Dental Tartar is also known as dental calculus. It is the hardened plaque which has been allowed to build up on the teeth and it can cause varied symptoms starting from bleeding gums or gingivitis to inflammation and even bad breath.
HOW IS DENTAL TARTAR DIAGNOSED?
Dentists can diagnose tartar based on dental examination with the help of a mirror and dental explorers to check the extent to which dental tartar has grown. In some cases a dental X-ray may be required
HOW IS DENTAL TARTAR TREATED?
Once the tartar is formed, it becomes very difficult to properly brush or floss the teeth. This can lead to tooth decays and cavities. Treatment involves a deep dental cleaning. The tartar can be removed using some dental tools. If the tooth decay occurs, the dentist will use fillings and crown to correct the cavities and decay.
DID YOU KNOW?
If tartar is not removed and gingivitis is left untreated, it can progress into a more serious form of gum disease known as periodontitis, whereby pockets form between the gums and teeth. Those pockets become infected by bacteria beneath the gums.
