Hello, thank you for trusting HealthReplies.com.
Teeth are organs that function to chew and grind food. Teeth are found in the oral cavity along with the mucous membranes of the mouth, tongue, and salivary glands.
The remnants of food in the mouth can mix with saliva and the cells of the oral mucous membranes to form plaque that sticks to the teeth. In addition, it should be noted that in the oral cavity there are bacteria as normal colonies.
Plaque that sticks to the teeth can cause bacteria to thrive. These bacteria can damage teeth, causing teeth to become brittle, known as caries. Caries can be seen as black in color on the teeth. If caries has occurred, the tooth can be cavities so that bacteria can enter it and infect it. This can cause toothache, and/or a buildup of pus in the area around the tooth (abscess).
Plaque exposed to saliva can also harden into tartar. Tartar feels rough on the teeth, and is brown in color and causes bad breath.
We recommend that you check with the nearest dentist. Dentists need to examine directly to determine the abnormalities that occur and appropriate treatment.
While waiting for a doctor's examination, you can rinse your mouth using an over-the-counter antiseptic mouthwash, and take over-the-counter pain relievers.
