ProSmile patient, Jesse shares his incredible journey to regain his confidence and improve his quality of life. Struggling with broken, cracked, and infected teeth, Jesse was unable to eat anything solid and was losing weight. But after exploring several options and choosing snap-in dentures, Jesse's life was completely transformed. He went from eating like an 80-year-old with no teeth to finally being able to eat like a normal person again. In this patient testimonial video, Jesse shares his life-changing experience and the impact snap-in dentures have had on his health and happiness.
Overcoming the Tooth Loss Challenge with Snap-In Dentures
Snap-in dentures, also known, removable implant-supported dentures, or implant overdentures offer a permanent solution for missing or damaged teeth. This innovative technology provides a secure, comfortable fit and allows patients to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
Oral health plays a crucial role in overall well-being and impacts everything from physical health to mental health. According to recent statistics, over 30% of Arizona residents aged 65 and older are missing all of their natural teeth, highlighting the need for effective tooth replacement options. Snap-in dentures provide a long-lasting, natural-looking solution that can greatly improve a person's quality of life and overall health
Wondering If Implant Dentures Are Right For You?
The Impact of Broken Teeth on Eating Quality
Missing, broken, or decaying teeth can have a significant impact on an individual's eating quality and overall health and nutrition. When a person experiences difficulty eating due to dental problems, they often avoid solid foods and instead rely on soft, unhealthy options. This can lead to malnutrition and weight loss. Additionally, untreated dental issues can cause chronic pain and infections that can negatively impact overall health and wellbeing. The importance of addressing oral health issues cannot be overstated, as it is a crucial component of maintaining a healthy, balanced diet and overall well-being.
Jesse shares, “My main issue, the reason why I came in, is my quality of eating. I was having a terrible time eating anything solid. It was really affecting my health. I was losing weight.
I'm 39 years old. I was eating like an 80-year-old with no teeth. Half of my teeth were broken, cracked, and infected, and there's just no way around it. The quality of eating is the biggest thing for me. I mean, I was never super self-conscious, so the smile thing is fantastic, but for me, it's not as big as eating. The eating thing is a big, big thing for me. Being able to just eat normal, go into a restaurant, and eat normal food.”
Experienced Team at ProSmile Helps Patients Make the Right Teeth Replacement Choice
When it comes to teeth replacement options, there are several options to choose from including traditional dentures, snap-in or removable implant dentures, and permanent implant denture solutions like the all-on-4. Traditional dentures are the most well-known option, but they can be uncomfortable and unreliable, often slipping or causing discomfort.
Snap-in dentures, on the other hand, are a more secure and comfortable option as they are designed to "snap” into place, eliminating the need for adhesives. For those seeking a more permanent solution, the all-on-4 uses four dental implants to provide a permanent, fixed replacement for an entire arch of missing teeth. Each of these options offers its own benefits and drawbacks, and the best choice will depend on individual needs and preferences.

Snap-In Implant Dentures: A Stress-Free Procedure with Expert Care
The process of receiving snap-in dentures at ProSmile Dental Implant Center is designed to be stress-free and comfortable for patients. From start to finish, patients receive care from a highly trained and experienced team, including a cosmetic dentist, oral surgeon, and anesthesiologist. Patients who are anxious or fearful about the procedure have the option of receiving sedation, helping them to relax and feel at ease during the process.
General IV sedation delivered by ProSmile’s in-house anesthesiologist made Jesse’s dental surgery experience as comfortable as possible.
He shares, “I went in for the removal and the implants all at once. They put me under and I woke up to what to me felt like a minute later. I literally remember waking up and asking the nurse, "Hey, when are we going to start?" And she's like, ‘Oh honey, we're done and everything is finished.’”
How Do Snap-In Implant Dentures Compare With Traditional Dentures?
Jesse’s experience highlights the vast difference between traditional dentures and snap-in implant supported dentures.
He recounts his experience with traditional dentures while waiting for his snap-in implants to heal, stating "The difference between normal dentures and snap-in implant supported dentures is night and day."
Snap-in dentures are a permanent solution that provide better stability and allow patients to regain the ability to eat a healthy and nutritious diet, free from the limitations and discomfort caused by traditional dentures.
“I can take a bite into an apple, I can eat corn on the cob, I can chew meat, I can pull and tear. They're locked in, they don't go anywhere. I pop them out at night, wash them, soak them, put them back in my mouth in the morning, and they're in all day. I don't have to worry about food particles, I don't have to worry about glue or creams, and they just feel more natural. They feel great.I can eat real food. I haven't had a steak in probably 10 years. I had a New York strip last week. The quality of eating is excellent for me. I gained my weight back. I'm not underweight anymore. I'm more healthy.”

The benefits of snap-in dentures go beyond just improved eating ability, as they also enhance the overall quality of life for patients.
Jesse continues, “And of course, I love my smile. The confidence level of being able to smile is amazing. I've hid my teeth my whole life. I was always closed-mouth smiling and always covering my mouth. Now, I don't have to worry about that at all.”

I would say to people that are scared to come into the dentist, don't be. I mean, I was terrified and coming in really alleviated that fear.
