I have a very small blackish spot on one of my molars on my top jaw; I have no pain or other symptoms with it except that if I poke it with a pin, it does stick a bit. I'm pretty prone to cavities, but I would hate to have another. Is there anything else it could be?

  • The black spot on the molar can be either staining or decay, but if you are prone to cavities and there is a catch point then definately it is a decay and you have to get it restores before it gets too big. Incipient lesions can be reminerailsed by using fluoridated toothpastes but they are white in color and there is no catch point. for more info on dental caries and their types you can check this link in our website... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-dental-caries-7.aspx
