What are Dental Implants? When are They Necessary?

A dental implant is a structure made of titanium and other biocompatible materials implanted into the oral tissues in the mouth or within or through the bone to provide retention and support for a fixed or removable dental prosthesis.

Dental implants look, feel, and function like regular teeth. They can replace an entire row of teeth or a single tooth. Unlike other traditional dentistry procedures, dental implants offer a convenient and long-term solution for missing teeth.2

Dental implants are recommended for patients who:

  • Have missing teeth or gaps
  • Are not satisfied with their removable dental prosthesis
  • Need extra support for their current removable partial dental prosthesis3

In many cases, dental implants can last from 25 years to an entire lifetime with proper care and maintenance.

How Does ClearChoice Work?

Here is how the ClearChoice process works:

1. All-Inclusive Approach

The traditional path for receiving dental implants includes setting up separate visits with different specialists, waiting on scans and records to be transferred, and slow communication times. You also have to make several stops at separate locations, which costs time and money. 

ClearChoice eliminates these issues with their all-inclusive approach. More specifically, the entire dental team, lab, and support staff are together in the same center. This approach is highly efficient and collaborative, which results in better treatment plans and experiences for patients.

2. What to Expect at Your Free Consultation

At your free consultation, you’ll first meet with your ClearChoice team. They will walk you through what to expect if you select ClearChoice for your dental implants and answer any questions you may have.

Then you will receive a custom preliminary treatment plan. A 3D CT scan will enable the doctors to develop a comprehensive treatment plan specifically for you.

From there, you will leave your consultation knowing exactly how much your dental implants will cost, as well as the third-party financing options available.

3. Finding a Location Near You 

ClearChoice has locations in 28 states throughout the United States. To find a ClearChoice dental implant center near you, visit https://www.clearchoice.com/locations/

4. Dental Implant Procedure: How it Works

During a dental implant procedure, a doctor implants titanium screws into the jaw. Connectors (called abutments) connect them to a set of custom prosthetic teeth.

Depending on your procedure, your ClearChoice doctors have various pain management options to make you as comfortable as possible. After the process, your dental implants will be in place, and you’ll go home with a temporary set of teeth.

As you heal, you’ll come in for regular checkups at no additional cost. The staff will make sure you’re adjusting to the new implants and prepare your final set of teeth. You’ll try these teeth to make sure they’re comfortable and fit the way you want.

Afterward, when your mouth has finished healing, your temporary teeth will be replaced with your new custom teeth. You’ll have a custom smile made just for you that looks, feels, and functions like natural teeth.4

Types of Implant Procedures Offered by ClearChoice

ClearChoice specializes in all-on-four dental implants, which are placed in just one day

All-on-four implants are four precisely placed implants on the top and bottom. These implants are made of titanium. They are fused to living bone in the jaw and serve as a robust and long-lasting foundation for new teeth.5

How Much Do ClearChoice Dental Implants Cost?

Each set of ClearChoice Dental Implants is different because every smile is different.

At your free consultation, you’ll receive a 3D CT scan and discuss your treatment goals and options with your doctor. From there, the ClearChoice dental specialists will prepare a preliminary treatment plan for your specific needs and give you an exact, all-inclusive cost.

The factors included in the ClearChoice all-inclusive cost include:

  • A pre-procedure exam
  • The procedure to place the implants and temporary teeth
  • The creation of your custom prosthetic teeth
  • Post-procedure check-ups and fitting your custom teeth

Most ClearChoice implant centers charge one flat fee for their new-smile-in-a-day service. The price varies based on the individual but the average cost for All-on-4 implants is between $35,000 and $55,000.

Some dental implant procedures are covered by insurance, while others aren’t. 

Some insurance companies won’t cover dental implants because they are cosmetic. But others will cover part of the procedure. It depends on the kind of dental implant procedure performed, why the implant is needed, and the insurance used.

ClearChoice accepts third-party financing options and also provides payment plans for every budget.6

How Long Do ClearChoice Dental Implants Last?

ClearChoice dental implants usually last at least 25 years and can last a lifetime with proper care. On the other hand, short-term fixes like bridges and dentures typically only last 5 to 10 years, which can add up recurring costs.

Dental Implants vs. Dentures: Which is Right for You?

Many people choose dental implants over dentures as a solution for smile restoration. Dental implants offer many benefits like improved comfort, enhanced chewing ability, and better overall dental health. 

Here’s a quick comparison of dental implants and dentures:

Dental Implants

  • Preserve bone and maintain facial structure
  • Feel and function like natural teeth
  • Robust, stable, and securely attached to the jaw; fit comfortably around 
  • No need for creams or adhesives
  • Help restore normal chewing capacity
  • Long-lasting solution
  • Easy care and cleaning
  • Do not need a replacement for at least 25 years and can last a lifetime 

Dentures

  • Can feel fake and unnatural
  • Often slip and move
  • Can be uncomfortable
  • Sometimes require creams and adhesives
  • Restrict chewing capacity
  • Eventually need to be remade or relined
  • Need to be removed regularly for cleaning
  • Less expensive, but often less effective
  • Require replacement every seven to 15 years
