Calculus is the technical term for the hard substance that forms on teeth. The common name for it is TARTAR.  It has the texture of a cinder block-lots of nooks and crannies that bacteria hide in. It cannot be brushed off. Bacteria cause all the oral diseases!  As well as bad breath! Removal of tartar is part of a dental cleaning.
