Dr. Khanna offers options for replacing missing teeth, including dental implants, in his Geneva, IL dentist office.
Dental implants are changing the way people live! With dental implants, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that their teeth appear natural and that their facial contours will be preserved.
What is a Dental Implant
The actual dental implant is a tiny titanium posts that is placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The implant will function like a “tooth root”, fusing to the bone to create a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Dental implants are restored with either a dental crown or denture depending on how many teeth are being replaced.

Are Dental Implants Right For You?
If you are considering dental implants, the first step is to schedule an appointment with Geneva, IL dentist Dr. Neeraj Khanna. He will inspect your teeth, gums and mouth and determine if dental implants are right for you. It is important that you have adequate bone structure to secure the implant in place.
Dr. Khanna will create a personalized treatment plan. He may place the implant himself or coordinate treatment with an oral surgeon or periodontist who will perform the surgery. The dental implant will be restored in our Geneva dental office by Dr. Khanna. In some cases, the dental implant will be restored the same day in a procedure known as “teeth in a day”.
There are several factors that Dr. Khanna will consider before recommending dental implants. Some of these include:
- Adequate bone support to anchor the implant
- Healthy gum tissue
- Sinus and nerve location
- Overall health, including any chronic illnesses
