ok just want to let you know its my front bottom tooth and its like a black brown line inbetween

Many times, there is a tendency to have a build up of food or other debris, due to eating, chewing tobacco, smoking, etc. It likely may possibly time to have a cleaning, where they almost always can remove such brownish black stains. If you'd like to send me a picture, I could likely confirm what this stain is.

this is the pic youll see the stain when you zoom on the right

Great picture!

I can see it clearly, thanks. It is tartar & stain. Very commonly seen by your Dental staff, and easily cleaned off. You merely need to see your Dentist/Dental Hygienist, and within an hour of time, they can clean this off for you. Don't worry, this is very, very common!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
