What Are Dental Implants and How Do They Work?
Dental implants are simple but effective devices that fit into your mouth, looking and functioning exactly like natural teeth. A dental implant is comprised of three parts: the post, the abutment and the crown. Drs. Schneider and Jacobs work with a team of highly skilled professionals to restore function and beauty to their patient's smiles. Our doctors first plan and design the implant restoration, the implant surgeon
then places the implant and our doctors then place the crown or bridge restoration.
After consulting with Dr. Herbert Schneider and Dr. Rachel Jacobs and deciding to get dental implants in Bergenfield, NJ, you will be scheduled for your first surgery. During this procedure, the implant surgeon will embed the post into the bone. After the first surgery, you will be allowed to heal for a few months, giving the bone time to fuse with the post.
At the second surgery, the abutment and a temporary crown will be added to the post. Drs. Schneider and Jacobs will also make sure that the site looks clean and free from bacteria and infection. After the second surgery, the permanent crown will be created. The third appointment is when the permanent crown is attached to the top of the abutment. This crown is made to look exactly like the teeth around it, matching their shape, size and color.
