June 3, 2023

What Are These Black Spots?

Black spots on your teeth can be as disconcerting as finding a raisin in your cookie when you thought it was chocolate chip. But fear not; these spots are not alien invaders; they’re just signs of underlying dental issues that need to be addressed. It’s like your teeth are sending you an SOS in Morse code, and it’s time to respond.

Are You Sure They’re Cavities?

Just like not all superheroes wear capes, not all black spots are cavities. These spots can be as diverse as the coffee menu at your favorite café, with causes ranging from tartar buildup to tannins from certain beverages, aging, genetics, tobacco use, certain foods, certain antibiotics, fluorosis, celiac disease, previous dental work, and dental trauma.

Black Spots Caused By Cavities

Cavities are the usual suspects when it comes to black spots. They’re like the bad guys in a dental detective story, causing havoc by breaking down enamel and creating small holes known as cavities. The result? Dark spots that make your teeth look like they’ve been playing in the mud.

Non-Cavity Black Spots.

But let’s not be too quick to judge. Black spots can also be caused by a variety of other factors, including tartar buildup, staining from certain beverages, discoloration due to antibiotic use, fluorosis, celiac disease, dental restoration, and tobacco consumption. So, before you start pointing fingers, remember that not all black spots are guilty of being cavities.
