Why is tartar considered harmful?
If tartar is not removed, it keeps on accumulating and calcifying on your teeth and gums. It is hard and porous in nature, and this becomes a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. Tartar damages the teeth and gums, which can lead to severe diseases like gingivitis, enamel damage, gum diseases as well as loss of teeth. Tartar can also impact bone health by causing bone degeneration or even heart disease in severe cases.
