Nancy lived in Colorado. Troubled with chronically inflamed dental implants and annoyed by food that always got impacted between her teeth and her gums, she sought help at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, who referred her to Dr. Chal.
When she appeared in Dr. Chal's office, she was reluctant to smile, as this "before" photograph shows.
An examination showed that the implant fixtures (root forms) were improperly placed. The surgeon had placed them at the crest of the ridge of her jawbone on the upper. This may have seemed to him like a logical place, but in order to try to make the teeth work, the restorative dentist then had to move the teeth further to the front. In other words, the teeth were out of alignment with the implants, an unhealthy situation.
Food would get caught under her front teeth, in the place marked by the arrow in the photograph below. And you can see how the implants are not placed in line with the teeth where they should be.
