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.

Rediscover Your Smile With Dental Implants

Dental implants offer the closet alternative to your natural teeth. Dr. Joung explains the dental implant process, starting with determining if you are a good candidate for implants. Ridgewood Dental Associates specializes in dental implants and is a hub for training other dentists in how to perform this life-changing treatment.

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

denture going on four implants

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).

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 utilized to stabilize a set of low 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 Crown

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

Dental Bridge

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.

Learn About Implant-Supported Bridges

Denture

Whether you are missing numerous teeth or a complete dental arch, a partial or full denture can address the needs of patients missing more than four consecutive teeth.

Learn About Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant Placement Options

Endosteal Implants

The most common type of dental implant, endosteal implants are placed directly into the jawbone tissue. Endosteal implants protect your jawbone from further atrophy but require good bone density. If you have low bone density, you may require a bone graft before placing endosteal implants.

Subperiosteal Implants

If you do not have the bone density to support endosteal implants, subperiosteal implants can be placed on or above the jawbone. Subperiosteal implants are a good option if you are not interested in rebuilding your jawbone with preparatory treatments such as a bone graft.

You don't have to live with the embarrassment and painful symptoms that accompany tooth loss. Our doctors have the experience, knowledge, and advanced technology to restore your oral health and enhance the appearance of your smile with dental implants.

Dental Implants Enhance Smiles and Revitalize Oral Health

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.

Osseointegration

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.
