The Cause Of Black Spots On The Teeth?
At noon, my teeth have black spots on the molars but not in the middle of the top but on the edges. It was located when I saw that smile, its position on the edge not in the middle like a hollow tooth in general. Does that include cavities? It doesn’t feel sick. Should it be patched?
Hello, good morning Rimsftr.
Causes of blackness on the teeth (including the edges of the teeth) include:
Dental caries / cavities. If the tooth decay has not reached the center of the tooth which contains blood vessels and nerves, then usually it does not cause tartar pain, taking certain drugs, for example minocycline, chlorexidine mouthwash, etc. the habit of consuming dark drinks such as coffee smoking habits
We recommend that you check with your dentist for further treatment. The doctor will use special dental tools to see the state of the teeth directly. Handling must be adjusted according to the cause. If the condition you are experiencing is indeed a cavity, it may require a tooth filling. However, if your condition is caused by other causes, for example, just because of stains caused by cigarettes or drinks, then other measures such as bleaching techniques may be considered if it is very annoying.
I hope this helps. Greetings, dr. Denisa
