World-Class Dental Implants at Pacific Northwest Periodontics
For 40 years, Pacific Northwest Periodontics has served as Seattle’s most sought-after provider of exceptional patient care and the most advanced solutions to save teeth, gums and bone instead of losing them to common oral health problems. If you are looking for a compassionate, transparent dental team with the highest level of certified skill and experience for the best results, you are in the right place. Our periodontists and staff will exceed your expectations.
Dr. Rapoport and Dr. Schuler have elite training, experience and accreditation as board-certified Diplomates of the American Board of Periodontology, an achievement that validates their knowledge and insights as highly-skilled experts in implant dentistry and the treatment of periodontal disease that is unmatched by 90 percent of periodontists in the Seattle area and across North America.
Selecting a board-certified diplomate for treatment of gum disease or the placement of dental implants can save you substantial time, money and pain. Our periodontists offer the widest range of options for dental implants, including solutions you may not have known were possible that can save your natural teeth when others may have not known there was a way to do so.
Caring by nature, our dentists understand that dental treatment may cause nervous or anxious feelings for some patients. We offer IV sedation dentistry that allows our patients to undergo treatment comfortably. By administering safe sedation medications, we can help those patients achieve a deeply relaxed state in which they cannot feel any pain or discomfort.
Dental Implant Tooth Replacement Options for Every Smile
Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. They restore the look, feel and function of a natural, healthy tooth.
With the proper oral hygiene and routine professional care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Improved confidence: Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant allows you to recapture a complete, healthy-looking smile and maintain a youthful appearance. You no longer need to feel self-conscious, anxious or depressed about gaps in your smile. Instead, you can feel confident and comfortable in your own skin.
Improved function: Implants are incredibly strong and can withstand normal biting or chewing forces. You can bite into a crisp apple or eat a delicious steak without worrying about your implant loosening or shifting around in your mouth. Implants do not restrict your speech in any way.
Improved oral health: Implants promote oral health in many ways. As you bite and chew on your implant, the titanium post provides the same bone stimulation as a natural tooth root; this keeps your jawbone healthy and strong, and prevents complications such as bone loss and premature aging of the facial features. Replacing a missing tooth with an implant also prevents the remaining teeth from shifting around in the mouth, wearing down or becoming crooked.
Versatility: Dental implants can replace one or all of the teeth in your mouth. They can serve as anchors for dental crowns, dental bridges or partial or complete dentures.
