How are the total costs calculated?
The total costs of the treatment for dentures differ greatly per treatment. They depend, among other things, on the number of teeth to be extracted and the prosthesis to be placed or the adjustments to it. The dental rates that DentalZorg charges for treatments for dentures are in line with the market. These rates are determined annually by the Dutch Healthcare Authority (NZa).

Reimbursement of dentures from your health insurance

Complete dentures are reimbursed from the basic insurance and in most cases a personal contribution of 25% applies. In this situation, we assume that you no longer have your own teeth and that it concerns a standard denture. The situations may differ from person to person.

The other costs fall under the personal contribution (not to be confused with your deductible) which you must pay yourself. In addition, the basic insurance almost never reimburses the costs of partial dentures (partial dentures).

Reimbursement of dentures under the additional dental insurance
When your dentist determines that teeth must be extracted, these costs are calculated per tooth or molar. Your basic insurance does not cover these costs. These costs can be reimbursed if you have additional dental insurance.

Otherwise you pay these costs yourself. The personal contribution for your dentures can also be partially or fully covered by additional dental insurance. Please note that the reimbursement varies per health insurer. Many health insurers also have a maximum amount that will be reimbursed.

To give you an impression of how much an average denture costs, we have prepared a calculation example with an indication of your own contribution. In this calculation example we have not included the costs for possible extractions and the reimbursements from your additional dental insurance.

Reimbursement from basic insurance€ 968,25

The average cost of your dentures in 2022 is € 1,291. Your basic insurance reimburses 75% of the costs for your complete denture, or €968.25. The remaining 25% of € 322.75 falls under the statutory personal contribution. You will ultimately pay this amount yourself.

Deductible in 2022

Do not forget your deductible when calculating. In 2022, this amount has been set by the government at € 385. You may have to add this amount to the personal contribution if you have not yet used the deductible.

We can then immediately start your treatment.

How do I know what my health insurer reimburses?

When you receive the budget, we advise you to ask your own health insurer what it reimburses from the basic and possibly from the supplementary dental insurance. We have no insight into the policies and additional conditions of the health insurers.
