You have heard about plaque and tartar, and you know both are bad for your teeth. But why exactly, and what’s the difference between plaque vs. tartar?

  • Plaque is a sticky film made up of harmful bacteria. It coats your teeth and allows the bacteria to damage your enamel.
  • It turns hard over time and becomes tartar, the tough remains of those bacteria.

Not only does this lead to cavities, it can give you gum disease. That’s why you need to call Dr. Callow today at 734-404-7336 or use our online form. At our Plymouth, MI dental office, you can get the dental exam and cleaning you need to help control both of those problems.
