How To Prevent Calcium Buildup On Teeth
Calcium buildup can be irritating. “These deposits can often be prevented by regular brushing, but you’ll need the help of your dentist or dental hygienist to remove them once they decide to stick around.”
How tartar forms – Calcium buildup is often referred to as tartar, and it forms when the bacterial film on the teeth picks up calcium and other elements then starts to harden.
While tartar can develop anywhere on the teeth, it can be troublesome between the teeth, as many people don’t floss as they should.
Removing Calcium Buildup – Tartar can only be removed with specific tools your dentist uses that are designed for this purpose.
You can avoid tartar buildup by brushing and flossing daily as well as visiting your dentist every six months. When flossing, make sure to hug the floss around each individual tooth.
