How To Clean Tartar?
Hello, my child is 13 years old rabbit teeth and fangs or all the teeth that appear when a smile is yellow-yellow like tartar. In what ways can it be eliminated? Thank you
Hello Darus, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
First of all it is necessary to know in advance whether the yellows on your child's teeth are plaque or have become tartar. If the yellow is just plaque, then plaque can be removed by brushing your teeth regularly. Toothbrush must be done in the right way so that it reaches all parts of the teeth (you can't just brush it once, but rub it repeatedly). Effective brushing will take at least 2 minutes. Use a toothpaste that can prevent plaque buildup and contains fluoride. It is advisable for children to also begin to be taught to do dental flosing, which is cleaning between teeth with dental floss. Teeth cleaning with dental floss aims to clean between teeth that cannot be reached by a toothbrush alone. Also make sure your child brushes his teeth at least 2 times a day, in the morning and at night before bed.
If plaque is allowed to accumulate for a long time, this plaque will harden and calcify into tartar. When it has become tartar, the tooth must be cleaned with special tools at the dentist. You won't be able to clean your tartar at home. You should also take your child to the dentist every 6 months to check and clean the teeth from plaque and tartar. If there are holes in the teeth, the dentist can also do fillings before the holes become bigger and become a hotbed of infection.
