Hello doctor,

I am having a hard yellow thing accumulated in lower four teeth near gums. I do not know what it is? It just happened a few days ago.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The hard yellow deposit is calculus (mineral deposits) on lower teeth which are receding your gum (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It can be apical periodontitis and/or apical periodontitis with abfraction. Please share a good picture just focusing on lower teeth. As per treatment, if you have calculus then get ultrasonic scaling done.


The Probable causes:

Oral hygiene.

Differential diagnosis:

Abfraction.

Probable diagnosis:

Apical periodontitis.

Preventive measures:

Maintain your oral hygiene and get ultrasonic scaling done every six months.
