Generally, dental calculus is formed by the calcification of dental plaque. At first, it is still soft and soft. It can be removed by brushing mechanical friction. However, the calculus adheres to the tooth surface over time and becomes very hard. There is no way, otherwise, the gums will bleed more and the calculus will fall off. Some patients use vinegar to rinse their mouths, which will corrode their teeth and irritate the oral mucosa.
Is there any way to get the tartar out?
- It is recommended to use ultrasonic cleaning to break the calculus into pieces and discharge it, which will cause scratches on the tooth surface. There is some wear, but it is very small. It is not too much to wash it once a year for prevention. It will be polished later. To restore smoothness, because of the destruction of dental calculus, plaque is more likely to accumulate after gingival recession. After washing, it should be reviewed regularly for half a year.
- In addition to scaling, there is also subgingival scaling. After local anesthesia, the depth of the periodontal pocket is detected, and the ultrasonic scaler removes the dental calculus around the root. There are several points before and after each tooth, and it takes 2 to 4 times to eradicate. , and perform root planing. If the periodontal pocket is deep, flap surgery is required, the diseased tissue is cut off, and the residue is removed.
Why does calculus cause periodontal disease?
- There is a chance after the accumulation of dental plaque, which means that there are a lot of food residues and bacteria continue to breed. At the beginning, it will stimulate the gingival tissue, leading to gingivitis. After calcification into calculus, the bacteria multiply and secrete toxins, and the gingival papilla is swollen and oppressed. Later, the gums receded.
- With the resorption of alveolar bone, there are more and more periodontal pockets, dental calculus invades the inside of the gum, and then the infection spreads, periodontitis evolves from mild to severe, the surface of calculus is rough, and more plaque adheres, In fact, the calculus is wrapping the tooth, not the alveolar bone, and the tooth falls out automatically.
In addition to scaling teeth, there is also subgingival scaling, scraping off the root calculus, remember to brush your teeth vertically, rinse your mouth after meals to reduce inflammation and bacteria, and also wash away tartar with floss to prevent calculus from growing quickly.
