Why do I have black tartar on my teeth?

Why do I have black tartar on my teeth?

Black tartar is a common dental problem that results from plaque. Calculus can come in different colours, including black. Learn here what black tartar is, how to remove tartar, and better yet, how to prevent it.

Why do I have black tartar between my teeth?

Black-coloured tartar is caused by certain dyes in food, alcohol and tobacco products. This calculusis visible in the edge of the tooth. It is like a black border, but tartar can also take place on the non-visible part, under the gums.

Why you want to remove black Calculus

You want to remove black tartar primarily because it is not attractive. People feel more confident with a radiantly beautiful white smile, while black coloured calculus makes us feel the opposite. Besides, dark tartar is also a problem for your teeth. It can lead to inflammation, especially under the gums. In the bad case, there is even a risk of jawbone loss.

How to remove black tartar between your teeth yourself

Good oral hygiene that involves brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing regularly is the best way to prevent plaque. That way, the formation of calculus will not have a chance either. Dark tartar can be prevented by not smoking, moderate alcohol consumption and avoiding certain foods.

If you have Dark-coloured tartar anyway, unfortunately you cannot remove it by brushing alone. For this, you need a special tartar remover.  You can also make an appointment at the dentist or dental hygienist. Depending on the severity, a step-by-step plan will be drawn up to remove the black-coloured tartar.

Making teeth whiter by removing black calculus

Black tartar is a deposit that needs to be removed. You can do this yourself with a calculus remover, which is a device that vibrates the tartar loose. You can also have it removed by a dentist or dental hygienist.  Don’t worry, as the whole process is painless. In less severe cases, the dentist can do it manually, possibly with the help of a tartar remover.

If calculus on teeth has already caused inflammation, a longer procedure is often needed. For this, the dentist first performs a diagnosis.
