Why is formed tartar? It is no secret that it is possible to detect 80% of people. Scientists say that the cause of its formation are most often defects in oral hygiene and factors that alter the protective properties and composition of saliva.
Formation of tartar begins with depositssoft plaque on the tooth necks. He eventually hardens soaking salts of calcium and phosphorus contained in saliva. Formed resistant plaque hinders cleaning of the teeth, tartar gradually increase in size, it covers the thick tooth coupling neck extends deeper in the gingival region, causes gingivitis and periodontitis results in periodontal disease and tooth loss.
Most often, the solid deposits of plaquesuffer front teeth.

The structure consists of tartar food residue,desquamated epithelium, microorganisms, inorganic substances such as calcium salts and phosphoric acid. Folk remedies against tartar is mainly based on the chemical dissolution of the solids contained in the solid coating.
