Toothpaste for Tartar Control
Potassium pyrophosphate, sodium pyrophosphate in a combined concentration of 5%. Also sodium fluoride 0.24% equivalent to 900 ppm
Mode of Action:
- When toothpaste containing the soluble tetra sodium/ potassium pyrophosphate is applied to the teeth and gums, a chemical bonding process occurs.
- Pyrophosphates (crystal growth inhibitor) act as chelating agent and removes calcium from the saliva to form a soluble complex that can be rinsed away with water thereby controlling new calculus buildup.
- Any calcium phosphate that has not yet bonded to teeth is attracted to the sodium pyrophosphate. When the new compound mixes with water, it is completely dissolved.
- The toothpaste cannot dissolve the tartar that has already bonded with the enamel, but it can stop future deposits from forming.
- Fluoride also inhibits the metabolism of acid-producing bacteria thereby indirectly help in tartar control in addition to controlling cavities.
Individuals clinically diagnosed as heavy calculus formers

- XTAR should be recommended for minimum 8-12 weeks and after which doctor should evaluate the results and continue further treatment
