Dr. Neeraj Khanna, DDS in Geneva, IL specializes in the replacement of missing teeth. Whether your teeth are missing because of an injury or accident, gum disease, tooth decay, age or other reasons, Dr. Khanna offers a wide range of natural looking replacement options.
Tooth loss creates a range of problems for patients from emotional and social concerns to sometimes serious medical conditions. Once a tooth is lost, the bone begins to deteriorate. It will continue to deteriorate if no treatment is sought, making replacement options more and more difficult and potentially affecting other teeth. For this reason, missing teeth should be treated as quickly as possible.

Dr. Khanna will perform a comprehensive evaluation to diagnose your specific condition, discuss your personal concerns and make recommendations for the best long term results. Our goal is to restore your smile to its natural function with optimal health and esthetics.
- Dental Implants – Dental implants are the most life-like replacements for missing teeth. They are a permanent solution for tooth loss, with a success rate of more than 95%.

In fact, many patients say that they forget they even have a dental implant.Dental implant costs are a major concern for many patients. It should be noted, however, that dental implants offer the best long term solution and need the least amount of dental work in the future. While no type of dental restoration is 100% guaranteed, patients with dental implants often experience little to no maintenance requirements or additional costs. Learn more about dental implants.
