Clear Choice uses the All on 4 dental implant solution. With the All on 4 you get 4 dental implants upper and 4 dental implants lower.

There are two major problems with the All on 4 dental implant technique used by Clear Choice Dental Implant Centers.

4 dental implants is not a lot of support for a full arch. The All on 4 technique uses a special technique that has the 2 dental implants at each end set at a 30 degeree angle. This does help give extra support. However, IF YOU EVER HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ANY ONE OF THE 4 IMPLANTS, the entire bridge has to be replaced. This is not true of the more traditional All on 6, where you get 6 dental implants upper and 6 dental implants lower, or the All on 8, where you get 8 implants upper and 8 dental implants upper and 8 dental implants lower.

The second problem with the All on 4 dental implant technique used by Clear Choice Dental Implant Centers is that all of the 4 dental implants are placed in the front part of the mouth. One of the major reasons to get dental implants is because they stimulate the bone in the jaw and prevent bone loss. With the All on 4 implant technique used by Clear Choice Dental Implant Centers there is no stimulation to the bone in the molar areas of each arch. In time the bone in these areas will be reaborbed. As the bone in the molar areas is reabsorbed due to no dental implants / no stimulation , the support under the fixed bridges will be reduced. With the All on 4 dental implant technique used by Clear Choice Dental Implant Centers there is a high probablility that in 5 -7 years the bridge will break due to lack of support and will have to be replaced.

It is interesting to note that the Clear Choice Dental Implant Centers' guarantee for the All on 4 dental implant procedure is 5 years.


THINGS TO BE AWARE OF AT CLEAR CHOICE DENTAL IMPLANT CENTERS

  • Clear Choice Dental Implant Centers are very, very, aggressive in recommending that all your teeth be extracted. Other dentists have found these recommendations excessive
  • The All on 4 dental implant techniques was designed for patients with substantial bone loss. In some cases a patient actaully has to have their gums shaved down. IF YOU ARE TOLD YOUR GUMS WILL HAVE TO BE SHAVED DOWN, CONSIDER ALTERNATIVES.
  • You are only getting 4 implants, placed towards the front of the mouth, per arch. This method works but provides no implant stimulation to the bone in the back of the arch.
  • You only get a 5 year guarantee on work done.
