Tooth Tartar Threatens Teeth

Bacteria building particles, left untreated, create plaque that eventually turns to hardened tooth tartar.  Tartar, difficult to remove, leads to gum disease.  Good oral health habits can prevent tooth tarter from forming on your teeth.

Where Tooth Tartar Comes From

If you are not in the habit of brushing and flossing after meals, you will experience the growth of plaque on your teeth.

Plaque is the soft sticky film that forms on your teeth from bacteria.  Plaque contains millions of bacteria.  When you eat and do not remove food particles from your teeth with brushing or flossing, the bacteria remain.  Plaque buildup causes tooth tartar.  Tooth tartar that remains on the teeth makes it even more difficult to clean your teeth.  Eventually, the tartar builds up under the gum, causing gingivitis.

You can recognize gingivitis with gums that are swollen, red and bleed when brushing your teeth.  This is an early sign that hardened tooth tartar has begun the early stages of gum disease.

Halitosis from Tooth Tartar

Just like food, anything that is rotting has an odor.  When plaque is present on the teeth, it takes the sugars from your foods and turns them into acid.  Acid begins the rotting process of the protective enamel on your teeth.  When allowed to progress, the process causes bad breath or halitosis.  Halitosis can be a sign of serious health conditions as well as a big sign to visit the dentist.
