- Microorganisms that accumulate in the tartar and plaque destroy not only the tooth but also harm the gums.
- The tartar and plaque promote the growth of bacteria in the oral cavity that harms the teeth.

- The tartar and plaque can create a dental pocket on the tooth. This happens as a result of the fact that the tartar slowly accumulates along the tooth hole. The appearance of a pocket entails the separation of a neck of the tooth from the gum. If the formed pocket reaches a large size, it can lead to tooth loss.
