Amalgam, a common dental restorative material, may turn adjacent areas of teeth black
or gray. Long term use of chlorhexidine, a mouthwash may encourage extrinsic stain
formation near the gingiva on teeth. This is usually easy for a hygienist to remove.
Systemic disorders also can cause tooth discoloration.

North Hill Dental:Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth clean and is a means
of preventing dental caries, gingivitis, periodontal disease, bad breath, and other dental
disorders. It consists of both professional and personal care. Regular cleanings, usually
done by dentists and dental hygienists, remove tartar (mineralized plaque) that may
develop even with careful brushing and flossing. Professional cleaning includes tooth
scaling, using various instruments or devices to loosen and remove deposits from teeth.

The purpose of cleaning teeth is to remove plaque, which consists mostly of bacteria.
Healthcare professionals recommend regular brushing twice a day (in the morning and in
the evening, or after meals) in order to prevent formation of plaque and tartar. A
toothbrush is able to remove most plaque, excepting areas between teeth. As a result,
flossing is also considered a necessity to maintain oral hygiene.

Tooth destruction from processes other than dental caries is considered a normal
physiologic process but may become severe enough to become a pathologic condition.
Attrition is the loss of tooth structure by mechanical forces from opposing teeth. Attrition
initially affects the enamel and, if unchecked, may proceed to the underlying dentin.

Dentistry, which is a part of stomatology, is the branch of medicine that is involved in the
evaluation, diagnosis, prevention, and surgical or non-surgical treatment of diseases,
disorders and conditions of the oral cavity, maxillofacial area and the adjacent and
associated structures and their impact on the human body. Dentistry is widely considered
necessary for complete overall health. Those who practice dentistry are known as
dentists. The dentist's supporting team aides in providing oral health services, which
includes dental assistants, dental hygienists, dental technicians, and dental therapists.

Erosion is the loss of tooth structure due to chemical dissolution by acids not of bacterial
origin. Signs of tooth destruction from erosion is a common characteristic in the mouths
of people with bulimia since vomiting results in exposure of the teeth to gastric acids.
Another important source of erosive acids are from frequent sucking of lemon juice.
