Are you worried about the existence of plaque and tartar on your teeth? If you are not, you should be. Plaque and tartar are often the foundations of many oral health ailments that can arise within your smile. Only with effective treatment plans can plaque and tartar be removed.

Plaque is a thin layer of bacteria on your teeth and gums that arise due to inadequate oral hygiene. Plaque is responsible for numerous oral ailments, including cavities, gum disease and the eventual rise of tartar. Fortunately, effective treatments for plaque buildup include brushing twice daily and flossing once daily. Furthermore, you can visit your dentist for routine check-ups, and oral examinations to ensure your health care is going along properly.

If plaque should transform into tartar, it cannot be removed with simple oral health routines such as brushing and flossing. In order to remove tartar, professional treatments must be used. It is important to remove tartar so that further oral ailments such as gum disease and dental erosion do not occur, as irreparable tooth loss may take place.
