How to remove tartar from teeth? - Vivant Smile Design - Dental clínic in Algodónes.

Removing tartar from your teeth is essential to maintaining good oral health and a radiant smile. At Vivant Smile Design, we understand that tartar, also known as dental calculus, is a hardened buildup of bacterial plaque that can cause problems such as gingivitis, bad breath, and deterioration of tooth enamel if not treated properly.

What is tartar and how is it formed?

Tartar forms when plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that constantly builds up on teeth, is not removed with regular brushing and flossing. Over time, this plaque hardens and turns into tartar due to mineralization by the minerals present in saliva. Once tartar forms, it can no longer be removed with normal brushing and requires the intervention of a dentist to remove.

Tartar removal process at Vivant Smile Design

At Vivant Smile Design, we offer professional treatments to remove tartar effectively and safely. Our team of highly trained dentists use advanced techniques to perform deep dental cleaning, also known as prophylaxis, including:

  • Initial Evaluation: First, we perform a detailed evaluation of our patients’ oral health to determine the amount of tartar present and any other dental problems that may require attention.
  • Professional cleaning: We use specialized instruments, such as curettes and ultrasounds, to carefully scrape tartar from the surface of your teeth and below the gum line. This process is essential to remove even the most stubborn tartar that cannot be removed with home methods.
  • Dental Polishing: After removing tartar, we polish your teeth to remove surface stains and smooth the tooth surface, which helps prevent future plaque buildup.
Importance of prevention and continued care.

In addition to professional cleaning at our clinic, we educate our patients about the importance of good oral hygiene at home. We recommend brushing your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and rinsing with an antimicrobial mouthwash.

We promote regular dental check-ups every six months to monitor oral health, detect problems early, and perform preventive dental cleanings. Prevention is key to avoid the buildup of plaque and tartar, as well as to prevent periodontal disease and other more serious long-term dental problems.

At Vivant Smile Design, we are committed to providing our patients with professional and personalized treatments to remove tartar from their teeth. Our comprehensive dental care not only improves oral health, but also restores confidence in each patient’s smile.
