Tooth decay on left lateral incisor. Why?

Tooth decay on left lateral incisor. Why?

Out of balance.: Tooth decay happens when the acid caused by bacteria overwhelms the mineral structure of the tooth. In other words: the tooth endured more negative hits than it could handle. Teeth are strengthened by good hygiene, good salivary flow, and healthy mineral levels; they are weakened by sugar (which feed bacteria), hygiene insufficiency, or tooth compromise. Talk with your dentist about specifics ;-). ...Read more

Dark gray #14 tooth. Bump between hard palate and maxilla bone. No tooth pain. Hurts to press hard on bump. No discoloration of palate. Bump is spongy?

Dark gray #14 tooth. Bump between hard palate and maxilla bone. No tooth pain. Hurts to press hard on bump. No discoloration of palate. Bump is spongy?

Abcesses: It sounds like you may have an abcess. The fact that your tooth is discolored is consistent with this finding. The tooth may be non-vital ("dead"), and the pain and sponginess may be due to the abcess enlarging and the pus attempting to exit from under the tissues that cover the hard palate. Contact your dds as soon as possible and keep the area clean. Warm salt water rinses should help today. ...Read more

Just look for the second opinion with an oral surgeon. Oral surgeons will generally provide good ethical second opinions, but there may be other factors that can influence their judgment (unlikely). Hope it helps. ...Read more
