Real Patient Stories
“I had an upper denture for over 40 years and was missing a front bottom tooth for five years and I finally decided to go in and get it fixed. Dr. Rapoport asked me if I wanted upper implants. I told him that I hadn't been a good candidate 20 years ago but he said that technology had changed and that I am a great candidate for the All-on-4 procedure.
“I thought about it for five or six seconds and said, 'Okay, let's do it!'
“It was nice going in, falling asleep and waking up and it's all done. No pain! Dr. Rapoport and his entire staff were there for me, making me feel assured and comfortable.
“I like Dr. Rapoport's quiet, self-assured confident manner. He is a wonderful person and an even better surgeon. His staff are very helpful and happy that I'm here. They want the best for my dental health and they are all fun to be around.
“For me there are several BIG benefits that I have now got back. The roof of my mouth. Better taste. Self-esteem. And not having a big piece of plastic floating around in my mouth! All the benefits I have received after the All-on-4 are too numerous to mention but all are important to me.
“Every day is now changed for the better for me and I am so grateful that technology has changed and that Dr. Rapoport has made my life more enjoyable. There are no words that can truly express my feelings and thoughts about not having to put up with a denture any longer.
“The All-on-4 procedure is truly a life-changing experience and I'm lucky to have Dr. Rapoport with me on this part of my life's journey. Thank you to Dr. Rapoport and his entire staff. I would recommend this procedure to anyone and everyone.”
“My implant experience with Dr. Rapoport and his staff was outstanding. They were great at communicating each step of the process so I really felt like I was in good hands all the way through. Dr. Rapoport is thoughtful, thorough, skilled and attentive.”
“Dr. Rapoport is very enthusiastic about his work, yet very intelligent in the field. He is very down-to-earth and his step-by-step explanations for scheduling and treatment is very helpful.
“Everyone is so welcoming, they give a really comforting feeling from when you walk in, all the way through the procedure, to the follow-up appointments.
“Dr. Rapoport's work allowed me to have greater confidence in my smile in the professional world, especially right before college!”
“Now I don't have to worry about dentures falling out when I eat or sneeze!”
“I found out from my dentist that my teeth couldn't be saved and he recommended me to Dr. Rapoport. From day one Dr. Rapoport and his staff made me feel that I had made the right choice. I never felt afraid to ask questions.
“I knew it would take time for each step but I was committed. My experience was better than I expected and the results were amazing.
“Dr. Rapoport made me a whole person again. I trusted him with each step, which wasn't always easy emotionally. I live a normal life again without pain. I love to smile again!”
