Tartar Plaque Removal

Plaque Removal

In order to maintain good oral health, everyone should learn more about plaque and tarter and plaque removal. Plaque is in your mouth every moment of every day.

This filmy, sticky substance lingers on your teeth and releases acid every time you eat something. That acid, in turn, wears away the vital enamel that protects your teeth.

Plaque Facts

Plaque build up and gingivitis effects at least half of all adults. On-going build up of plaque can lead to tartar and a variety of oral problems that include:

-     gingivitis
-     bleeding gums
-     bone loss in the gum
-     periodontal disease
-     tooth decay
-     cavities

Plaque has also been shown to increase a person’s risk of developing heart disease and respiratory infections.

With this in mind, plaque removal becomes very important to your overall oral health.

On-Going Personal Care

The American Dental association tells us that you can control the majority of plaque simply by brushing twice daily using fluoride toothpaste, flossing once a day, and rinsing with fluoride rinse.

Note that most adults do not brush their teeth effectively, spending far less than the full two minutes of brushing that dentists recommend. Just taking a little more time to brush your teeth decreases your risk of developing cavities and other oral problems significantly. Remember to brush both the inside and the outside on both the upper and lower teeth, and to brush your tongue.

Since plaque is hard to see, you may want to get some revealing tablets and use them once a week to show you the areas in your mouth where you’re not brushing or flossing effectively. Remember to replace your toothbrush every three to four months (or the tooth brush head if using electric models)

Gargling with an antiseptic gargle loosens plaque and. About a full minute of gargling each day before brushing is good.

Additionally go to see your dentist twice a year for cleanings and check ups.

Tartar Plaque Removal

When plaque is left in place, it hardens and becomes tartar. At this point you’ll require a dentist or dental hygienist to remove it for you so that gingivitis doesn’t begin, so that tooth enamel doesn’t decay, and to decrease the chances of periodontal disease. 

Home Tartar Plaque Removal

There are now some home plaque removal kits but most dentists do not recommend them. Using a dental pick can be tricky and you can easily hurt your gums or scratch the enamel on your teeth. Instead, just keeping up with your daily teeth brushing and flossing is really the best way to remove plaque at home.

Should you have a bad buildup of plaque and tarter, then you might need profession deep cleaning (called Scaling). Dentists use a special tool to get below the gum line and remove the tarter buildup. This is the area that’s hardest for us to reach ourselves in daily brushing.  So doing prevents the development of gum disease.
