Can I Clean The Tartar Again If The Previous One Is Less Clean?
Hello. 2 days ago I went to the dentist to clean the tartar, but in my opinion it’s not too clean because there are still remnants of tartar left and my gums are still injured. Do I have to clean another tartar? Thank you

Tartar is a layer of dirt attached to the teeth due to improper cleaning of teeth and when it has hardened it is difficult to clean with just a toothbrush. If left unchecked, tartar will cause inflammation of the gums (gingivitis), periodontitis, cavities, and others. Tartar can only be cleaned by a dentist using a device called a scaler.
Normally, the process of scaling or cleaning tartar requires only one visit with a process for approximately 30 to 60 minutes (depending on the number and severity of tartar). However, the procedure for this procedure depends in detail on each doctor, taking into account the condition of your teeth at that time. Do not hesitate to ask your dentist about the actions taken and long-term plans for the condition of your teeth, because every patient has the right to obtain this information.
The things you can do to prevent tartar are:
Brush your teeth regularly, at least 2 times a day after every meal. If there is an area that is not covered by a toothbrush, you can use mouthwash or dental floss check your teeth every 6 months. Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption. So, hopefully it can help . You can also read other articles about tartar and tooth scaling.
