Preventing Plaque From Becoming Tartar

A coating of plaque on the teeth is one of life’s inevitabilities as it is necessary for the digestion process. Plaque only becomes a problem when it is allowed to accumulate and harden into tartar. 

Yellow or brown in colour and exceptionally hard, tartar has to be removed by a dentist using specialised tools that can reach all the inaccessible crevices in the teeth. 

Removing plaque is easily done by:

Brushing teeth properly

Using dental floss and mouthwash

Having teeth professionally cleaned

These three preventive measures will reduce plaque build-up to a minimum and in turn prevent the “tooth decay and gum disease” that tartar can cause. More information about plaque and tartar can be found at
