In brief: What is still left?

If you are brushing and flossing regularly, either you are doing it too hard, or there is tartar left that you're not able to clean out.
Soft tartar (plaque) can be removed by brushing abnd flossing, but hard tartar (calculus) needs to be removed by a dentist or hygienist. Is there hard tartar that you can't see or reach, or is there soft tartar that you're missing?
