Severe tooth decay often ends up with an extraction. However, the dentist will try to avoid this and treat the problem before it gets out of control.
Once any tooth discolouration is noticed, it should be discussed with your dentist to discover exactly why this has occurred. While decay is likely, there is often a fairly simple explanation such as:
– Tea and coffee
– Smoking and nicotine products
– Certain medications
