Question

I need a lot of tartar removed and I’m so scared! Is it normal for chunks to break off randomly?

Answer

Don’t panic! Just ask yourself this one question. When that build up of tartar broke off, it didn’t hurt, right?

Dentists and hygienists see these walls of tartar all day. It’s like limescale in the bottom of a kettle.

If you visit a caring hygienist who will take things slowly and give you the control to signal him/ her to stop whenever you need, it is entirely painless to clean away.

Then the true assessment of your gum health can be done, and so can your even more thorough Daily Self-Performed Care. Your tartar is blocking you from accessing some parts of your teeth and gum pockets.
