What is the dental tartar? It is a disease that occurs mainly due to incorrect teeth brushing. The reason for this occurrence is the plaque, which is made up of food particles. In fact, the tartar is the same as plaque, but it is a little harder and it can’t be removed with a toothbrush.
Tartar formation mechanism is as follows: firstly, there are food particles on the teeth after each meal because the person does not remove them properly. These food particles are called "dental mucus".
Bacteria occurs in the mucus and the calcium and phosphate salts are deposited. All this leads to a strengthening of the load on the teeth and between them , and also in the gingival pocket.
Why is it necessary to remove the dental tartar?
If you do not remove the dental tartar, it can lead not only to purely aesthetic problems (tartar has usually an unpleasant yellow or brown colour, and, moreover, there is a bad smell from the mouth), but also to gum disease, such as periodontitis.
Once entered in the gums "pocket", the tartar destroys the tissue causing the destruction of the lower part of the tooth, bleeding gums and pain. In addition, tooth sensitivity may increase – you feel pain when food is consumed hot, cold or very sweet.
