NoPain, I think you are just one of those complainers. I had all my teeth pulled and i experienced NO PAIN during my procedure. I do not believe what you are saying. My husband accompanied me to my surgery, he waited in the recovery room for me. He was NOT in the surgical area. How your son could have been present to request more anesthesia? You can tell the real patients from the fake ones, or the COMPLAINERS, we love our finished beautiful smiles!

I would say that the pain was tolerable, especially with the meds they gave you. I think the swelling was worse than the pain. With ice packs and alternating heat helped tremendously. I was feeling a lot better by the 4th day. And, everytime I looked in the mirror I would smile. I had no pain during the surgery or immediately after. It was definitely a positive experience. I really like my doctors and the staff at Phoenix Clear choice, I received nothing but first class treatment from them all.

Upfront I will state I am not a fan of Clear Choice. But what are they doing? At the very, very, least I would expect that if you are getting IV sedation that you are out. To be aware during the procedure wasn't the way it was explained to me. Pain 11 days after the procedure is another unusual thing. Perhaps a little discomfort when chewing but pain. Suggests things were done very quickly without regard to surround gum tissue. Also thought the temporaries were world class. The more I hear about them the gladder I am that I did something else. I have repeated this several times on the forum. Implants preserve bone by providing pressure where they are placed. With the Clear Choice all on 4 - and this is worse with the angled implants - you are only stimulating bone in a very small area of the mouth - in the very front. This will work at first. But what happens to that bone underneath the permanent bridges in the back as times goes on. It goes away and you are left with a bad fit in the back.

Had full mouth of extractions and implants done on 9-6. Yes, I had pain but the pain killers helped alot. by day 11 or so, i was off those and taking advil when needed. I love these! I had advanced periodontal disease and this was a must since some teeth were already loose. The temporary set is a little bulky, but that is to protect the implants. So far so good! Clear choice in san antonio rocks!!

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.

Well, I talked to my son last night, who was my advocate for the day. I was in so much pain during the procedure, that my son requested more pain control. He was informed that the anesthesiologist had left for the day, before the procedure was complete. In other words, I suffered needlessly.

I'm very sorry but this does not add up. This is a surgery and you son would not have been in the room to know you were in pain. The oral surgeon and anesthetist work hand in hand during the entire procedure and there is no way they left before you were placed in the recovery room. Now, if you were in pain in the recovery room then they needed to give you pain meds. Remember, you were given prescriptions to fill and bring with you to the surgery. I had a wonderful experience but I am not doubting you experiences pain as all surgeries and circumstances are different. But no way did the anesthetist leave before the end of the surgery.

I had my all on four (actually it was all on 9 in my case....five uppers and four lowers) done two days ago. I have not had to take anything for pain. I had at least 15 teeth pulled, including a couple that had broken off at the roots. I can tell I had a procedure done but nothing to warrant even taking one tylenol. I was concerned about my speech....afraid I would "whistle" when I talked but I don't. I didn't go to Clear Choice, but to Dr. Brueggen in Houston. I don't know if that makes a difference. I chose Dr. Brueggen because he had such excellent reviews and has been doing this for about 35 years. I also liked his easy going, kind personality. I felt totally comfortable with him.

Can you tell me exactly where you were in the room when my surgery was taking place ? Do you work for CC ? I find it odd that every time someone reveals something bad about CC, then all of these 'so called' former patients come running and broadcasting about how they wish they could do it again !

...Clearchoice told me that the oral surgeon works as the anesthetist as well. I find it odd that we don't need ananethesioligist. any help here? please? I have to have this surgery soon!
