Dog plaque vs tartar in horses

It is possible to have both plaque and tartar around your horse's teeth?

I would like to start by saying that I love horses. So, I have heard a few horses being treated by a vet in the past and I know that the vet mentioned tartar. I also know that my horse has problems in his mouth, so I wonder if it is possible that plaque and tartar could coexist or is this impossible? I am not very educated on the topic. I just started riding 2 months ago. My horse has been around horses his whole life. He loves to buck. It was recommended to me that I have an xray done, but I want to do it myself. I will be asking my vet to show me where I can find the most sensitive areas. I will have an xray done at a local feed and seed to compare and hopefully make my vet show me where the plaque and tartar is the most concentrated.

Yes it is possible to have both around your horse's teeth but that is rare.

If I remember correctly plaque forms on the surface of the enamel, then becomes hard when the enamel breaks down due to wear. The white color of plaque is created by mineral build up.

Tartar is sticky, white, and hard. It is formed in the grooves and valleys of the enamel as it is exposed to food particles.

If your horse has any kind of gingivitis, periodontal disease, a large bone or metal fillings, you have a higher risk of having both plaque and tartar on the teeth.

Ok, thank you. So, how can tartar coexist with plaque? Also, if plaque and tartar are in the same area, does it mean it is possible that plaque may go into the grooves and valleys? Or would that only happen if both are in one area, not if they are in two separate areas? I am confused because I know that if you brush teeth, they are cleaner if you brush all areas and all surfaces. But what I was saying is that my daughter said that she can't brush all areas and all surfaces of her teeth in each quadrant due to being in college, but if you go over two areas in a quadrant, such as the right lateral incisor and the left lateral incisor, there is a different area where plaque and tartar can be removed. Does that mean that tartar can be found where there is plaque?

There is no difference between tartar and plaque. There is also no difference between two separate areas of the same tooth and one area of a tooth where the plaque and tartar are in one area and at the same time.

It's important to remember that there are no clean areas in the mouth, there is no one area where you can say, "Well, I brushed my right lateral incisor and my left lateral incisor and I brushed my right central incisor and my left central incisor," and then you're done.

However, brushing both sides of the same tooth at once could be beneficial because if you do that, you are brushing the gum line. You are always brushing above the gum line when brushing teeth.

In other words, you are always brushing at the same time in the same direction in relation to the gum line.

Bacteria love the area above the gum line. A study in 2001 showed that when you were brushing above the gum line, a bacterial level of over 10,000,000 bacteria per square centimeter was not reached. That means you are more likely to see bacteria above the gum line.

When you brush the same area, you are also brushing at the same time.

If you are brushing above the gum line, you are brushing at the same time every time, but you are not always brushing above the gum line.

If you are brushing teeth, and you are brushing the same area in two different ways, you are probably not even brushing above the gum line for half of the time, because you are brushing all four quadrants at the same time.

In a quadrant, you are always brushing in the same direction, either upwards, or downwards. You are always brushing the same tooth twice.

When you brush teeth for a long period of time, you could be brushing with your toothbrush to one side or the other, which means you're only brushing one quadrant.

I find it easier to brush in two different ways at the same time than to brush in one way for a long period of time.

If you brush teeth in a certain way for a long period of time, you probably brush teeth a different way, but not as frequently. So brushing teeth in two different ways could be better than brushing teeth in one way for a long period of time.

That is what I found for my own teeth when I switched from one way to the other.

If you have an area of discoloration on your teeth, or if there is a dark patch, or you notice your tooth is getting discolored, and you want to fix it, you could be
