Making it harder for preying tartar

* About a month ago, my dentist commented, "You're lucky. You have good saliva." He followed with an explanation of how saliva pH affects tartar development.
* Actually, it might be more accurate to say that "bad saliva" makes it easier for tartar. From what I've found, I don't think that any saliva actually impedes tartar. Rather, it's that some saliva is more conducive to tartar.
* Consider also the role that elbows play in preventing tartar. (Are you confused?)
