Understanding the Basics
What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are a method of restoring missing teeth. They consist of two primary parts:
The dental implant itself is a small piece of titanium that’s shaped like a screw. It is surgically implanted into your gums and jaw by an oral surgeon and is intended to act as an artificial tooth root.
The second part is the implant restoration. This is what replaces your missing tooth. For a single-tooth implant, Dr. Cassleman will make a dental crown that looks and feels just like a natural tooth. Multiple implants can also be used to support dental bridges and full-arch dentures to restore multiple teeth.

What to expect
The Dental Implant Process
First, Dr. Cassleman will determine if you’re a good candidate for an implant. If you are, she will refer you to an oral surgeon in the area. Your oral surgeon will develop an implant placement plan, then schedule your procedure.
During your implant surgery, Your mouth will be cleaned and numbed, and the implant will be placed into the socket where your missing tooth used to be. Then, the area will be cleaned and sutured shut, and you will be sent home to heal.
After you heal for a few weeks, you’ll come into our office for a follow-up appointment. Dr. Cassleman will ensure that your mouth is healing properly, and she will begin taking impressions of your smile and images of your teeth. This information will be used to build your dental implant restoration.
Once your mouth has fully healed, you’ll come in for a final consultation. Dr. Cassleman will examine your mouth, ensure that your dental restoration fits properly, and then bond it into place permanently to complete the procedure.
