1. What is tartar? What causes tartar?
Tartar is hard, white/yellow/brown plaque that clings around the roots or on the surface of the teeth. Scientifically, it is an accumulation of components such as calcium carbonate, minerals, food residues, bacteria, dead cells… Tartar is often found on the inside of teeth or between teeth, where people don’t brush well.
Tartar forms during daily eating. Food residue is catalyzed by bacteria, saliva and minerals that create plaque on the tooth surface. Plaque that is not properly cleaned will combine with salt compounds to form tartar.
2. Why take tartar?
If tartar is not removed, the toxins of the bacteria in tartar will cause a local inflammatory reaction. From there, it causes diseases such as gingivitis, periodontitis, even loose teeth and loss of teeth. Proper oral hygiene and regular tartar removal will not only help your teeth shine, keep your breath fresh, but also prevent these dangerous diseases.
