Question about brown spot on upper left canine tooth
« on: June 18, 2010, 05:11:44 am »
Hey how ya doin? I noticed this tiny brown spot on my left upper canine tooth, and it is near the back part of that tooth. I had gotten a routine checkup and cleaning Midmarch of 2010. Also, on that same canine tooth, in the front part, I had a composite filling put in at the same time as the dental cleaning. In regards to the brown spot, it is not sensitive to poking or probing. When I try to scratch it off, I noticed this layer over that part of the tooth and I can't scratch it off with my fingernail or another tool like a sharp screwdriver or knife. I'd like to ask my dentist about it, but I had a sensitivity problem about 2 months ago with one of my teeth and saw the dentist about it and he charged me $75 for a 5 minute evaluation and all he did was give me some extra fluoridated toothpaste. If i go for another evaluation and I'm told it's just a stain, I would feel I wasted another $75 and that is a lot of money. Here are 3 pictures for reference..

Since my next 6 month cleaning and routine checkup is not due until mid September, what do you recommend I do?

Sincerley,
Bobby

my best guess is that is the beginning of tooth decay.  paleo phil, wodg and others may have advice for reversal.

what is your diet like?  i think wodg (IIRC) experienced reversal while zc.

Whatever it is, I personally would do nothing about it. Karies can revert. Or "harden" so it does not matter/hurt.
Your teeths look good. :D
Just take care you get all nutrients, add liver/organs if you are not eating them,
cut back on sugar/acid. Include wild edibles like Lindenleaves, Nettles.. they have good amount of nutrients too. Do not need much of them though!
All will be good. :)
