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........
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.
Dear Byugal: Please send me the name of the Company, address, and phone number to my e-mail address which is **************@yahoo.com. which did your teeth. I nead to have my mouth straightened out and would like to have this done.I thank you in advance for this information. Sincerely yours, Frank Taylor.
i had full upper and lower implants-my last 20 teeth removed,day of surgery. clearchoice saved me from dentures. had this done 4 years ago and would recommned it to anyone-for a few,or all terminal teeth,as mine were. theu took excellent care of me even brewing tea for iced tea-since i dont drink soda. my quote was 60k for full mouth implants, but since i paid in full up front, i saved 10% =$6000.00 off the price. id do it all over again-i get compliments all the time, i can eat many things now that were impossible w/ my natural teeth. i also had no bone grafts, sinus lifts or anything complicated like that. 4 years in.. and they look as good as day one. remake your smile. its an investment in yourself for the long term. im so happy to be pain -free, i cant even explain it!
I would like some feedback in regard to the Redland, Ca office. I am thinking about having some work done there. Thanks to all who reply.
That is a very good observation, and questions Sheryl5. The Worth It Rating is based off the reviews that have been submitted. So far no one has submitted a review for ClearChoice and marked it as "Not Worth It" (there are currently 9 reviews). If a person who has had a ClearChoice procedure was to submit a review and mark it "Not Worth It" the rating would change.
Hope that helps to clarify. :)
Nopain: I guess I was really lucky. I did not have any pain at all. I already had a full set of upper dentures, so I did not have to get any teeth pulled. I am sure it is much more painful if they have to pull you teeth and then do the procedure for the implants right after. But in my case, because I did not have any upper teeth, the pain and swelling was very minimal and only lasted two or three days. The only thing I really hate is the cost...about $20,000.
