work better for you. Most reputable dentists will do absolutely everything possible to preserve healthy tooth structure. So, having crooked teeth extracted because you don’t like braces doesn’t sound like a logical decision.

Although dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth, the process is quite invasive and the procedure is highly complex. It is difficult to say what other options are best for you without having that much information about your specific case, but you need to meet with a reputable implant dentist in addition to Clear Choice if you decide to get a consultation from them.

It is possible you may be able to get crowns, have only a tooth or two removed and have a successful bridge, or possibly a partial denture? Or maybe you it would be best to incorporate dental implants into your treatment plan. But please don’t pull healthy teeth. Once they are gone, there is not getting them back.

If crowding is the main issue here, it is possible Invisalign may work for you. Don’t make any rash decisions based on some bias about orthodontics. You need to make the best decision for your long-term oral health. It’s time to see a respected implant dentist and go from there.

I have a Clear Choice Complaint

I am not happy with my experience with Clear Choice and want to voice my concern in an attempt to help others.

Here’s some background. When I first went to see Clear Choice, I had no teeth and was wearing a complete denture. So I was already dissatisfied with how my dentures were functioning, which is why I sought them out. After the consult, it was suggested I get all-on-four for my top and on the lower they said bridges would work. All of this for $44K. Of course I thought it was expensive but I was willing to do anything to improve my daily quality of life.

I had to move to another state, so I originally just had the bridges done as temporaries so they could be finished locally. After the procedure, I was shocked to find out I had an “overdenture” which was attached to implants and the pain was unbearable. I feel like I was blind-sided and that I didn’t get what I paid for.

How can they just decide an alternative treatment plan. I am livid and they will hear about it at my follow-up appointment. Beware of Clear Choice everyone! Double check your treatment plan before moving forward. I feel completely duped.

Bart,

Clear Choice Dental Implant Centers do have high fees and they are known for recommending all-on-four dental implants as their bread and butter. Some clinics are better than others, but they have a reputation for fostering a high pressure sales situation, so it may have been possible you were mislead in the sales process. But it is a pretty tall order to say they did an alternate treatment plan without your consent. Hopefully this is addressed in the follow-up appointment things cleared up are cleared up.

As for post-operative pain, that is common of such an extensive surgical procedure. There is no indication that Clear Choice did anything incorrectly to cause the pain.

In hindsight and for the benefit of anyone reading this post, it is always good to get a second opinion for this kind of work. Different doctors bring different perspectives and different fees. To the visitor that is considering Clear Choice or any implant dentist, do your research and get another opinion before committing to treatment.

Sorry to hear you had a negative experience.
