Why does tartar grow under the gums?
Oukaijie explained that dental calculus usually deposits at the junction of the tooth surface and the gums and gathers bacteria, causing symptoms such as gingivitis, bad breath, red and swollen gums, and bleeding. If it is not treated, it will become bigger and thicker. Then, it continuously compresses the gums and stimulates the periodontal tissue, causing the crown to spread downward, the gums to shrink gradually, and the alveolar bone to slowly absorb. Over time, the teeth gradually loosen, and the calculus on the gums will attack the roots of the teeth.

Oukaijie said that ordinary supragingival calculus can be cleaned up through tooth scaling, while subgingival calculus requires subgingival curettage.
