The Factors Affecting the Cost of Dental Implants

When you have a missing tooth, you may feel self-conscious about how you look when you talk, sing or smile. You may also have trouble eating certain types of foods, especially hard, tough or chewy foods like steak, celery, and carrots. Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing a missing tooth. They look and feel like a natural tooth, and people will not notice that you have an implant. Each dental implant is custom-made for the patient.

The process of getting a dental implant is simple and requires a few visits to our dental specialist. On the first visit, we take X-rays and impressions. This gives us an idea of the amount of jaw bone mass you have, which is a big determinant of the implant process. Some patients will need a bone graft to build up the jaw bone mass for supporting the post of the implant. The second stage is the placement of the titanium post into your jaw. Your jaw bone cells grow around the post, anchoring it in place. The third step is the placement of the customized artificial tooth crown.

The dental implant cost in Milwaukee depends on a few factors. If you need a bone graft, this could increase the cost. If you are having other dental work done at the same time, this could also increase the total cost. The average price for a single implant is $5,000 to $10,000. Most dental insurance companies do not cover the cost of a dental implant. Patients who need to finance the dental implant can work with us for payment options.
