Tartar (Calculus) is dental plaque that hardens if not removed. If your saliva is calcium rich, you may be predisposed to tartar build up. It is frequently found on the inside of the lower front teeth because saliva is sprayed from ducts against these surfaces. Tartar can only be removed by a dental professional.
