Hello Kindly post the pictures for the correct diagnosis. Black scales can be both temporary or permanent. In case, it’s temporary, it can be due to staining ( tea/coffee) , iron intake, or increased iron content in water & many other reason & can be easily cleaned by scaling but the permanent ones cannot be cleaned by anything.
Next Steps
Brush twice daily & take card of oral hygiene.
