3 Reasons to Choose Dental Implants
Protect Your Natural Teeth
Traditional methods of tooth replacement such as dental crowns and dental bridges require alteration to your surrounding teeth. By choosing dental implants, you can leave your healthy teeth intact but still enjoy a complete smile.
Support Your Jawbone
Jawbone recession is one of the negative consequences of tooth loss. But dental implants help stimulate your jawbone, keeping it healthy and strong. By maintaining a healthy bone structure, you can also keep your features looking young.
Stabilize Your Dentures
Removable dentures can make uncomfortable smacking noises or slip out of place. Dental implants attach dentures directly to the jaw, preventing embarrassing moments for denture wearers.

Before Recommending Implants, Our Dentist Will Evaluate Your Oral & Overall Health
Thanks to advancements in dentistry, virtually all patients with missing teeth are candidates for dental implants. However, there are certain factors that can affect the success of your surgery, including:
Poor Jawbone Density
For the best results, implants need to be placed in sufficient bone tissue. If you have some degree of bone loss due to tooth loss or facial trauma, a dentist can perform bone grafting or a sinus lift to augment your jawbone.
Smoking hinders wound healing and increases the risk of complications during surgery. If you are a smoker considering dental implants, you should quit the habit as soon as possible.
Compromised Oral Health
If you have active tooth decay, gum disease, or a root canal infection, you may need to undergo additional dental treatments or tooth extractions prior to implant surgery. You will also need to commit to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits in the future.
Certain Medical Conditions
Chronic health conditions like diabetes, connective tissue diseases, and immune deficiencies can also affect your ability to heal properly. Before recommending implants, Dr. Rassouli will review your health history and ask about any medications you are taking.
If you are pregnant, you should postpone your implant surgery until after your delivery date.
Most patients who come to our Portland, OR, practice are good candidates for surgery, and those who are not can typically improve their candidacy with the help of our doctor. As a highly trained restorative dentist, Dr. Rassouli can provide the preparatory dental treatment you need to improve your candidacy for implants.
Looking for an Implant Dentist? Here's Why You Should Choose Dr. Rassouli
Many dentists in Portland offer dental implants, but most of them do not possess the training and experience that Dr. Rassouli does. After dental school, Dr. Rassouli completed a two-year training program in fixed, removable, and implant prosthodontics. He also received a specialty certificate and Masters of Science degree in Prosthodontics, so he is uniquely qualified to care for missing teeth.

When you visit Dr. Rassouli for dental implants, you can rest assured knowing that you are getting the best care possible.

Just had my wisdom teeth removed yesterday afternoon and it's easy to tell the doctor takes special care with his work and really made sure I was comfortable before the procedure started. Best experience I've had at a dentist to date. 10/10
