Plaque is a sticky substance that builds up on the teeth. If it’s not removed through brushing and flossing, it hardens. This hardened plaque is known as tartar or dental calculus. Tartar can have negative effects on your oral health, so it shouldn’t be allowed to build up. No matter what you may hear or read, it’s not a good idea to remove tartar at home.
