Teeth That Feel Dirty: Details From Your Moreno Valley Dentist

Your teeth just never really feel as clean as they should. You know what that feels like because you’ve experienced a truly clean, healthy smile before, of course! However, if our Moreno Valley, CA team were to ask you if your smile feels its best, you would definitely say no. However, it’s possible that you would also tell us that you are fairly certain you’ve been doing everything you’re supposed to do for your oral health! This leaves you confused! To regain that clean-smile feeling and to figure out what’s going on, take some hints from your Moreno Valley dentist!

You Aren’t Following Best Dental Hygiene Practices

You may be practicing your dental hygiene. However, it may not be the best version for protecting your smile, explains your Moreno Valley dentist. Remember that if you’re not practicing all parts, you’re not on track with the proper frequency, or the duration of your care isn’t spot-on, then you may be missing something. That something, of course, includes food debris and plaque. The plaque will quickly turn into tartar, which won’t budge but that will cause your teeth to remain feeling dirty if enough is allowed to accumulate. Follow the guidelines for dental care to a T for success!

Your Cleanings With Us Only Happen Sometimes

Your Moreno Valley dentist knows you have lots to do every day. However, we remind you that all it takes to ensure you’re on track with your professional prevention, which is what helps you get rid of that plaque and tartar that you cannot completely control on your own, is twice-annual visits. They include cleanings as well as checkups. Schedule them with us (and practice dental hygiene) and your smile will remain feeling wonderful!

You Eat Lots Of Foods With Oxalic Acid

We occasionally find that patients continue to feel like their teeth don’t stay nice and clean because of something in their diets. A primary offender? Something called oxalic acid, a crystalline type of acid present in foods like spinach, beets, rhubarb, and kale. It may make teeth feel fuzzy, so if it’s your morning smoothie, etc., keep this in mind (and rinse or brush after!).
