Benefits of Preventive Dentistry
In addition to being interested in the beauty of your smile, we are concerned with the health of your mouth. Regular dental checkups not only keep your teeth and gumslooking good, feeling great, and functioning well, but keeping up with your oral health can also significantly reduce the amount of money you’ll need to spend on dental treatment later in life.

We also screen for early detection of oral cancer. Digital x-rays help with this, because they allow Dr. Schaller to see possible tumors and other problems associated with the jaws. A healthy body needs a healthy mouth!
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES & SYSTEMS
Digital x-rays are a fast and comfortable way for us to accurately diagnose your oral health needs. They emit up to 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays and require no chemical processing, so they’re easy on you and on the environment.
Using this camera, we can give you a “tour” of your mouth, live on a TV screen. We also use the intraoral camera to guide you through your diagnosis and treatment options, keeping you informed every step of the way. We want you to be able to make smart choices for your oral health and smile.
Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings
Composite dental fillings can be adhesively held in place or “bonded.” Because they can be bonded to teeth, composite fillings allow for more conservative preparations where less healthy tooth structure is removed. This often results in smaller fillings than that of amalgam (silver fillings), and they are more natural looking. The tooth-colored material is cured with a special light and the surface is shaped and polished to match the tooth, rendering the final restoration virtually undetectable to the eye and very natural feeling in the mouth.
Many of the millions of people who are missing teeth struggle with ill-fitting, uncomfortable dentures or retainers with false teeth. If you know what this feels like and are ready for a permanent solution, we have one for you! Dr. Schaller utilizes a team of local specialists to give your smile a second chance through dental implants. Implants can help solve social problems associated with missing teeth or dentures. They are effective in stabilizing dentures to fit better, feel better, look better, and chew better. Healthy dental implants can even prevent the bone loss that commonly occurs after tooth loss.
In addition to stabilizing dentures, dental implants can be used in some crown and bridge applications, as well as single-tooth replacements. To learn more, visit our Dental Implants page.
If chipped, discolored, or misshapen teeth make you self-conscious about your smile, porcelain veneers are small inventions that make a BIG difference in your life. They are sculpted by hand and adhesively held, or bonded, to the front side of your teeth to revive your smile. Veneers look and feel like natural, beautiful teeth, and they are an excellent cosmetic solution for teeth that are too discolored for traditional whitening methods.
