What is one of the number one things that people notice and remember after meeting someone for the first time? Why your pearly whites and your oral hygiene, of course!
If your breath was fresh and appealing, it’s doubtful they will have noticed. BUT if it was terrible, you know that your breath was definitely the only thing on their mind. Have no doubt that they will remember your meeting in a negative light if you don’t have that one simple thing under control. Taking the time to remove tartar from your teeth can help you maintain and control your oral hygiene.
Mouths are Gross
Everyone’s mouth on planet earth contains a substantial number of bacteria. And is actually necessary for good mouth health. Although if left unmanaged, it can lead to terrible consequences.
Plaque is created when bacteria present in your mouth comes into contact with food, particulates, and other organic matter. This is a very sticky slime that coats every nook and cranny of your mouth.
Plaque that is left in your mouth for too long will harden and be much harder to remove. At this stage, it is called tartar, or dental calculus. This affects almost the entire population at this point in time.
Without plaque removal, it can lead to many different problems.
Some of the issues might be:
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
Do I have a tartar problem?
There are several ways to tell if you have tartar buildup. Use your tongue to feel your teeth. A rough substance that brushing does nothing for could be tartar. It appears yellow above the gum line and brown or black below. You can also swirl any brightly colored liquid around your mouth, this will stick to the tartar, and your teeth will be stained for a short period of time.
How to Remove Tartar
Plaque removal can be complicated or straightforward, depending on the severity of the buildup. The most effective option is practicing good oral hygiene, so you don’t have any large deposits.
Proper dental care is recommended for substantial problems, but there are several things you can do at home to repair and maintain your dental health.
- Brush your teeth two times daily, at a minimum. Brushing both morning and nighttime is essential to good mouth health. Make sure you brush all your teeth, including back molars.
- Using an electric toothbrush is more effective than a manual and faster. Battery power is an easy way to brush up on your mouth routine.
- There are many different kinds of toothpaste and rinses available on the market. Some are designed explicitly with tartar dominance in mind.
- Flossing can be annoying and can take even longer than brushing if done correctly and with care. Flossing can remove things that you can’t reach with regular brushing.
Visiting your dentist on a regular schedule is one of the more essential things you can do for your mouth health. Your dentist can clean and floss your teeth, take x-rays, and remove any stubborn tartar on your teeth. At the end of your visit, your dentist will typically let you know any steps you’re missing or improvement areas.
In conclusion, caring for your teeth by regularly brushing, flossing, and using mouth wash will save you money in the long run. Besides hereditary factors, caring for your teeth every day with these necessary steps will help keep you from visiting the oral surgeon in the future.
Not only will your teeth and gums stay healthy, but caring for your oral health will help you have more confidence in your smile, let you feel happier, keep those around you happier with your fresh breath and beautiful teeth.
