Black spots on teeth
I have black spots on my bottom teeth and 1 of top teeth. It is on 5-6 teeth and I am scared. What is this?
Black spots on teeth can often be a sign of early decay. The other option is that this is just staining, especially if you smoke or drink a lot of coffee. We would recommend visiting the dentist, who will be able to tell you if it is decay or staining. The dentist will be able to remove any decay and place fillings or remove any staining with a cleaning.
Please be reassured that this is nothing to be worried about. This is routine dentistry. If you are worried about dental treatment in general there are options to have a prescription to take before your appointment to help you relax or you can look in to having sedation for any treatment needed. Both of these options are very common as many people have a fear of dental treatment.
