You deserve a strong, healthy, and happy smile. Unfortunately, there are things in the world today that threaten your smile and harm your teeth and gums. Tartar is one of those things. It’s best to remove tartar on a regular basis so you can keep your smile free from major dental issues, especially gum disease. Fortunately, there are things you can do to remove the tartar from your chompers and gums.

The first thing is to keep up on oral hygiene, which means more than just brush your teeth every morning and every night. It also means you need to floss between your teeth once a day and rinse your mouth daily. People typically brush every morning and then brush, floss, and rinse at night. These things can help you remove the plaque from your teeth, which is the substance that turns into tartar if it’s not removed.

The second thing is to use the proper oral hygiene tools while you brush, floss, and rinse. It’s strongly encouraged to use tools that have been approved by the American Dental Association. This is because that approval proves that the tool is safe and effective for use. It’s also best to clean your smile with tartar-control toothpaste that has fluoride, a soft-bristled toothbrush, antiseptic mouthwash, and easy-to-use floss.

The third thing is to visit Dr. Galina Zhukova at Paramus Dental & Implant Center twice a year for your six-month check-ups. The treatment provided is the only treatment that can completely eliminate tartar from your smile.
