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.

Learn how 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.

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 percent success rate for long-term use. With proper care and oral hygiene, dental implants 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 solid foods can also impact your self-image. Dental implants restore your confidence and independence, helping you look and feel younger.

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

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

Traditional 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® is 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).

From the minute I walked through the door I felt that I was finally in the right place to have the years of neglecting my teeth attended to. I was introduced to the entire staff including both working partners. I felt like royalty and a member of their family.

So far I have had two implants, 1 bridge, and numerous cleanings. Each visit has been pleasant and everything explained to me is what was actually performed--no surprises. I would recommend RDA to anyone seeking the best in dentistry.

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.


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.

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.
