Dental Implant Success Stories

Our experienced implant dentist, Dr. Arthur Chal has performed many complex dental implant treatments for people all over the world. Here is a sampling of some of his beautiful, high quality work.

With this type of work, remember that the pictures only tell a fraction of the story. It’s the improvement in the quality of life for each of these people that is truly dramatic. There are hints of this dramatic change in the expressions on their faces, but the full story can’t be told with just pictures.

And notice how, in the “after” photos below, the faces look more filled out. After teeth are missing, the jawbones shrink and the face collapses. Complete restoration of the mouth will involve restoring the missing bone and gum structure, often with a combination of bone grafting and the use of hybrid denture/implant restorations. The end result is a smiling, confident patient who looks younger and feels much better.

Some of these cases were fairly complex. Some of them had serious disabilities in not being able to eat properly. Often they had self-esteem problems, such as Pam, below, who said that her appearance was frightening her grandchildren. Often, difficult cases like these are referred to Dr. Chal by Mayo Clinic and by other professionals, because they know that he can handle these most difficult cases.
