Dental Black Triangles

Have you ever noticed some people have a small black triangle located in between some of their teeth, and looks like a speck of pepper? I have, and always wondered what it was!

So, what exactly are dental black triangle?

According to Larry Picard, DDS, dental black triangles are clinically knowen as open gingival embrasures. This is a gap between the teeth that is often due to bone loss, recession of the gum line, and sometimes due to movement in the teeth.

There are a few different ways to fix this problem:
  • Interproximal Reduction (IPR) in conjunction with Invisalign
  • Veneers
  • Bonding
  • BioClear
