Failed Consultations and False Promises: One All-on-X Patient’s Story of Hope


Welcome back to another glorious day here at the Smile Mentor community! Today is a special day as we delve into a heartfelt video that holds great significance to me. I’m Matt Griffin, also known as the Smile Mentor, and I want to share with you the story behind this project.

This entire venture was born out of my deep connection with my mother. She was the catalyst, the driving force behind the inception of this project. Whether you have a loving mother or are a mother looking out for your child, especially when it comes to dental issues like implants and the all-on-four or all-on-x procedures, this video is for you.

For over 20 years, my mom endured the challenges of wearing dentures. The constant resorption and discomfort she experienced motivated her to seek a better solution. She needed both upper and lower implants, but her case was far from ordinary. The complexity of her situation required the doctor to perform a zygomatic procedure. This intricate technique involves working with the zygomatic bones, which are essentially the cheekbones. Guided surgery was necessary, considering the limited bone availability. The process was no easy feat, but she successfully underwent it.

However, her journey did not come without its fair share of obstacles. In this video, you will have the opportunity to hear her story, learn about our family history, and experience the emotions tied to this dental transformation. I wanted to share her story to shed light on the challenges faced by so many mothers out there. The feelings of hopelessness, embarrassment, and shame that can accompany such experiences are not uncommon. If you’ve been through similar struggles, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

But here’s the crucial reminder: you are not alone. The Smile Mentor community is here to offer support, encouragement, and hope. We understand the significance of having a network of individuals who can relate to your journey. So, I invite you to listen to this heartwarming conversation between a mother and son as they open up about their dental history, the motivation behind this project, and why it is so important to us to help every mom out there.
