tooth tartar

What is Tartar?

Tartar is plaque on the teeth that forms from food debris left over. Lime not only causes loss of aesthetics but also has a potential risk of affecting oral health such as bad breath, gingivitis or worse, periodontitis.

When should we get tartar removal?

No matter how thorough and complete oral hygiene at home can only clean 70 to 80% of your teeth, the rest will continue to become plaque and form tartar. Therefore, in addition to home hygiene measures, dentists recommend taking tartar periodically at least every 3 to 6 months.

Risk of tooth loss due to tartar accumulated for a long time

Lime is where bacteria reside, causing long-lasting bad breath, causing many people to lose confidence in communication and daily activities. If tartar sticking on the teeth for a long time, it will cause many dangerous oral diseases such as root bleeding, gingivitis leading to periodontitis and may be forced to remove the teeth.

In addition, tartar accumulation for a long time can lead to receding gums causing weak teeth, loose teeth and tooth loss.


However, tartar once formed will be very firm on the teeth and difficult to clean if only brushing daily or flossing. Many people are afraid to go to the dentist so they take tartar at home with non-specialized tools, resulting in damage to the tooth surface, torn gums or worse, breaking teeth.

Advices after tartar removal

When the tartar removal process is finished, teeth, gums and enamel are quite sensitive. At this time, you need to take care of your teeth and pay attention to eating and drinking to avoid sensitivity. Here are some notes:
