How do I get rid of calcium deposits?


Answer by  worker2614 (137)

If you have actual calcium deposits on your teeth, visit your dentist. Most calcium deposits can be removed during a routine cleaning. If they are not calcium deposits, it may actual be the beginning of decay or decalcification. This problems is more severe and requires dental work or veneers to remove the spots.

You can get rid of calcium deposits in your mouth by a procedure called scaling or oral prophylaxis. The soft deposits,calculus and stains are removed by using ultrasonic scalers or hand scalers.

There is nothing really that you can do to get rid of the calcium deposits. Most of the time your dentist can use special instruments to take it off for you.

These calcium deposits are called tartar which make the tooth surface rough providing an ideal medium for further accumulation and growth of dental plaque. These heavy deposits called calculus are formed if proper brushing and cleaning is not done. Gum recession takes place. So oral prophylaxis should be done.
