Teeth Turning Black At Gum Line

No view

- Periodontal gum disease: This is a frequent cause for gum recession. When bacteria accumulate between the teeth and gum line, diseased gums loosen their grip on teeth. - Poor oral hygiene: Without adequate brushing and flossing, oral bacteria accumulate. The buildup results in plaque, which hardens into calculus..It is sticky, but regular brushing and flossing the teeth removes it. If plaque is not removed, it hardens and forms tartar. Only dental professionals can remove tartar; brushing and flossing do not affect it. Both plaque and tartar irritate the gums, causing inflammation and gum disease..
