Do You Have Tartar On Your Teeth?

If you have tartar on your teeth, brushing and flossing can fail to help remove it. This substance – a form of plaque that has enjoyed time to harden – is not a material you can remove through at-home care alone. One of the reasons regular dental checkups are encouraged is so that you can receive an expert dental cleaning. Your hygienist possesses the tools required to remove tartar, and the skill and attention to find any traces of it on your teeth. Without its removal, tartar can allow for sustained decay to occur, which can lead to your suffering a cavity.

Other Benefits To Regular Dental Visits

Of course, while the cleaning you receive is important, it is not the only reason you should be coming in to see your dentist. These sessions are typically recommended to occur at six month intervals, though your dentist might suggest something different based on your needs. These visits open up the opportunity to catch and treat problems sooner. A cavity you were unaware of can take relatively minor restorative dental work to fix. A larger cavity that becomes painful can call for a more involved degree of care.

Preventing The Formation Of Tartar Calls For Good Daily Oral Care

If you want to have tartar removed, you will need a professional cleaning. In order to limit the formation of tartar, you need to exercise smart, consistent daily oral care. By brushing at least two times a day, and flossing at least one time a day, you are able to remove concentrations of bacteria (plaque) before they harden and become tartar.
