I have a full upper denture , I also have a lower partal all rear teeth missing, 4 on the right rear lower, 3 on left rear lower. I went to Clear CHoice to see about the all on 4 and what to do on my lowers. I cannot afford Clear Choice. I have looked in to going to Costa Rica where I can afford there services. Is it safe or what do you recomend.

We’ve had e-mails from several people who have gone down to Costa Rica or Mexico for dental care, trying to save money, and it has ended up costing them double and has become almost a nightmare, with repeated trips while the dentist tries to get it right, and the dentist may never actually get it right. It’s easy to get complacent here in the United States about our health care system, and sometimes, until we go abroad, we don’t realize how good we have it. The standards of care in Costa Rica are not anything near what they are here, and when something goes wrong, you often have no recourse except the good will of the dentist.
With dental implants, there is so much that can go wrong, and when something goes wrong, it can be extremely serious. What if you were to lose your jawbone – what would you do then? What if they puncture your sinus or the floor of your nose? Don’t do it. You may be better off doing nothing than doing that.
Clear Choice, in their marketing, gives an impression that they are inexpensive, but in fact, from what I’ve seen, they are quite expensive. And they tend to give you one option only. My advice is to find a qualified implant dentist who is willing to consider various implant options for stabilizing a denture. You may be surprised at how affordable they can make it, if the dentist is flexible and you have the full spectrum of options given to you.
