When we chew food, its fragments tend to stick to our teeth forming a thin white film called plaque. Plaque is made up of food particles, saliva and harmful bacteria. This film if not cleaned, gets hardened within 48-72 hours and changes its colour to yellow. The yellow deposit thus formed is known as tartar or calculus.

This calculus is almost impossible to remove with a toothbrush and also tends to cause bad breath and bleeding gums. If left for a prolonged period of time, this can cause severe gum disease and loosening of teeth. The bacteria harboured by the calculus, can also travel into your bloodstream and can attach itself to cholesterol plaques in the heart/brain vessels significantly increasing your chances of heart attacks and strokes! 

The only way to get rid of calculus once it is formed is by a professional teeth cleaning procedure also known as scaling and polishing. Thus, it is extremely important to get a regular dental check-up and get your teeth cleaned (scaling done) every 4 to 6 months.
