Implant surgery offers a practical and long-term solution for the loss of a tooth or molar. An artificial root replaces the absent tooth root, after which a bridge, crown, or snap-in denture is placed on top of the titanium root to replace the tooth or molar. We work with top brands such as Astra and Straumann to ensure optimum results. Not satisfied with your crown? We’ll make a new one for you, free of charge. Our expert implant surgeon will work according to a treatment plan tailored to your needs. Patients report a relaxed atmosphere at our practice and rate our staff a 9,1. on Zorgkaart Nederland.
A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium, placed in the jaw as a safe and permanent replacement for the tooth’s root. A crown, bridge, or dentures can be placed on top of the implant. Dental implants are a good solution for:
An implant can only be placed when the jawbone is fully grown. This is usually the case around the 18th year of life. In addition, you must meet the following requirements:
The above components are checked by means of a mouth inspection and an overview photo. If there is not enough jawbone present, the implantologist may choose to place new artificial bone in the missing areas.
We go through the treatment process step-by-step to ensure you are well prepared for treatment. The implant surgeon will also explain and discuss the treatment as they perform it. If anything is unclear, please feel free to contact our dental practice in Amsterdam-West. Our staff will be happy to help you.
The costs surrounding the placement of implants are determined annually by the Nederlandse Zorgautoriteit. For the most current prices we would like to refer you to our rate overview. You can find the costs under the code J in the pdf.
An implant, crown or bridge is not covered by the basic insurance, even if you are younger than 18 years. A click denture, on the other hand, is covered by the basic insurance. In order to be eligible for a (full) reimbursement of an implant, crown or bridge, you should take out a supplementary dental insurance policy. Ask your health insurer if your implantology treatment will be reimbursed.
Because we often receive the same questions about implantology, we have answered the most frequently asked questions below for you. Is your question not listed? Please contact us, so that we can still answer it.
Implants are made of a very strong material and therefore will last a lifetime. However, we always recommend good oral health. This means brushing your teeth twice a day and visiting us regularly for a periodic checkup.
We use implants to fill empty spaces in the teeth when teeth and/or molars are missing. An implant serves as an artificial root in the jawbone and feels natural. Crowns and bridges we use to repair damaged or broken teeth and/or molars. Before we can place the crowns and bridges, it is necessary to grind the existing teeth and/or molars.
No, having implants placed is not painful. Before we start the treatment, we provide a local anesthetic. To prevent pain after the treatment we recommend taking paracetamol or ibuprofen.
How long the treatment takes depends on several factors, namely the state of the jaw bone and the type of implant. How long the healing takes after the treatment depends on your own health.
Implants, crowns, and bridges are not covered by basic insurance, even if you are under 18 years of age. To qualify for (full) reimbursement of dental implant fees, you must take out supplementary dental insurance. Ask your insurance provider whether your implant treatment will be reimbursed.
