Calcium Deposits On Teeth
No matter how much you brush and floss, even a lifetime of excellent oral hygiene, can’t always prevent the occasional calcium deposits.
Children can also develop whites spots on their teeth through fluorosis, essentially getting too much fluoride in their diet.
What Causes Calcium Deposits?
Calcium deposits form when the plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth begins to attract calcium. Calcium phosphate hardens into tartar. Tartar attract even more bacteria and plaque, that can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and other damage to your tooth enamel.
Preventing Calcium Deposits
Preventing plaque with preventive care can help avoid so many dental problems including the white spots on your teeth from calcium buildup. Dental hygiene, including teeth cleanings every 6 months can do wonders for your oral health and the cosmetic appearance of your teeth.
Treating Calcium Deposits
Tartar can be removed with a professional cleaning in your dentist’s office, but the white spots left by calcium are a different story. If your teeth are still in good condition aside from their color, a professional teeth whitening can be a fast and effective solution to both yellowing and white spots.
