About Snaptite Smile
What is a Snaptite Smile?
With only 4 implants, an entire arch of teeth are permanently replaced, restoring your ability to speak, genuinely taste and feel the textures of an unlimited diet and smile confidently.
Snaptite Smile is the answer to a devastated dentition.
Snaptite Smile Reverses Facial Collapse
Facial collapse occurs when you no longer have a firm foundation supporting cheeks and lips. Like a balloon losing air these tissues will collapse and fold over into the oral space. Snaptite Smile supports cheeks and lips and effectively reverses facial collapse. It can reverse the folds and wrinkles in your face because your new smile is firmly anchored by 4 dental implants to your existing jaw, mimicking a natural dentition

There’s a direct connection between oral disease and systemic disease.
It’s called your bloodstream.
Oral diseases are like cancer being able to spread from one part of the body to another. It’s smart medicine to treat the cause of disease and it’s vital to patient health. From heart disease to arthritis and dementia, bacteria, molds and fungi present in infected gums and teeth have been traced to these and other inflammatory conditions. By reducing pathogens in the mouth, the Snaptite Smile system gives patients a chance to get healthy and stay healthy.

Snaptite Smile Implants Preserve Bone
When you lose teeth, the jaw bone that supports them atrophies or shrinks and is lost forever. You see, stress from functional forces on your teeth are transferred into the jaw bone. In response to these stresses bone cells are activated and produce more, denser bone. Implants mimic your natural dentition by transferring functional forces into the jaw bone, which in turn stimulates bone cells to strengthen and maintain jaw bone volume for life.

Rock Solid Precision Snaptite Fittings
The Snaptite Smile design effectively eliminates the #1 cause of implant failure and systemic disease caused by oral infections. Utilizing precision snap fittings, Snaptite Smile allows 100% access to your implants so you can safely remove harmful bacterial, mold and fungal Biofilm that builds up daily and is exactly what caused the failure of your teeth in the first place. Never without a Drop-Dead-Gorgeous smile you wake up every morning, implants thoroughly clean & refreshed and knowing your health and investment are protected.

Technology lowers cost and improves quality!
While outdated screw retained Zirconium implant bridges are common this solution has several fundamental disadvantages.
Patient cannot access the underside for cleaning, opening the door to accumulation of harmful bioplaque and potential oral and therefore systemic health problems including jawbone deterioration and loss of implants, heart valve disease, arthritis and other vital organ damage.
Large gaps open up under the bridge due to changes in the jaw ridge as we age allowing air to leak out from under while speaking causing an embarrassing lisp. Snaptite Smile bridges are able to be modified to close gaps without the expense of replacement.
Zirconium-metal screw retained bridges are heavy, unchangeable, and only a dentist can remove them to access the implant - tissue interface for cleaning. Snaptite Smile is made of a feather lite Nanoceramic known as Crystal® Ultra, which is bonded to an integrated, stronger than metal Trilor® frame allowing modifications as your jaw shape changes with age.
Since they have a non-integrated frame a much more aggressive and invasive surgery requiring substantial bone reduction is needed to make room for a bulky metal framework to screw into. This is not needed with Snaptite Smile. Snaptite Smile’s innovative Trilor® framework is built into the bridge.
Areas of Expertise
Beautiful surroundings, fresh coffee, tea, water & mints; a refrigerator filled with any juice you want; friendly courteous professional staff. Where am I?
Dr. Michael Corsello’s office! I relaxed for the very first time I’ve ever been to a dentist. I got a goodie bag too! How cool is that!
The rooms are immaculate, containing state of the art technology. Calming scenes of nature are awaiting me as I lie back in a chair that has a massage device to relax any tensions in my lower back. The staff is courteous and efficient. Dr. Corsello is friendly and professional. He is passionate about what he does. I was informed of each procedure I had, and was shown my x-rays, which were explained thoroughly.
Yes, I left the dental office with a smile on my face & a song in my heart, and a root canal was one of the procedures. I will never dread going to the dentist again, as long as the dentist is Dr. Corsello. Treat yourself and be blown away by a caring empathetic team of professionals who love what they do.

PS: It’s a tad long but I couldn’t help it. You guys are just terrific!
Dr. Michael Corsello and staff,
It’s been just over a year since my initial consultation, and final adjustments to my Snaptite Smile. I never thought they would be as comfortable and natural looking as they are. Friends and family can’t believe it either. When other doctors said I wasn’t a good candidate for dental implants, Dr. Corsello assured me that with today’s technology, it could be done.
Thanks to all at Northland Dental Medicine (Snaptite Smile) I couldn’t be happier with the result!

I received the flyer in the mail and it offered a free exam and x-ray. I needed a new dentist and thought let’s give this one a try.
I walked into the office and immediately felt like I was family. From the welcome at the front desk to my conversation with Maria and meeting Dr. Mike I needed major wok in my mouth at least 2-3 implants. Dr. Mike examined me and gave me a detailed report on the work that he planned on doing for me. The cost was up front and he gave me an alternative cost with a possible bridge.
I started the implant procedure and it took only two visits. I hate having anyone work in my mouth, I always feel as though I am gagging. The last time I had implants on the left side I asked to be put to sleep and they gave me my wish, to the amount of $700.00. Two years later it would cost me almost $900.00. Dr. Mike explained to me what he prefers to do for his patients instead of being put to sleep. (even though he offers I.V. Sedation) His soft and quiet demeanor gave me such peace. I opted to go with his way and it cost me $2.35 for Valium. I sat in the chair and felt NO PAIN, NO GAGGING and couldn’t believe I was in the chair for two hours, it felt like ten minutes.
My next appointment was to do the impressions for the implants… so professional and again gave me such peace.
I have had my implants for almost two months and I love them.
I highly recommend Dr. Mike and his staff
