    PHILADELPHIA, PA, March 16, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- When you think of the dentist, it is likely you are thinking of general dentistry. This is the branch of dentistry dedicated to the prevention, detection, and treatment of oral health issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, and oral infections. General dentistry services are the most common reason people visit the dentist.

There are a number of services a general dentist can perform. These include:

- Tooth cleanings and examinations
- Dental fillings
- Root canals
- Dental restorations such as crowns, inlays and onlays, and bonding
- Dental bridges and dentures
- Treatment of gum disease

Visiting your dentist for twice yearly examinations and professional cleanings is the best way to ensure small problems are addressed quickly, before they turn into serious oral and systemic health issues.

Keeping Your Teeth and Body Healthy

Your general dentist may seem to only take care of your teeth and gums, but their role in your systemic health should not be overlooked. Several studies have found that issues such as gum disease and tooth infections may increase your risk for larger health issues including:

- Heart attack
- Stroke
- Hypertension
- Insulin resistance and other diabetic complications
- Premature birth and other pregnancy complications

Failing to keep your teeth and gums healthy may also result in tooth loss, chronic bad breath, and general oral discomfort. The best way to avoid these issues is through biannual general dentistry visits.

Your Role

While it is important that you visit your dentist for examinations and cleanings every six months, proper oral hygiene requires daily upkeep as well. Your daily routine should include brushing your teeth after every meal and flossing at least once a day. You dentist will best be able to help you determine what type of toothbrush and toothpaste to use, the frequency with which you should floss, and whether or not additional steps such as mouthwash will be beneficial for you.
