A female asked:
If a person doesn't floss on a regular basis but you use a power toothbrush every day does the tartar still build up?

Tartar: Its not so much the tartar , but just below the contact point, the spot where floss pops through is a common spot for people who don't floss to get cavities. I've seen patients with what otherwise look like spotless teeth and then I look at the X-rays and its evident they don't floss. Think of it as part of cleaning your whole body, is there any part you would use soap on ?
