From what I’ve read in online Clear Choice reviews it looks like I can get the 4 implants I need in just one day. I checked out their website and it pretty much confirms it. I’m trying to understand why the consultations I got at prosthodontists are different from what Clear Choice can do. On average, the prosthodontists said it would take 3-4 months to complete the work. Why would I choose a prosthodontist instead of Clear Choice if I can get same-day implants? – Mike
Mike – Clear Choice reviews from patients are mixed—positive and negative. You did well to get multiple opinions on your dental implants. Prosthodontists are a good choice for consultations, because unlike other “implant dentists” their post-dental school education qualifies them as specialists in replacing and restoring teeth.
Are Same-Day Implants Unique to Clear Choice?
Is the offer of same-day dental implants only something that Clear Choice can do? Consider the facts:
- “Same-day” really means that you will receive your implants and temporary restorations (dental crowns) in the same day.
- Clear Choice is able to advertise same-day implants because all their work is completed at the same facility. It’s very convenient for patients.
- It should be noted that the phases of same-day implants with Clear Choice are the same phases that a prosthodontist provides in his or her office.
- Regardless of where you receive dental implants, there will still be a two to five month healing period before permanent crowns are placed. There is no way around the healing period. Your jawbone must fuse to the dental implants for them to heal and be successful.
Feel free to schedule a consultation at Clear Choice and ask questions about the healing process. You’ll find that the requirements are similar to what the prosthodontists explained. Compare your options to make a fully informed decision about your dental implant provider.
