Unfortunately, there are many things that threaten your smile each and every day, and tartar is one of them. Tartar is what plaque turns into when it’s not removed on a regular basis. It’s a toxic substance that can irritate the gums and create gum disease. It’s best to remove this substance as well as prevent it regularly.

In order to do so, you can first clean your teeth and gums daily. Please do so by brushing twice a day and flossing and rinsing daily. Whatever you do, do not forget to floss. Tartar likes to live in hard-to-reach areas that your brush cannot reach. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing can help you remove the plaque from your teeth regularly.

Second, use the proper tools to clean your smile. The best tools to use include a soft-bristled toothbrush, tartar-control toothpaste, easy-to-use floss, and mouthwash.

Third, make sure to visit Dr. Victor Zeines for your six-month check-ups. This is important because the cleaning treatment provided can completely remove the tartar from your teeth and along the gumline, helping you prevent gum disease.
