During regular monitoring problems can be prevented and, if necessary, the fit (rebasing) can be adjusted. This is especially important if the teeth are extracted recently. With a full denture your jaws shrink over time. Usually, the lower jaw shrinks faster than the upper jaw. This causes the denture to loosen or creating problems. If your denture is older than 5 to 7 years, a replacement of the denture may be needed.

Once your denture is ready, you visit the oral surgeon to pull your teeth and after it place the denture directly onto your jaw.

It used to be the case that the patient, after extraction of their natural teeth, walked around toothless for about three months. Nowadays, this is fortunately no longer needed. By placing an initital full denture ( immediaat) immediately after extraction, the toothless patient can participate instantly again in the society.This denture is an emergency temporary denture designed for about the first year, and will need to be adjusted (rebased) after 3 or 4 months.

If your denture is too loose (or pinches), your denture is measured again and adjusted to fit your jaw properly.

If due to caries (cavities) and gum disorders you lost some teeth, it may be decided, upon advise of the dentist, to opt for a partial denture. A partial denture is a removable denture replacing one or more teeth. This may be your preference, if you do not want your lost teeth to be replaced by a bridge, crown or implant. Such a denture can be taken out from the mouth, but bridges, crowns or implants cannot.

A full denture has a personal contribution of 10%. Repair of a partial denture is not covered by the health insurance, but under the supplementary insurance and thus depends on your insurance conditions. Please contact us, we are able to give you detailed information about it.

An implant is similar to an artificial root. It is made of titanium, a light and strong metal, which is also tissue-friendly. The implant is a small screw inserted into the jaw and the jaw bone will grow to attach itself to it. Thus, an implant replaces the missing tooth root. The implant provides a firm basis for a crown, bridge or click-denture.

There are a number of cases where it is not preferred to apply implants:

  • Heavy smoking is harmful to implants and is bad for the wound healing. There is a three times greater risk of failure of an implant.
  • Sometimes your jaw bone is too small for a firm attachment of the implant. This can be treated with bone filler, but the treatment is going to take a long time.
  • Not everyone wants an implant. If you have a good jaw, a normal denture is obviously a good option. If your jaws shrunk a lot and your current denture has loosened, an implant is a good solution.
  • For adolescents whose jaw is still growing (16-18 years), no implants will be placed. Besides that, your (old) age is not important for the success of a treatment.

Small holes will be drilled into the jaw under local anesthesia, in which the "artificial root" is applied. Until your jaw has securely grown around the implant you will first carry your "old" denture or temporary crown. Due to the stitches it will not really sit comfortably in the first week, but at least you will not have to go outside toothless.

In most cases, your jaw naturally grows attaching itself to the implant. If this would not be the case, a new implant could be inserted.

Yes, the healing process takes a few days till a week to complete. For example, slight bleeding afterwards, slight tingling in the lower jaw, numbness of the lower lip. These symptoms usually disappear quickly. Also short discoloration of mucosa, cheeks or lips as well as swelling may occur. These symptoms often disappear by itself within a week.

Implants can safely last for 30 years. Studies have shown that 90% of the placed implants still function after 30 years. It mainly depends on regular monitoring and proper oral hygiene. For example, by gnashing one’s teeth, poor oral hygiene, illness or nicotine usage an implant can sometimes loosen.

At the very least, brushing twice a day, just like your natural teeth. We also strongly recommend using toothpicks and flossing, because it extends the lifetime of your implants. After we have secured your implants, we will go through the best oral hygiene instructions with you.

No, but your implants must be checked annually by a dentist implantologist, so that any problems can be identified in a timely manner and can get treated. The implantologist checks also the bone around your implants through an X-ray.
