I know this may seem a little off-the-wall, but I was curious if anyone has noticed an increase increase in the build up of dental calculus on a high protein diet?
I recently switched from a dental cleaning every 6 months to every 4 months. My hygenist commented on how fast I build up tartar on my teeth, to the point where she sent me home with one of her scrapers so I could get the back of my lower teeth in between cleanings.
I floss, use mouthwash and brush 2x per day. Ok, I floss for a month after my cleaning and a week before my cleaning.
Anyway… anyone know if high protein diets cause an increase in tartar (calcium) production in saliva?
