Tartar Is..?

The plaque on your teeth turns into tartar, which is made up of bacteria and unremoved food particles from your mouth. When plaques stay in place for a long time, it hardens into tartar.

How To Control Your Tartar?

  • Brush your teeth twice a day for a minimum of two minutes, each time using fluoride toothpaste. Try using a soft-bristled toothbrush.
  • Floss your teeth after you have finished brushing them. This will remove small particles left behind.
  • Rinse your mouth daily with an antiseptic mouthwash. This will help kill bacterias.
  • Stay away from sugary foods. Sugar in foods hard your teeth and enamel.
  • Do not smoke, as smoking promotes the development of tartar.
