How much does ClearChoice cost?

  • 2 years ago

I have a general question. I don't know much about ClearChoice, but I'm curious: There's one review that lists the cost at $42,500. Is this for real? Does ClearChoice cost this much normally or did that patient have a special case?

That price is correct. I used Clear Choice. I'm about a fourth of the way through the procedure and couldn't be happier.

I'm in Denver and now there are local ads stating cost around $1700 per implant. Not bad after reading the above. These guys are expensive because they are chains and have huge advertising costs. Check out Dr Johnny Local and read reviews and interview them.

I had a tooth knocked out in an ultimate frisbee game and the cheapest implant I could find in all of Orange County was around $2000. I drove down to Tijuana and received great care from a Mexican dentist who did his residency at UC Davis. The sum total of implant and crown (installed six months later) was $1000.

just go to Taiwan or Japan and have the implants done and you can get it done for 10% of the cost for the whole mouth of teeth. That cost is outrageous.

Total costs vary depending on the level of treatment needed by each patient – such as the location of missing teeth and amount of bone loss. All-inclusive costs for single implant cases in our centers typically range between $4,000 - $8,000, with one-day procedures to restore full arches averaging $20,000 - $26,000 per arch.

Does anyone know if Clear Choice accepts Dental Insurance or is it ALL out of pocket? Thanks!

I believe if your dental insurance covers implants you would have to bill it yourself to be reimbursed. A patient needs to pay upfront.

Most dental insurance plans do not cover implants, but even if they did, most dental insurance providers only pay a maximum of $1000 a year.

I could get away with probably 4-5 implants. Whats a package deal on 5 run?

I didn't have my implants done by clear choice - but the price range was about the same (actually a little higher because of some bone grafts needed). I had a full upper arch on 6 implants. Total cost was about $45,000. I know that sounds like a lot of money, and it is - but you have to think about quality of life. I was miserable with my full upper denture. It fit fine and didn't hurt - but not tasting food and the mess of taking it in and out was just unbearable for me. As far as cost goes - think about how much a new car costs (almost as much for a decent one) - and how long does a car last or retain its value? A titanium full upper arch on implants will pretty much a life time. I use my teeth 24/7 and a car maybe once or twice a day. I would rather have a cheap car and great teeth that don't limit what I can eat or taste.

You are dead-on, Roberta. I did not use Clear Choice either, and I needed grafting too, and a "sinus bump" which took my full uppers and lowers (with 6 and 5 implants, respectively) to $47, 250.00. I have no regrets and am just so grateful to have had the good fortune to do it. I knew dentures would be in my future and did not do well with partials...I could not imagine have full dentures. Good thing, too. The transitional ones they made for me for the few months it took to complete were well fitting but I HATED THEM. I stayed home most of the time without them in my mouth and wore them only when I absolutely had to. I am very happy and for what was delivered....would recommend going for it if you can find the means. Clear Choice is not out of line with their pricing. Yes, it is expensive, but the freedom you get as a result it so worth it!

Frak1964. I needed these for the past 10 years. I remember the first time I called was probably 8 years ago and my reaction was the same as yours. WOW! I'll never be able to afford those so I'll just live with missing/failing teeth and someday get dentures. But I just couldn't stand the thought of dentures and somehow I was finally able to get this procedure done. I wish anyone needing it could just walk in, have it done and not have to worry about cost. I hope you will be able to get them someday!!!!

It's nice to finally read a story with a positive ending! I would like to know if you had implants " all of the top and bottom done". If so, then I understand why it would be so expensive.

I only want two or three on my lower. Hopefully that won't cost even 10,000!

Makes sense...... plus, once you get your dental implants, no more cavities.

You are so right. When I saw the commercial I started crying thinking well maybe I can afford this you see I have no teeth. Guess what the cost is around 40,000 they need to add that to the commercial so people want get there hopes up like I did.
