Patient Testimonials“Having this procedure took a weight off of my shoulders regarding my dental future.”

“I had extensive dental and bridge work in the 1970s and 1980s and the bridges were aging. I lost an anchor tooth for a bottom left, four-tooth bridge that I had since the 1980s. I was already missing a few bottom right teeth, which really hampered chewing.

“Dr. Rapoport clearly explained my options to improve my dental health. Dr. Rapoport is very easy to talk to and understand. I trust his experience.

“I am retired and have no dental insurance. I am like many people who don’t look forward to dental work. I basically needed to decide between two options for repairing my teeth: install one or two implants and build a new bridge or partial that would have possibly loosened the teeth it was attached to over time or put in four implants that attached to new teeth. This is the option I chose.

“After several preparation appointments, all procedures were completed in one day. The team of Dr. Rapoport of Pacific Northwest Periodontics, the anesthesiologist and all of their assistants was very caring, gentle and professional. I would highly recommend the team with Dr. Rapoport at the head.

“My chewing function is much improved. Having this procedure took a weight off of my shoulders regarding my dental future.”

—Tina

Patient Testimonials“Dr. Rapoport and his entire staff were there for me, making me feel assured and comfortable.”

“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.”

“I was able to return to work the next day.”

“I was a smoker for 10 years. Regular tobacco use combined with the braces I wore as a teen caused bone loss and short roots. A few years ago, my first molar went bad. I had a terrible toothache and Dr. Schuler was able to extract the tooth for me. Three months later he placed the implant without having to perform a sinus lift! Amen.

“This year my lower left tooth developed a periodontal abscess due to bone loss. Dr. Rapoport was able to extract the tooth and place an immediate implant the same day! The healing was much better than the toothache, and I was able to return to work the next day.

“I am looking forward to having the restoration placed on the lower left next year. It has been four weeks and I hardly remember it happened.”

—Val
