Prevention Strategies

Preventing plaque and tartar begins with diligent oral hygiene:

  • Brushing and Flossing: Regular brushing with fluoride toothpaste and daily flossing can remove plaque before it turns into tartar.
  • Mouthwash: Using an antiseptic mouthwash can help reduce bacteria and flush out food particles.
  • Balanced Diet: Reducing the intake of sugary and starchy foods can decrease the formation of plaque.
