You may picture a princess with a sparkling, dazzling smile. Todd Shatkin met a patient years ago who had come to the office in hopes of creating a smile worthy of royalty, and that he did. Alicia dubbed herself the toothless princess after going viral on TikTok for showing off the snap-in dentures Dr. Shatkin placed for her.
Please keep reading to get to know Princess Glitterhead and the life-changing treatment that Dr. Todd Shatkin provided her, much reminiscent of Cinderella’s magical transformation at the hands of her fairy godmother.
We’d be glad to schedule your free consultation with Dr. Todd Shatkin if you would like your very own happily ever after smile transformation.
The Story of the Toothless Princess
Alicia was cavity-free for 18 years of her life. She had a gorgeous smile that she showed off when she got married at 20 years of age. Shortly after her wedding, Alicia and her husband decided to add to their family. She was pregnant at 21 years of age, and this started a nightmare experience for her dental health.
Pregnancy did a number on her teeth. She began to lose teeth that appeared to have rotted from the inside out. The teeth would fall out of her mouth, and upon inspecting them, it was clear that nothing was left inside them.
With every addition to her beautiful family, her teeth suffered. She felt like her life was over. She worried about her husband leaving her because she didn’t have the perfect smile she once had before.
While nursing her fourth and last baby, our toothless princess had reached a breaking point. She developed Hashimoto’s Disease, an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation and attacks the thyroid gland.
She had bridges and crowns in her mouth at this time, which had finally begun to abscess and cause more harm than good. It was time for her fairy godmother, or in this case, father, to step in and give her the life-changing treatment she needed.
At the age of 34, Alicia received snap-in dentures from Dr. Shatkin.
Since this treatment, she has taken to the social media app, TikTok, and gone viral with her videos about the snap-in dentures that helped her regain her confidence and get her life back. She’s been living happily ever after as a social media influencer since.
Learn more about her story in a video that Refinery29 did about her and Dr. Shatkin in 2021.
How Mini Dental Implants Change Lives
Dr. Shatkin is a leading cosmetic dentist who has been treating patients with missing and damaged teeth for decades. Mini dental implants are a highly sought-after treatment that can help patients regain their confidence and boost their self-esteem.
Mini dental implants can be used to replace single teeth in a day. They are also used to hold dental bridges or snap in dentures like the toothless princess wears every day.
You may be interested in mini dental implants if you want a less invasive, less expensive, and quicker treatment than conventional dental implants.
