Dental Calculus is the buildup of plaque under the gum line, or the back of your teeth, or others areas in and around the teeth. Sugary foods like candies, soft drinks, cakes and sweets left on the surface of the teeth can cause tartar to form in the mouth. The bacteria in the mouth feed on the leftover and can cause tooth loss or damage to the enamel. This tartar can lead to difficulty in brushing which can lead to cavities.
HOW IS DENTAL CALCULUS DIAGNOSED?
Complications could lead to periodontal problems like gingivitis.
