| | Black discoloration along gumline
I don't know what this is, and I'm wondering if it is tooth decay or some form of disease. Along the inside gumline of my back molars, my teeth are seriously discolored --they are black. But only above the gumline, in a line. I looked around with one of those small dental mirrors, and found that it's also happening along the gumline of the molars on the top teeth, on both sides of my mouth. The gums around these teeth are sensitive and bleed when I poke around.
I brush with an electric toothbrush 2 times a day, and I floss regularly. I've always had what my dentist calls "soft teeth" and am really prone to cavities. The teeth that are discolored are practically all aluminum (?) fillings.
There isn't any pain in these teeth at all, except for around the gum where it's sore.
Has anyone ever heard of anything like this before? Im scared I'm going to lose my teeth! I'm going to call my dentist tomorrow first thing, but I wanted to know if anyone had ever had anything like this before. Thanks!
