Welcome arrow Tartar







Tartar or calculus refers to the formation of rough (calcified) deposits on the tooth surface.

Calculus accumulation take place in the absence of sufficient oral care, and is formed by the continuous presence of dental plaque which with time hardens, becomes firmly attached to the teeth surface and very hard to remove.

Tartar or calculus can be supragingival above the gum margin of teeth or subgingival where it is evident under the gum margin.

Tartar rough surface provides a perfect environment for further bacterial plaque and stain formation, threatening the health of the gum and supporting jaw bone.

Prevention of tartar build up

It is paramount to prevent the build up of calculus through daily tooth brushing (twice a day) and flossing as well as regular professional care based on your individual needs.

Nevertheless tartar accumulates more readily in certain persons, requiring more frequent brushing as well as personalised professional dental care schedule.
