My teeth on the back hurt a lot when I chew food with a slightly hard texture like (meat etc.), today, 24 Aug 18 I checked my teeth (checked myself in the mirror) when I saw that my teeth were black underneath the teeth near the area. gum. So I think “why is that? Is there any good suggestion so that the black teeth disappear because if you chew solid food sometimes it hurts. Thank you.

Hi Ershad,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Tooth pain can arise due to many factors. If your tooth that feels painful is blackish in color, then it is likely that you are experiencing caries, namely cavities. Indeed, often the holes in the teeth appear slowly and are not realized by the sufferer until they finally cause quite disturbing pain.


It could also be, the black spots that you experience arise as a result of plaque deposition on the hardened teeth which destroys the tooth enamel, which gives a blackish color. The destruction of tooth enamel that gets deeper can reach the root of the tooth and cause pain that is quite intense and persistent. This plaque can also make the gums and surrounding tissue inflamed (gingivitis and periodontitis) and cause pain. In some conditions, the buildup of plaque on the teeth can also be the focus of infection, which causes the teeth to die and an abscess forms which causes the color of the teeth to become darker (rot).


Our suggestion is that you check the condition of your teeth directly with the dentist. With a direct clinical evaluation, doctors can generally assess what the best treatment needs to be. If necessary, your doctor will recommend that you undergo a panoramic x-ray to assess the structure of your teeth and gums in more depth. As for what kind of treatment that might be carried out in the future, it can vary, namely by cleaning the dental plaque (scaling), tooth filling, extraction, and so on. Your doctor can also give you several medications to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and treat and prevent infection.


As an initial treatment, try to reduce your complaint in the following ways:

Gargle a lot with salt water
Brush your teeth regularly 2 to 3 times a day with fluoridated toothpaste
Not prickling your teeth (for example with a toothpick)
Limit chewing solid or hard food on the side of the tooth that hurts first (temporarily, not continuously)
Take paracetamol to improve pain
Control the health of teeth and gums to the dentist every 6 months

Hope it helps ..
