What Is Tartar? Complications It Creates And How To Stop it

Posted on 11/22/2021 by Beautiful Smiles Office
What Is Tartar? Complications It Creates And How To Stop itTartar entails the hard deposits which coat the teeth and gums. The tartar creation occurs when remaining food particles and bacteria from your mouth mix to form plaque. Thereafter, when you refuse to treat the plaque, it hardens and forms tartar. Tartar is very harmful to your gums and teeth because it leads to tooth decay due to increased bacteria concentration that eats away the tooth enamel.

Complications Caused By Tartar

Tartar causes numerous complications in your mouth. It makes it difficult for you to clean your teeth and gums. You cannot remove tartar by brushing your teeth. Therefore, you are cannot clean your delicate tooth tissue that is underneath the tartar. Also, it makes it hard for you to floss your teeth, and instead of the situation getting better, it continues to worsen despite you brushing your teeth.

Also, tartar irritates your gums and eventually causes gum disease. You have to act first to ensure you treat gingivitis and reverse the problem before it worsens. However, if it worsens you will have to undergo critical dental procedures such as gum grafts. Tartar can cause periodontitis which allows the bacteria to attack your teeth from the roots leading to tooth decay and gum infections.

How To Stop Tartar Formation

For you to stop tartar from forming in your teeth, you have to prevent the formation of plaque in your mount. You can start by brushing your teeth at least two times a day for a minimum of two minutes each time. Make sure you brush each side of your teeth completely.

You should also ensure you avoid sugary foods or drinks. Sugar assists in the quick development of plaque in your teeth and is also a key component for microbial growth in your mouth. You can actually prevent tartar from forming by practicing good oral hygiene. If you have any questions about tartar complications and removal, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to help you!
