General dentistry is an area of health care that manages your oral health needs, including your teeth and gums.
Your teeth help you chew food for better digestion, assist with speaking and pronunciation, and maintain the shape of your face.
Regular brushing and flossing are important for keeping your teeth and gums healthy, but you also need general dentistry for professional cleanings and checkups.

General dentistry services at Rural Health Corporation of Northeastern Pennsylvania include cleanings and hygiene checkups.
Regular dental cleanings are essential for keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Your dental expert at Rural Health Corporation of Northeastern Pennsylvania removes plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums during these cleanings.
Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that collects on your teeth. When you eat certain foods, the bacteria in the plaque produce acids that erode the enamel on your teeth, leading to cavities.
Regular brushing and flossing help remove plaque from your teeth and gums. However, plaque hardens into tartar when not brushed away, trapping the bacteria on the teeth, along the gum line, and under the gums.
You can’t remove tartar by brushing and flossing. The dental professionals at Rural Health Corporation of Northeastern Pennsylvania use special tools to remove tartar from your teeth and gums, preventing cavities and gum disease.
General dentistry at Rural Health Corporation of Northeastern Pennsylvania also includes hygiene checkups. The dentist examines your teeth and gums during the checkup and looks for cavities, gum disease, and other oral health concerns.
The dental professionals at Rural Health Corporation of Northeastern Pennsylvania determine when you need general dentistry. However, you should visit the dentist for cleanings and hygiene checkups every six months.
You may need more frequent cleanings and checkups if you have an oral health problem like gum disease or an underlying health condition such as diabetes that increases your risk of gum disease.
