Question:
My 2 year old daughter has tartar on many of her teeth. She generally has good dental hygiene and diet. My 3 year old nephew has the same problem. Can they be more susceptible to tartar than most other children, and what else can we do to prevent more tartar forming? ...Jayne - Glasgow, UK

Answer:
Jayne, the reason you are seeing a lot of tartar or calculus is because your child has a more basic pH. You usually see this in older children and see more acidic pH's in younger children and they will usually have more cavities due to the acidic pH. When you go to your pediatric dentist, they will have the hygienist clean the tartar/calculus off. Also, to help this from reoccurring, make sure you brush and floss.
