Preventive care is the foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles

Monday, September 16th, 2013

In today’s world, we are busier than ever and finding the time for routine preventive care can be a challenge for many of us. Dr. Karl Neuhaus and his father, Dr. Walter Neuhaus, have been practicing dentistry for over 50 years combined and they understand the importance of regular visits in maintaining good oral health. With recent studies showing links between dental health problems and poor overall health, keeping a healthy smile takes on another level of importance!

Regular visits to Creekside Dentistry in Amherst give Drs. Neuhaus and their staff the opportunity to screen for gum disease and other potential dental problems that can be treated effectively with conservative measures when in the early stages. Typical oral health problems such as gum disease and tooth decay can often lead to more complex problems when left untreated, possibly requiring restorative procedures to correct.

Dr. Karl Neuhaus and Dr. Walter Neuhaus will take the time with each patient during regular visits to fully assess their oral health with digital technology and a thorough exam. These visits allow them to create a lasting relationship with each patient and provides an opportunity for patients to discuss any concerns they may have concerning their oral health.

A typical routine visit to Creekside Dentistry will include:

  • Diagnostic x-rays
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Periodontal screening (for gum disease)
  • Dental caries (cavities) screening
  • Digital bite analysis and examination of temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and jaw position
  • Digital imaging for analysis, diagnosis, and treatment planning
  • 2-D and 3-D models for analysis and treatment planning

For patients who suffer from dental anxiety, Creekside Dentistry offers sedation dentistry to provide maximum comfort and relaxation during any procedure.
