Dental Implants in Lake Bluff, IL
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer you the possibility to have a permanent tooth replacement that blends seamlessly with your natural smile!
Dental implants are small titanium posts directly placed into your jawbone to replace a missing tooth root. The post acts as a foundation for common dental restorations, renewing your ability to speak, chew, and smile with full confidence.
There are multiple ways implants can be used to restore your smile, including:
- Replacing a single tooth
- Replacing multiple teeth
- Supporting and stabilizing dentures
With dental implants, you can rediscover the benefits of a fully functional and beautiful smile.

- Am I a candidate for dental implants?
Almost anyone who has missing teeth is a candidate for dental implants. Dr. Khan will need to evaluate you to assess if dental implants are the ideal solution for you and your needs.
- How long do implants last?
Unlike your natural teeth, dental implants are not vulnerable to dental diseases. However, good oral hygiene, regular check-ups, and professional cleanings are essential for long-lasting implants.
- Can I remove my dental implants daily?
No. Dental implants are fixed into your jawbone. This allows your new restoration to enjoy a more stable foundation that is closest to your natural ones.
- Do dental implants hurt?
We work hard to make your implant placement as pain-free as possible. After dental implant surgery, your discomfort will be minimal. Any pain can be cared for with over-the-counter medication.
