Assalamuallaikum doctor. NGood evening. I want to ask. I am already 14 years old but I haven’t lost all my teeth. And my canines have not come off, and my canines are black, maybe because I was a kid I used to eat candy / chocolate too often. So how about this? Will my tooth grow back or not if I pull it out? Because sometimes I feel embarrassed after 14 years but my teeth are still black. NPlease give answers and suggestions from the doctor😊
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Every human being has two sets of teeth, baby teeth and permanent teeth. Every time a baby tooth falls out, permanent teeth grow to replace it. Or it could be that the permanent teeth have grown first and then push the baby teeth over them. The description of the location of the teeth on the human skull is as shown below.
So as long as there is a spare tooth on it, the possibility of replacement teeth to grow again is still there. But regarding your concern, it is necessary to check first what is the cause of the black teeth.
Black teeth can occur because:
Drink something dark
Drug side effects
Plaque buildup on teeth
To find out this, you must have your teeth checked by a dentist first. Your dentist will find out the cause and the best treatment for your complaint by performing a dental x-ray and direct examination. This is important because tooth extraction is not the main treatment given to black teeth.
Meanwhile, keep your teeth clean by regularly brushing your teeth at least 2x a day, reducing drinking and eating that contain sugar, and cleaning between your teeth with mouthwash or dental floss. We wish you and your family good health.
So hope it helps.
