Cavity related.
I see a tiny black spot on my tooth. It was there when I had my last filling in February. My dentist checked and made sure that that spot wasn't a cavity. It is possible to have become a cavity between February and now? Also if so how can I feel to know if it is a cavity or not?

Not all black spots in your tooth are decay or it might turn into a decay . Some times it might be stain in your tooth fissures and pits. Your dentist had suggested you the correct thing.only . But still keep a watch on the dark spot if it increases in size or change in colour visit him immediately. For this reason only we advise to visit a dentist once in every six months .

The black spot is probably a deep pit which gets stained and is seen in many teeth. Whether or not it has developed decay has to be checked by a dentist. Normally six monthly check ups are recommended
