5 Bad Oral Health Habits to Break This Year

By the end of January, plenty of us have already slacked on our New Year's resolutions -- but we're not saying that to bring you down. We actually mean the opposite: Just because you haven't made it to the gym or are still spending a little too much on takeout doesn't mean you can't recommit to your goals.

While you're at it -- have you made any resolutions about your dental health this year? If not, now's the time to do it. Here are five habits to break in 2017 for your best smile yet.

Looking for the Right Dentist?

​Finding a dentist can be difficult, but with Amara Dental located in Toms River, you won't have to search any further. Conveniently located near Pine Beach, Seaside Heights, Brick, Beachwood, Ocean Gate, Lakehurst and Ocean County, New Jersey, Amara Dental located in Toms River offers family dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and emergency care.

From Family Dentistry to Smile Makeovers, We Do it All​

Cleaning - The American Dental Association recommends that you brush and floss twice a day, every day. Regular attention to your teeth reduces the buildup of plaque, and therefore wards off tooth decay. However, in order to maintain optimal oral health, you'll need a twice-yearly cleaning by a dentist. A general cleaning at Amara Dental located in Toms River removes any threats to your oral health and identifies issues that require special treatment.

Care Check-Up - Your dentist will ask you questions about your oral care habits, which include not just how often you brush and floss but also whether you smoke, how much sugar you eat and whether you take any new medication.

Additionally, depending on the condition of your teeth or how long it has been since your last visit, your dentist might decide that you need the following:

Sealants - Teeth with thin or porous enamel are more susceptible to cavities and more severe forms of tooth decay. Typically, this condition affects the molars more than other teeth. If your dentist notices that you're at-risk, they will recommend sealants, which are a thin plastic coating that adheres to your molars and provides them with extra strength.

X-Rays - While not part of every visit, your dentist will regularly recommend x-rays as part of your general visit. Dental x-rays give your dentist a clear view of your jaw, soft tissues, bones and roots of your teeth. They can reveal problems such as cavities, impacted wisdom teeth and bone loss, all of which can't be seen during an ordinary visual examination.

Fluoride Treatment - In-office fluoride treatments can help prevent tooth decay by naturally restoring minerals to the teeth and preventing mineral loss, which occurs naturally over time. Fluoride treatment typically takes less than half an hour.

In addition to general family dentistry, we also offer specialized treatment such as:

Cosmetic Dentistry - Sometimes called a "smile makeover," cosmetic dentistry is meant to improve the appearance of your teeth. Even if your teeth are healthy, aesthetic imperfections like discoloration or gaps can affect your confidence. Cosmetic dentistry fixes those imperfections, leaving you with an even, radiant smile.

Cosmetic dentistry procedures include:

  • Teeth whitening - Using polish, bleach or a combination of both, teeth whitening gets rid of yellow discoloration on the enamel of your teeth.
  • Veneers - Veneers are thin, lifelike coverings that correct the appearance of teeth and protect them from damage.
  • Dental implants - If you have missing teeth and would like to fill the gaps, ask for dental implants, which are posts to which a false tooth can be affixed.

We also know that not all dental procedures can wait. That's why we offer emergency dental services like root canals, gum infections, acute tooth pain, and traumatic dental injuries.
