What causes tartar build up on teeth?
The dental assistant and I were stumped today during my visit. I take great care of my teeth, and she knows that.
I’ve been driving a lot of Sprite Zero, which has Phenylketonurics (aspartame, an artificial sweetener).
Could that cause tartar build up?
If not, what causes tartar build up?
