Services for Young Smiles
Dr. Schaeffer performs routine dental exams, complete with traditional x-rays that ensure your child’s oral health and overall wellbeing. If they’ve already experienced cavities, we provide safe dental fillings to keep their smiles uniform. At our office, we prioritize health and prevention, both of which go a long way toward encouraging positive development. Along with fillings we also provide fluoride and sealants, which fight or prevent cavities.
The habits we develop as children often inform our routines as adults. Those habits can also affect your appearance in ways you may not have realized. At Dr. Schaeffer’s office, we work with parents to break habits such as thumb-sucking, which can affect the development of their oral anatomy and facial structure.
Many are unaware of the tongue’s role in oral development, and having a thumb in its place can alter the formation of your upper jaw. Thumb-sucking can lead to misalignment and the need for orthodontic correction. Taking a proactive approach earlier in life can help prevent improper development and preserve your child’s long-term well-being.
Dr. Schaeffer also extends this approach to interceptive orthodontics. We offer functional appliance therapy, which helps effectively move children’s teeth in a wider area. Similar to popular brands of clear braces, these plastic trays allow crowding teeth to integrate into our young patients’ smiles without interrupting their alignment and aesthetics. With this treatment, patients can either shorten their traditional orthodontic treatments or avoid them outright.
Services for Adults and Seniors
For patients in their later years who have missing or damaged teeth, Dr. Schaeffer offers a wide variety of restorative solutions. Dr. Schaeffer collaborates with a local lab to produce realistic crowns and bridges. We utilize high-quality materials such as porcelain so you can be happy with the aesthetic results. We also work with a lab that specializes in denture and partial production.
