Oral Health Instruction
Oral Health Education and Overview For Patients In Portage, MI
Our team at the office of Dr. Jason Dopp is passionate about helping patients and our community in Portage, MI maintain their oral health, as well as building family-like relationships with our patients. Not only are we able to provide exceptional cleanings and hygiene appointments, but our team also makes a point of providing educational resources to patients so they can best maintain their oral health at home and keep a strong daily oral health regimen. There are several different types of oral health concerns that can develop and that we help patients avoid – these can include general tooth decay, gum disease, jawbone loss or deterioration, oral cancers, pain or sensitivity when eating or drinking, and other oral health concerns. As you can see, oral health in itself is a large topic!
Dental exams and routine checkups are vital to long-term oral health in that these exams give our team the opportunity to spot potential oral health concerns before they develop into more serious complications. The best example of this is gum disease, which our team can spot early on before developing into a fully developed case of gum disease. It’s important to stop gum disease in its tracks before it develops, as research has shown there to be a direct link between gum disease and other more serious general health concerns.
Maintaining Oral Health At Home
A regular daily oral health regimen is the backbone of strong oral health. Patients should brush regularly, brushing twice per day and flossing once daily or more to best protect the teeth and gums from plaque buildup and tartar. When left unbrushed, bacteria cna build up in the teeth which leads to tartar, which is the cause of tooth decay. By regularly removing this plaque through brushing, you protect the teeth from decay and future oral health concerns. It’s also key to limit sugar intake, to protect both oral health as well as overall health.
