How to Prevent Plaque and Tartar with Listerine Mouthwash?

The residue of food can build up into plaque on teeth, and if not removed may form into tartar. Tartar — also known as dental calculus — is an accumulation of plaque and minerals from your saliva that harden over time. It can coat the exterior of teeth and invade below the gum line which can be easily stained by food and drink.

4 Tips To Prevent Plaque and Tartar Buildup

When tartar forms on your teeth, a professional treatment known as scaling becomes the only way to get rid of it completely. A dentist will be able to perform this process using special instruments to scrape tartar from all areas of your mouth. However, plaque and tartar are much easier to prevent than treat. Follow these 4 tips to avoid tartar build-up altogether:

Tip 1: Brush and floss regularly

Make sure you brush your teeth twice daily, for about 2 minutes. Brush properly even in the hard-to-reach places, these are a breeding ground for germs. Next, make sure you floss to remove any food particles that are stuck between the teeth. These two steps can't be ignored in your dental care routine.

Tip 2: Pick a tartar-control and fluoride toothpaste

Fluoride is essential to help repair enamel damage. Check your toothpaste's ingredients to make sure it contains fluoride and other bacteria-fighting ingredients.

Tip 3: Rinse twice daily using a mouthwash

Use an antiseptic mouthwash twice daily; swish for 30 seconds using a tartar prevention mouthwash to keep your mouth clean and fight bacteria that cause plaque. Mouthwash reaches places in your mouth that your brush cannot, effectively fighting germs all over your mouth.

Tip 4: Clean right after you eat

Sugary and starchy foods help germs thrive, that's why you need to make sure you clean your teeth immediately after eating. Brush your teeth and use a mouthwash regularly to ensure no bits or residue are left behind for bacteria to feed on.
