How is dental calculus formed? Three major dangers of dental calculus you should know


Abstract: The mouth is an indispensable part of our body. The nutrients our body needs every day can be absorbed by our body through the mouth, so we must clean our mouth every day, but dental calculus is also called dental calculus. Tartar is a very common oral disease. So, what are the causes of dental calculus? What are the dangers of dental calculus?

1. It has something to do with eating habits. If you often eat soft and fine foods, tartar will accumulate faster. On the contrary, if you eat rough foods, tartar will be blocked.

2. People who consume a lot of sucrose will have more soft tartar deposits due to the formation of more dental plaque.

3. The tooth surface is rough, the teeth are not arranged neatly, and there are restorations that are difficult to clean, etc.

Tartar easily absorbs bacteria or toxins, and the local irritation of the tartar itself can cause the gums to become red, swollen, bleeding and inflamed, forming periodontal pockets. When periodontal pockets are formed, it is easier for food residues, dental plaque and calculus to accumulate. , this new accumulation further damages the deeper periodontal ligament. As a result of such a continuous vicious cycle, all periodontal supporting tissues are eventually destroyed, hindering chewing function, increasing the burden of digestion, and in severe cases, causing tooth loosening. , fall off.

After knowing the reasons for the formation of dental calculus, we also need to know the harm that will occur. So, what harm does dental calculus cause?

1. Dental calculus can cause periodontitis

Dental calculus easily absorbs bacteria or toxins, and the local irritation of the calculus itself causes the gums to become red, swollen, bleeding and inflamed. Due to the irritation of subgingival calculus and the toxins produced by the attachments, ulcers develop on the inside of the gums and are prone to healing, causing bleeding gums and aggravation of periodontal infection, thus leading to tartar teeth. Peripheral inflammation occurs.

2. Dental calculus adheres to the teeth and affects the appearance.

It also affects the effectiveness of dental denture restoration. The presence of dental calculus in removable dentures (also known as denture removal) will be close to the tooth surface, which can easily cause food debris to accumulate on the dentures and cause oral inflammation.

When dental calculus accumulates to a certain extent, it will cause gum disease or periodontal disease, resulting in bad breath.
