Many patients have broken, decayed, or missing teeth, and they often see a general dentist to seek dentistry treatment.

Dentists can treat these conditions, but prosthodontists specialize in the design, fabrication, and placement of crowns, bridges, and more.

At Ridgewood Dental Associates in Ridgewood, NJ, we have undergone advanced training in prosthodontics to provide the best results. 

What Is a Prosthodontist?

Prosthodontics is a dental specialty that manages the planning, production, and implementation of artificial teeth. A prosthodontist undergoes advanced education and training, uses the latest techniques and technology, and can treat complex dental issues.

We Are Leaders and Mentors

Your teeth impact almost every aspect of your life. From eating to speaking, they play an essential role in your happiness and health.

That's why you should only trust a knowledgeable, experienced prosthodontist to replace or repair your teeth.

Trust your care to the team that other dentistry professionals depend on to expand their skill set. Ridgewood Dental Associates created the Ridgewood Implant Institute, which teaches dentists the latest techniques and procedures in prosthodontics. The institute also provides programs for patients to gather the information you need in order to decide the best way to rehabilitate your smile.

My experience at RDA surpassed exceptional including the work of the welcoming, friendly, patient, professional support staff. Dr. Joung provided sensitivity, patience, and the highest level of expertise while working with me to create a restoration that met my absolute approval. Dentists and professional staff constantly tell me that they are unable to identify which tooth was restored following the implant. I am forever grateful to Dr. Joung and recommend him highly without reservation.

Why Choose a Prosthodontist Over a Dentist?

Inexperience Can Put Your Oral Health at Risk

Dental work completed purely for the sake of aesthetics is bound to fail early. Many of our competitors do quick work that looks nice at first; but when it simply masks underlying dental problems, it won't hold up. In other cases, restorations may be placed sloppily or incorrectly, which can create more problems for your teeth and oral health. In the end, the restorations may not last long, become damaged, or even fall out.

A Specialist Can Preserve Your Smile for Life

When you choose the prosthodontists at our Ridgewood, NJ, office, you can rest assured that quality and patient satisfaction are our top priorities. We focus solely on producing the most durable and longest-lasting results. No matter how simple or complicated your care plan, our experts know how to build a strong smile. With proper at-home care and routine checkups, it is not uncommon for our work to last a lifetime.

Quality Patient Care Is Our First Priority Ridgewood Dental Associates in Ridgewood, NJ

Just relocated from NYC and yesterday I had a very serious dental emergency so I called up RDA to see if they’d be willing to fit me in for an emergency appt even though I wasn’t a patient. They immediately gave me same day appointment and also fixed my issue without any hesitation.
