Building a Strong and Healthy Foundation
Dental Implants Ridgewood
As the leaders in dental implant surgery and placement, Ridgewood Dental Associates is proud to use state-of-the-art implant material and techniques to restore the structure and function of smiles broken by injury, trauma, or decay. If your missing, decayed, broken, or failing teeth are causing physical and emotional problems for you, don't wait another day to ask us about dental implants. These small, yet durable titanium screws are surgically placed into the jawbone to provide incredibly strong support for natural-looking restorations such as crowns or bridges. Designed to mimic natural tooth roots, implants are safe, effective, and have the potential to last a lifetime. Contact our office in the Northern New Jersey today to schedule your first appointment.
Top-quality Dental Implants
Our team of doctors and implant experts have spent years placing and restoring dental implants and understand how important it is to choose the highest quality materials to produce the best results. For our patients' benefit, we are committed to using brands such as Straumannâ, Biocareä, and Zimmer; we don't use cheap or knock-off implants to save on costs.
How We Use Implants
There are a number of instances when dental implants are the best restorative option for a patient. Implants are versatile and reliable and when placed by our implantation team, they will dramatically improve your oral health, your smile's appearance, and your quality of life. We can use dental implants to:
- Support dentures
- Replace single teeth
- Support dental bridges
- Support overdentures
- Support All-on-4 restorations
- Provide teeth in an hour
Whether your oral health needs are simple or complex, Ridgewood Dental Associates does it all. Our team is complete with a certified periodontist and prosthodontist so we can treat the underlying causes of your condition rather than cover them up. By providing the oral surgery and prostheses in our own office, we can ensure the quality of your care from start to finish.
Preparing for Surgery
The incredible technology we use at Ridgewood Dental Associates gives us a foot up in dental implant surgery and helps us diagnose your condition quickly and accurately. During your consultation, a CT Scan will help us determine the best plan of action by providing us with an incredibly detailed picture of your jaw structure. Based on our observations, we will build a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan that will be carefully followed during your surgery.
Understanding the Benefits
If your smile is severely damaged or decayed, dental implants could completely change your life. The benefits of dental implant surgery are both aesthetic and practical. Weighing these benefits along with the potential risks can help you decide if implants are right for you.
Oral Health Benefits
Missing or severely decayed teeth can be detrimental to your oral health as well as your overall health. In the event of tooth loss, exposed sockets and gum tissue can collect dangerous decay- and disease-causing bacteria. These bacteria-ridden pockets can be difficult to clean and can cause pain when chewing certain foods. Leaving decay untreated may lead to further damage and even tooth loss. Replacing these teeth with dental implants gives your jawbone the support it needs while providing a strong, durable structure to your teeth to help you chew, eat, and speak normally.
If you've been living with an incomplete smile, then you must understand the feelings of embarrassment and self-consciousness that accompany a bad oral condition. Filling in the gaps left by missing teeth can give you a chance to have the straight, white, beautiful smile you've always dreamt of.
