The best prevention is not allowing the tartar deposits to appear. Some advice for you:
- Brush your teeth regularly – twice a day for at least 2 minutes. A common 30-second toothbrushing is not able to remove the plaque film and tartar deposits. Using a soft-fibre brush is the optimal choice to be able to clean thoroughly each tooth. Some studies have resulted in favor of electric toothbrushes for better plaque removal than mechanical ones.
- Getting toothpaste containing fluoride aids in repairing the tooth enamel.
- Teeth thread usage – it is the only way to cleanse in-between spaces and remove the plaque.
- Rinse daily – use antiseptic mouthwash in your daily routine to extract the left bacteria that cause plaque deposits.
- Mind your dietary routine – Exposure to sugar and starch-rich food increases the level of acids in your mouth. The low-sugar diet leads to better oral health. A good practice would be to brush your teeth after a meal and to try consuming enough water afterward.
- Reduce smoking – studies show that smoking increases the risk of tartar deposits.
