When sticky plaque is left on our teeth and under the gumline, it can harden and turn into a substance called tartar. Tartar forms around and under the gumline and is often yellow or brown in colour. Tartar is most commonly found behind the front teeth, as plaque can easily form here and be missed when brushing and flossing.
Unfortunately, tartar cannot be removed with brushing and flossing as it has become so hard. Home remedies can be dangerous and cause damage to your gums and enamel, so the best option is to visit your dentist for your regular check-ups. Your dentist may recommend a deep cleaning treatment if tartar is present beneath the gumline or if you have gum disease.
Dentists used a specialist scaling instrument to remove tartar from above and below the gumline. Once the tartar is removed, your teeth with feel smoother and cleaner. You may also notice the spaces between your teeth are more visible as tartar has been removed.
Tartar removal can help reverse early-stage gum disease.
