Composite & Amalgam Fillings
We offer two different options for patients looking to repair and restore a tooth that has been damaged by a cavity. Composite fillings are tooth-colored and particularly useful when filling cavities on highly visible teeth. Amalgam fillings are silver in color, and a tried and true method for certain types of cavities. During your appointment, Dr. Cassleman will listen to your needs and offer honest advice to help you decide which filling option is best for you.

root canal therapy
This relatively routine procedure is one of the best ways to save a tooth that has been badly damaged by infection or decay. Dr. Cassleman uses a local anesthetic to make your procedure as painless as possible. During treatment, infected pulp will be removed. The canals will then be thoroughly cleaned and filled with gutta-percha, a rubber-like material, in order to protect the nerves of the roots. Once those canals are protected, the tooth is filled as it would be in the case of a cavity or, if necessary, crowned. After your appointment, you’ll leave our office with a restored, healthy tooth.
protect tooth structure
Whether your tooth has been damaged by decay or an impact injury, a dental crown can help protect the structure, allowing you to keep your original tooth. By covering and protecting the existing tooth, dental crowns are an affordable, effective restoration. During your appointment, Dr. Cassleman will take impressions of your teeth that will be sent to a lab where your custom crown will be created. When your crown arrives, we will check to make sure it fits perfectly, and Dr. Cassleman will permanently attach it to your tooth.

Partial & Full Dentures
Dentures are very simple, compared to other dental prosthetics. Both partial and full dentures are made out of acrylic plastic or resin, and they are custom designed to mimic the appearance and shape of your natural teeth. Full dentures fit over your gums and replace a whole arch of missing teeth. Partial dentures attach to healthy teeth in your mouth with a wire shaped to your natural arch. Whether you are missing one or multiple teeth, denture options at St. Clair Tooth Co. can help restore your smile and your confidence!
Permanent Replacement Teeth
If you are looking for a more permanent solution for missing teeth, dental implants might be the right option for you. The implant process starts with a consultation and an assessment by Dr. Cassleman to determine if your gums and jaw bone are healthy enough to support an implant. If implants are right for you, a specialist will surgically insert a small, titanium post where your missing tooth once was, and when this post heals it mimics a natural tooth root. Dr. Cassleman then permanently adheres a custom crown to your implant that will look and feel natural, and last for a lifetime with proper dental care.
