| | White junk on teeth
I got my braces off last Wednesday, and I immediately noticed white stains/spots along the gumline of my molars. I had those orthodontic bands back there, so there was very little tooth exposed to air for four years (had braces a long time). The bands were also right up against my gums. Anyway, I'm thinking the white spots are tartar that's built up over the years that I haven't been able to get when brushing. I also tried scratching some off with a dental pick, with no luck. Anybody have any idea what this is, and how hard it will be to remove? I'm already planning on getting my teeth cleaned soon.
