Calculus breaking off

User Level:

Posted by: pamperme  (6 years ago)
Hello!

Bits of calculus have been breaking off of my teeth for two the last two weeks. They look like pebbles and are hard and yellowish to brownish-black in color. You can see from my teeth where they came off. They usually come from the back part of my front and back teeth.

Two years ago, I had a deep cleaning to remove huge amount of calculus on almost all of my teeth. I did not have the chance to visit the dentist again since then because of my busy schedule at work. I have to admit, I was lax with my oral hygiene for the past several years. I never flossed but I brushed my teeth twice a day, never had mouthwash rinse also.

Why is calculus breaking off? I have read somewhere that you need a professional help to remove tartar/calculus but why do mine come off easily? Is it possible that what is breaking off is a part of my tooth? Please help! My dental appointment is in three weeks and I am now very much bothered with this. Thank you in advance!

Hello. Your best option to visit a dentist to have x-ray in order to make sure it is indeed calculus and not your teeth chipping off.
Calculus is not as hard as our teeth and contains bacteria. Over-occumulation may result in breaking off. It needs to be cleaned by a hygienist . Unfortunately brushing alone is not enough to prevent plaque and calculus build up. To avoid developing gingivitis and if not treated periodontitis eventually you must maintain good oral hygiene. Along with brushing, floss and rinse with a mouth wash. I know having a busy lifestyle makes it hard to have time for oral hygiene, but it is your health and well being that is most important.

In fact, many, many people are reporting that tartar has stopped forming and is in fact flaking or breaking naturally off of their teeth as they:
1) used micro-gentle Bass brushing and
2) safe, anti-microbial tooth powders and essential oils for their normal oral hygiene, and
3) made a few healthy changes to their diet and lifestyles.

Think about it: NO animal in nature, and virtually no people on earth outside of 20th century North America brush or floss. Certainly not with any regularity. Nature cleans the teeth spontaneously. No animal or human ever has calculus tartar regularly scraped off their teeth.

Do you doubt this? The answers are in the questions; I recommend that you google "spontaneous remineralization of teeth" and also visit Orawellness dot com. The dental research is public, and profound.

Every tissue can regenerate. Health is your natural state.
