Black teeth after a traumatic dental injury

User Level:
Posted by: divahan  (10 years ago)
Dear everyone,

I had a nasty fall four weeks ago. One of my front teeth was loose after the accident but it seemed to become strong again; it was not loose at all so I left it alone. Yesterday, I noticed that my front and bottom teeth are turning black. None of them is hurting. Should I be concerned? Please advise me!

A tooth that turns black after a traumatic injury is usually a sign that the nerve tissue inside the tooth has died. In this cause, the tooth will need a root canal treatment. I would suggest you to go to the dentist and have your teeth checked out.

Teeth that are turning black are dead. You should visit the dentist ASAP to treat your teeth to avoid abscess (infection).
