Phoenix, Arizona implant dentist Arthur Chal DDS, FAGD, FICOI
Dental implants are being placed by many dentists these days. They have become the first choice option for missing teeth. But while some cases are fairly straightforward, many are quite complex and require more expertise than most dentists possess.
Dr. Arthur Chal, an implant dentist, is driven by his passion for improving the quality of life of each and every patient he treats. This motivation coupled with his impressive credentials has made him a recognized expert in placing dental implants.
Case Study Illustrates Importance of Selecting Your Implant Dentist Carefully
Brenda was referred to Dr. Chal by Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale, Arizona. She had dental implants which had been placed when she was in California and was having serious problems with that treatment – persistent infections, numbness, and constant pain in her lower lip.
Brenda – Before
When Dr. Chal examined her, he found that three upper implants had been placed in her nose and that the lower fixtures were compressing the nerve to her lower lip. He also found that some of them were were loose, leaving openings for infection.
These are problems, unfortunately, that are occurring too frequently, when dental implants are placed without careful planning including thorough radiographic studies, and when substandard fixtures are used.
Fortunately, Dr. Chal was able to rectify all of these matters for Brenda, as the happy “after” photograph below illustrates.
Brenda – After
After Dr. Chal restored her mouth, Brenda’s sister commented that she looks ten years younger.

In helping Brenda, Dr. Chal and his technician, Bruce Keeling, pioneered a new fixed retrievable hybrid technique. They have subsequently been teaching this technique to international audiences of dentists and technicians.
