I am 18 and I rarely brush. Just a handful of months ago, I got plaque at the insides of my bottom teeth and now it has become worse with tartar and plaque. How can I get rid of it?

Welcome to icliniq.com.
Irregular maintenance of good oral hygiene (like tooth brushing) can lead to tartar or plaque deposits around the teeth and on the gums. This weakens the jaw bones and mobilizes teeth in the long run. Bad breath can also be seldom avoided. However, prevention is better than cure and let me show you how to prevent it:
1. Get scaling and root planing done by your dentist.
2. Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing at least twice a day, along with using a good mouthwash.
3. Follow-up with your doctor at every 3 to 4 months to see how the treatment is working for you.
All these procedures are painless and you will have no difficulty or problem during or after the treatment.
