Tooth decay

I am not sure if it is called decay. Lower jaw's middle two incisors teeth back side have turned brownish yellow color. Not sure what exactly it is. Decay or upper coating has gone wrong. Its been years now since the shape and color got changed. What can be done? We have zero knowledge regards to teeth. Teeth are brushed once a day in the morning.

Hi, the problem which you have described looks like there is too much of tartar deposition on the back side of lower incisors. This can be removed by a procedure called Scaling which is done by a dentist. I would advice you to visit your dentist so that if there is any decay, it can also be identified. And we recommend brushing twice daily.

Hi....., Brush your teeth after you eat.. Brush using a fluoride-containing toothpaste at least twice a day, especially after meals... Floss at least once a day. Proper flossing removes food particles and plaque from between your teeth... Schedule regular dental checkups. See your dentist on a regular basis — generally once or twice a year — to have your teeth or dentures examined....
