In brief: Yes

It can. The best person to call and ask about this is your dentist.
They might have an idea how to slow progression without having to make a doctor's visit and pay a bill.

In brief: Sure

I guess it could be connected and lead to increase is plaque thus tartar.
Or is heavy tartar causing inflamation resulting in gingivitis and other inflamatory responces.
