Dental Implants

Missing teeth have a negative effect on the appearance of your smile and your ability to bite, chew, and speak.

Dental implants fill the gaps left by missing teeth and provide a secure foundation for natural-looking crowns, bridges, or dentures.

The expert dentists at Ridgewood Dental Associates can restore your smile with dental implants at our Ridgewood, NJ, practice.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots. They are usually made of biocompatible titanium. Our dentists can surgically insert implants through your gums and into your jawbone. Over time, dental implants fuse with your bone and become part of your anatomy. They are then able to support dental restorations like crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Ridgewood Dental has been phenomenal while working with me through an extremely complicated dental procedure. During the course of a full upper reconstruction I had a medical issue arise. The team at ridgewood dental worked through it with me and were so compassionate and caring it made me really appreciate their practice. It is one thing to be great at dental work, which they are, but it is much more to show your patients care and concern.

I transitioned to Ridgewood Dental Associates following the unexpected retirement of both my dentist & my periodontist (right in the middle of some major dental work). Dr Joung seamlessly assumed my treatment and completed my dental implants with the utmost care and expertise. RDA has become my one-stop practice for all my dental needs. The entire practice is professional, efficient, pleasant, and caring, and treats its patients with the most modern techniques & procedures. Very happy to be an RDA client!

Rediscover Your Smile With Dental Implants

Dental implants are the top choice for tooth replacement. Dr. Joung explains the dental implant process, starting with determining if you are a good candidate for implants. 

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Jawbone Support

Tooth loss results in the loss of jawbone density over time. By providing a new root structure, dental implants prevent bone loss and restore normal bite function.

Long-Lasting Results

According to the Institute for Dental Implant Awareness, dental implants have a 95% success rate for long-term use. With proper care and oral hygiene, dental implant posts can last 40 years or longer.

Remarkable Bite Stability

Crowns, bridges, and dentures supported by implants are securely anchored in place. Patients can bite, chew, and speak without risk of slippage. No denture creams or adhesives are needed to have a strong smile.

Improved Self-Confidence

Jawbone atrophy and tooth loss affect your facial features. The inability to eat certain foods can also impact your self-image. Dental implants restore your confidence and independence, helping you look and feel younger.

Very polite staff and I'm comfortable going there with the covid protocols in place. They are also great in follow up with the insurance company. Dr. Joung is thorough and I feel confident in the care I'm receiving as he explains things and makes sure to answer all my questions. Really appreciate that there is a separate room where you deal with the financial aspects and next appointments, as opposed to in the general waiting area in front of others like some other offices I've been in.

Everyone I came in contact with at RDA was extraordinarily friendly, and professional. A huge thanks to Dr. Samani, who restored both my smile, and my confidence! I would highly recommend RDA to anyone, and am beyond elated with my experience!

Dental Implants Offer Flexible Treatment Options We Can Provide Both Traditional Implants and All-on-4

Dental implants offer solutions for patients missing just one tooth or a complete arch of natural teeth. Whatever your needs, our dentistry practice can provide you with a beautiful, functioning smile.

Traditional Dental Implants

traditional implant

Traditional implant dentistry involves placing an implant where there used to be a tooth root. The process requires two oral surgeries. The first oral surgery places the implant, with a second surgery later to place the abutment. If you lack sufficient jawbone density, you'll need an additional preliminary grafting surgery.

All-on-4® Dental Implants

All-on-4 dental implants are designed to support a full denture for people missing most or all of their teeth. With All-on-4, the implants are placed in a single oral surgery, with no need for separate abutment placement. Only four implants are used, strategically placed in order to make the most out of the patient's jawbone structure (bone grafting is usually not required).

Types of Dental Implants

Alternatives to traditional dental implants can provide patients with quicker treatment timelines, improved eligibility, and include:

Immediate Load Implants

Immediate load dental implants allow our dentists to place a temporary restoration following implant placement. This provides you with a restored smile in a single appointment. The temporary restoration will be switched out for a permanent crown once the healing process is complete. While immediate load implants are a quick way to fill the gap in your smile, they are reserved for patients with good jawbone density.

Mini Dental Implants

Much slimmer than traditional implants, mini implants require less-invasive surgery and are typically used to stabilize a set of lower dentures. Mini implants are a good option for you if you are missing most or all of your teeth and have low jawbone density. It is important to keep in mind that because of their size, mini implants cannot withstand the same biting forces and chewing pressure as traditional implants.

Dental Implant Restorations

Dental Crowns

The gap left by a missing tooth can be effectively replaced with a single dental implant and a durable dental crown.

Dental Bridges

Using two implants placed on either side of the gap in your smile, an implant-supported bridge can restore up to four consecutive missing teeth.

Whether you are missing numerous teeth or a complete dental arch, a partial or full denture can comfortably address your needs.

Dental Implants Enhance Smiles and Revitalize Oral Health

The dentists of Ridgewood Dental Associates have changed so many lives thanks to implant dentistry. Here is a case study so you can see the benefits of dental implants in action.

What to Expect From Implant Placement to Final Restoration

The traditional dental implant process from beginning to end lasts about four to seven months. Here is an overview of the important steps in the treatment process:

Placing the Implant

The initial oral surgery involves securely anchoring the titanium implant into the jawbone. A temporary implant restoration may be provided at this early stage of treatment.
Placing the Implant


In the three to six months after surgery, the titanium implant fuses with the surrounding bone. This is known as "osseointegration" and is essential for implant success.

Placing the Abutment

Abutments are placed in a second surgery after osseointegration is complete. The abutments are visible through the gums, connecting the implant with the final restoration.
Placing the Abutment

Final Restoration

Once the gums have healed around the abutment, we can place the final custom crown, bridge, or denture. The results are a testament to the effectiveness of modern dentistry.
