 What is Calculus & Tartar?
 
Calculus & Tartar is an accumulation of remaining food particles mixed with Bacteria which causes Cavities and Bad Breath.

 How does Tartar develop?
 
Tartar & Stains develop if proper vertical brushing technique is not followed. It usually occurs on teeth, which are not used for chewing & it occurs on those surface of teeth which are not cleaned by our toothbrush especially lower inner surface & upper back teeth surface.

 How to avoid Tartar formation?
 
a).By using the correct Vertical Brushing technique & seeing to it that each & every tooth surface is cleaned by the toothbrush.

b).By using electronic Tooth Brush once a day for brushing.

c).By regularly visiting a dentist every 6 months, Learning correct brushing technique & getting your teeth & gums cleaned once in a year.

 What is the treatment of Tartar & Stains?
 
a).Teeth & Gum cleaning is the only treatment & learning the correct brushing technique to avoid re-formation of tartar & stain.
b).By using good medicated anti-staining Mouth washes.

 What if I do not clean my stains & tartar on a regular base every 6 monthly/yearly?
 
It may lead to bad breath and multiple cavity formation. It may even lead to discolouration of teeth, weakening & bleeding of the gums further progress of the disease may lead to pus discharge from gums known as PYORRHOEA and bad smell & bad taste in the mouth where you may have to undergo gum surgery or extractions & then you may have to wear a removable denture.

 Will my teeth become white by cleaning?
 
No. Teeth cleaning do not change teeth colour to white, but it only removes the external superficial discolouration & stains from the tooth surface caused due to tobacco, smoking, or tea, coffee, etc.

Bleaching makes teeth whiter.

 Will my teeth become loose or weak by cleaning regularly every year?
 
Teeth Cleaning does not make your teeth loose; instead it makes your gums healthy to hold your teeth more firmly and give you a fresh Breath & avoid any gum infection or pyorrhea to develop.

Secondly regular dental check-ups helps us to diagnose any new cavity developing which can be stopped at that stage only & thus prevent it becoming deeper and painful and the need of Root Canal Treatment.

Also avoid using tooth picks for food lodgement between 2 teeth or besides a cap as adjacent gums and tooth may get damaged very soon with it.
