Problem with excessive tartar buildup
My dental hygienist tells me that I have excessive tartar buildup. She tells me that there's really nothing I can do about it.
I'm thinking that certain foods could reduce the buildup, or maybe not eating certain types of foods would do help. Or maybe using certain herbs could change my body chemistry.
I already brush and floss twice a day and use a fluoride rinse at night. Not sure what else I can do.
@uttam Where is your tartar build-up specifically?
You could try different toothbrushes and toothpaste.
Some meds, smoking, etc can cause excessive dryness in the mouth. If you don't have decay or gum disease or mouth dryness, maybe look at how you brush. Mouth moistening sprays or gels might help as might chewing sugar-free gum.
