Most people get tartar build-up on the back sides of their lower front teeth. If you want to remove this build-up with a dental professional instrument, this will help get the job done. It has a sickle end and a right angle scaler end, both very sharp and capable of removing tartar. Scale by engaging the tartar below the gumline, and then sweeping the scaler upward against the root and crown of the tooth. This will removed the tartar deposits. This is best done with good lighting and in front of the bathroom mirror. Sometimes a hand dental mirror is needed to fully visualize the tartar.

If the person uses this time to clean his teeth better and to rinse with warm salt water, the gums will improve. The person's teeth will be easier to scale.

Stay away from the cheaper sets you can find on Amazon (i.e. the 10 for $10) as those are really flimsy and not designed for real dental needs. All you need is one really good one like this one and you are good to go!
