I have had about 10 implants. I have also spoke to at least 50 dentists or oral surgeons.
Dental Implants is the largest dental scam in years. They made it such a way that no insurance will cover implants or if they do it might be discounted by 10% of there normal charge. Most all want to see you before they can give you a price. They do the same for regular crowns but if you have a dental discount plan, the price is set and they charge what it says, so if they do not need to see you, why do the ones that do not take insurance.
All I ask is what does an implant cost as long as no bone graph is needed or sinus lif is needed but they still give me a Hugh range. Than many do not disclose to you about the abutment. Than they tell you , that is needed and it may have to be made custom. BS.
Where I get my implants, I am given the abutment and I take it to the dentist to have the crown made. I have never needed a custom abutment. Most want 1000.00 to 2000.00 for the crown, like it is different than the regular crown. It is no different.
I have paid anywhere between 450.00 to 800.00 and spoke to the labs that make them and they tell me there is no difference. I called Clear Choice and got the same spiel and a cost of 5000.00 to 8000.00 per implant. Yes if you need a bone graft it cost more but not like they say or if you need a sinus lift, it may add 600.00 to 1000.00 but to do a regular implant and crown, its not a big deal. They make it sound like a big deal, but it is not.
DO research, ask for a price before you go, or if you have time, go in and waste there time and listen to all there lies and walk out and say, you can screw someone else but not me.
At there prices, all they need to do is a few a week. Clear Rip Off
Reason of review: Pricing issue.
