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?

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.

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.

You know I understand cost and I understand that everyone needs to make a living but let me tell you 40,000 , wow. I mean wow!

I don't have an extra hidden sack of money with 40,000 in it lying around my house, nor in the bank! I guess if I could get on one of those new reality shows I could come up with 40,000!

you are right. Clear choice commercial makes you think that the cost is cheap. It Is Not. 40,000 is the cost of a full set. Unless you can afford a cadilac dont bother

Im only 27 years old and I have horrible teeth. My parents and my sister all have bad teeth. I can't afford dental work as it probably won't do any good. They say I was born with this crap! I have multiple tooth aches at a time and can only eat soup and things like this. My kids come first. So I ask this question , "is there an alternative for a guy like me trying to get this work done? And if there is how do I apply?".. This is killing me so any advice would be great.

I'm so sorry to hear what you are going through Chris. You might want to see if any of the universities in your area have a school of dentistry.  From what I understand going to a dental school can be a good way to get dental work done at a substantially reduced cost, so it might be worth looking into.

Yes it is cheaper if you are choosen, or poor enough for a Dental School to except you so they can practice/learn how to do certain procedures. Since they are "learning", I think it might be pretty painful to be their human guinea pig!

My name Chris and I have the same problem. I can still eat soft foods, but like you I have multiple toothaches. I lost two already and three more pretty much should have already been pulled, but I dont have the money. Constant headaches..it feels like my head is in a vice sometimes. Some days its K, but most its like that. I guess soon Ill pull thse three that need t go, and find some way to get implants for those and just take care of the rest

Hi, I opted to have my extractions and implants done at a school of dentistry. The total cost for upper and lower full implants was about $9,000.00 it was going to cost about $40,000 if I went to my own dentist.
