I am a bit surprised at the your experience with dental implants. I had got dental implants a couple of years ago ans things are going pretty well for me. I went to Dr. David Silberman's clinic at Texas. The whole process took about 10 months and I got titanium implants. Dr. Silberman works closely with a number of periodontists or oral surgeons close to the office who are able to place the implants accurately, safely and comfortably. Maybe you should look at his website for more details http://www.shorttermbraces.com/

look at mini implants pioneered by Dr Shatkin. much less costly and no surgery needed.

Mini Implants are less costly but in no way similar to a fixed implant bridge. Mini implants also have a relatively high failure rate. Most people still love their implant bridge in 10 years most will have to redo mini implants in that time.

How easy is keeping the All-on-4 dental implants clean?

Very easy, I brush and then waterpick. Simple and I wish I had done this 20 years ago. I love my new smile and teeth. Kind of expensive but I financed part at 0% and will have them paid off by March. ;-)

I read that fixed prostheses also must be professionally unscrewed and cleaned annually to remove plaque buildup on them next to the gums, right? Does it take long?

Viva, they told me the prosthetic buildup is to restore lost vertical dimension and a more youthful facial bone structure.

Anyone having major surgery in the mouth with drilling into your jaw bone etc ..: You will have pain and swelling. Unless you are under general anesthesia you will hear and feel what they are doing. The human mouth is filthy. Infection can easily set in. People with broken jaws are wired and can have swelling and pain for weeks and weeks. Why are people complaining about pain? Commonsense people...it's not going to be easy they are drilling into bone! Man up!

ccrnbean, I am sorry I didn't see this sooner. I have been distracted by other things. I don't know if you have had dental implants, but I can tell you, I had no pain to speak of. I didn't take as much as a tylenol. I can't speak for other people, but I was told there would be no pain....I had no pain. I can't even say I had soreness. I had very little swelling and one small bruise. It took a little getting used to the new teeth, but nothing I would call pain.

I'm waiting for my dental appointment to have the last 8teeth removed to get. Ready for plates and I was wondering has anybody ever been put to sleep to have teeth extracted ?? I'm very scared the last dentist numbed me 7 times and grabbed the tooth with his tool and crushed my back tooth all the way down to the gum and left the rest in my mouth after that I was so scared to be hurt again now I have a servere abscess and had to leave work to go to emergency room !!

Finally ! Now, I'm happy ! The only thing I ever wanted from the beginning was a great set of teeth. Now, I have them. I just couldn't live with the first set of finals, so they built another set. Now ! Now, I'm smiling ! Now, it's time to go to the dance ! That's what I really came here for.

I have a world of empathy for "nopain". Along with many other problems, I have a large bump under my skin just an inch to the side of my nose. The dental surgeon says it is a "bone reaction". Two other doctors say it it is because of one of the implants being poorly placed. This makes sense out of the pain and asymmetrical swelling I experienced....and the bump is still getting bigger as the bone continues to calcify over the exposed leading tip of the implant. The part I hate the most about Clear Choice is that they do not fully explain to you all the possible things that can go wrong. It is now obvious to me that their goal is not to help you make an informed choice. They only care about selling you their product/services. If they had fully explained to me all of the possible negative consequences, I would never had consented to the procedure. My prosthesis broke at least 3 times during the first 6 months and now my final teeth just broke! I can no longer do public speaking because of how much my mouth salivates and how impaired my speech is still after almost a full year. I was conned......plain and simple. If I knew then what I know now........

Well, I got my final teeth yesterday. For the entire 6 months of waiting for my final teeth to be installed, I had a severe speech impairment and a whistle. Now, the whistle is more uncontrollable than ever and is much louder when I speak. It's very embarrassing and impossible to prevent. I wouldn't do this again if they paid me ten times what I paid them. I was promised "NO PAIN". It was the most excruciating event on my life. I have a multitude of problems that must be addressed, such as sharp edges of bone, all in the lower jaw. Also, right after the surgery, I noticed a huge roll of fat/tissue on the right side of my mouth. At the time, because of the swelling, I wasn't sure what it was. As the months have passed by, the fat has migrated up and now it feels like I have about 10 sticks of gum on the right side of my mouth. The skin on my neck is pulled to one side and I feel like there is a direct relationship between that and the tissue problem in my mouth. They want me to wait another month and then, after I have spent the holidays spending time with friends and family, and suffering through what will no doubt will be spent trying to explain why I would have ever spent $40,050.00. on a whistle ! ($50.00 to cover the credit card fee on the $1000.00 down which was presented to me as a $4,950.00 discount...really?)

I'm so sorry to hear how much discomfort you are experiencing. :( Hopefully they are right, and that things will become more comfortable over the 1 month waiting period they have requested from you.

I am so sorry you are going through this. I hope they can do something to alleviate your problems. I am a month in, following my surgery, and have had no problems or pain. I would be very upset to have to suffer what you have gone through. (BTW, Clear Choice didn't do mine....I don't know if that makes a difference).

Frank, I am sorry I am just now seeing this. My implants were done by Dr. Brueggen in Houston. You can find him at nodentures.com. I have had no problems with mine, and they feel like my own teeth now. I am due to go back for my 3 mo. check up, which was to be tomorrow, but due to him having to be out of town, I will see him on Monday, Feb 18th.

I went to a private dentist in Houston, Texas and paid $50,000. I think Clear Choice would have been less, but I liked this dentist and that is why I chose him...plus he has 35 years of experience doing implants. I had 5 implants on top and 4 on bottom. I have had a tiny bit of discomfort but nothing to warrant taking anything at all for pain. I had at least 15 teeth pulled and 6 bone grafts. I expected some discomfort but it isn't anything I can't tolerate. It has just been a week today, but so far, so good. No complaints.
