If you’ve noticed one of your teeth darkening, you might be feeling a bit concerned. A darkened tooth can be a sign of various dental issues, and it’s essential to understand what might be causing it. Could a root canal be the solution?

Why Is My- ooth-Darkening - Anderson & BroadberryWhat Causes a Tooth to Darken?

Teeth can darken for several reasons, including:

  • Tooth decay: This is the destruction of your tooth’s hard, outer layer (enamel) caused by a buildup of plaque and bacteria.
  • Trauma: If a tooth has been hit or knocked, the nerve can be damaged, leading to a darkening of the tooth.
  • Ageing: Over time, our teeth can naturally darken as the enamel thins and the yellowish dentin beneath becomes more visible.
  • Staining: Certain foods, drinks (like coffee, tea, and red wine), and tobacco can stain teeth.
  • Internal tooth issues: Sometimes, the pulp inside the tooth can become infected or die, causing the tooth to darken.

Can a Root Canal Help?

A root canal is a dental procedure that involves removing the inflamed or infected pulp inside your tooth, cleaning and shaping the inside of the root canal, then filling and sealing the space. This procedure is typically performed to save a tooth that is severely decayed or infected.

If your tooth is darkening due to an infection or dead pulp inside the tooth, a root canal may indeed help. By removing the source of the problem and sealing the tooth, a root canal can prevent further darkening. However, it’s important to note that a root canal won’t reverse the darkening that has already occurred. In such cases, your dentist may recommend additional treatments, such as teeth whitening or a dental crown, to improve the tooth’s appearance.

Seek Dental Advice

A darkening tooth is not something to ignore. It’s a sign that something is going on with your oral health, and it’s important to seek advice from a dental professional such as Anderson & Broadberry Dental Care.

I recently had three teas taken out at the top and because of my cerebral palsy and diabetes. I was in a lot of pain afterwards a week later I went back to the practice because it wasn’t getting any better and the pain was getting worse. My dentist Sophie was absolutely fantastic she took really good care of me And got me out of pain in no time and she was very thorough And I couldn’t thank you enough for what she had done for me. I’ve got to go back in a week to see if everything is okay no the dentist enormous 65 years in life has ever asked me to come back before but Sophie has top rank

Fantastic dentists. The reception team are always polite and helpful. I have had a number of dentists in the 20 years I have been a customer and all have been brilliant. I am currently with Holly who is amazing and has done a wonderful job with my Invisalign and then a few cosmetic changes. She has a great assistant too, which makes a usually stressful experience into a fun one. Highly recommend.

I'm a wuss when it comes to going to the dentist, but I've just had my smile spruced up by the hygienist, Sinead (hope I've spelt that right) and Sherron (hope I've got that right too) who both put me at ease with their banter and turned me out looking 10 years younger. Thanks Derrol

This is the best dental care I’ve ever received. I’m fearful patient but.my dentist (Sophie) has always found a way to calm my anxiety and never rushed me. I asked that if it was possible for them not to tell me what they were doing if possible legally (obviously they have to tell me some things) and i know it’s silly but she didn’t make me feel silly and agreed. I have disabilities too which make laying in the chair uncomfortable but we worked out a system of me lifting my hand if I need to move while she’s working on me. My fears have always been taken into consideration and I’ve never been made to feel bad because of them (childhood trauma yay). They give me distraction techniques and said they’d stop if it got too much (so far not needed to do that). Even after telling them I’d need to be referred to hospital because of one of my conditions for extraction procedures they were great and told me that fine. I’ll never go anywhere else now. Thank you Sophie for helping get over my fears without making me feel like a baby
