What are these lines on the back of my teeth?

Posted on By Anna Bazinet In Patient/Consumer Inquiries

Hello, I have these dark lines on the back of this tooth. No pain or anything so I don’t think it’s a cavity but I could be wrong. I recently had my wisdom teeth removed so I’m worried that because I wasn’t able to brush them for 2 ish days that now I have a cavity. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Looks like a cavity but looks can be deceiving keep that in mind. Need to do diagnostic testing and exam.

Could be decay or stain. Should have it checked by a dentist. Radiographs and clinical assessment is key. The white lines on the tooth in front is called a "sealent" prbably one you received when still a young child to prevent this type of decay. Good luck Dr. Salama
