    Hi presuming this plaque was near gum line ?

    Use sensitive toothpaste it has medicine in to remove sensitivity there's loads on the market

    however pay more attention to better hygenine as its an odd place to get plaque

    hope this helps

    Thought I was the only one that had this issue. Lol

    Anyways, you'll have to see a dentist regardless. This may require a root canal or filling. Which isn't as bad as it sounds... I suggest making an appointment whenever you can seeing it's not bothering you that bad and get a check up. Everything will be alright! No one likes to go to the dentist, me included, but you gotta take care of your teeth so the world can see that pretty smile. Hope I helped and keep us updated, much love.

      Very rare esp on outside but you can get erosion due to incorrect brushing

      this causes either plaque and gum disease or you are too meticulous and the sensitive part of the tooth shows

      there's always a chance of tooth decay but pretty rare in canine that will require a root filling as there's no flat surface for decay more often via a blow / knock injury affecting root viability

      for now try toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth
