Dr. Karl Neuhaus is an experienced general dentist in Amherst, NY, offering a full range of general dentistry services including routine dental cleanings, preventive care, oral surgery, and restorative procedures. While preventive care and general dentistry are the foundation of Creekside Dentistry, Dr. Neuhaus can offer advanced solutions for treating complex dental problems, including missing teeth, the placement of dental implants, TMJ disorders, and cosmetic dental concerns.
The Importance of General Dentistry
Ideally, a visit to the dentist is a quick trip to prevent future problems. However, as a general dentist, Dr. Neuhaus urges patients to visit the dentist for routine dental cleanings and oral health checkups at least every six months.
As many as 3 out of every 4 adults are affected by periodontal disease, also known as gum disease. Without a dentist’s expertise, gum disease can contribute to serious health conditions like heart disease and diabetes. Having routine dental checkups allows the dentist to prevent gum disease and treat it in its earliest stages to avoid long-term issues.
