Will my bath be valid if I have build-up on my teeth and can’t reach every part?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
Sometimes I get a build-up on my teeth which does not go, even with brushing thoroughly several times a day. Will my bath be valid even though the water does not reach every part of my teeth?
I can remove this build-up from some areas if I scrape my teeth with a sharp object, but I am worried about damaging my teeth and injuring myself. Do I need to do this for my bath to be valid?

The build up on teeth does not affect your Ghusl or Wudhu at all.

If the build-up of tartar is bothering you, visit the dentist for a cleanup, and there after use teeth flossing before brushing your teeth, to ensure the build-up is decreased. In any case ask your dentist for more advice.

I think it would be hugely beneficial if you start using the Miswaak. There are manifold spiritual and worldly benefits of it.

Aisha Radhi-Allahu-Anha said:”The Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam said, ‘It (i.e. Miswak) is a purification for the mouth and it is a way of seeking Allah’s pleasures.” Sahih Bukhari
