    Casey, Yes you have to see a dentist asap. You probably have an abscess, which can be dangerous if not treated very quickly. It's not a huge worry if it's seen to in time. Please get yourself to a dentist as soon as you can. I don't know where you are in the world, but if you can't get an emergency appointment with a dentist, the A&E dept of any large hospital will be able to help. (That's the ER if you're in the States, though I don't know whether they offer the same kind of help over there.)

    Please take this seriously.

    Hi casey

    Do you clean your teeth twice a day?

    Do you floss your teeth

    Do you clean your tongue Aswell?

    Do you use a good mouthwash with no sweetners or alcohol ?

    If not it sounds like there is a problem!

    Go to your dentist do not prolong it any longer.

    No tooth should be going black. And it might be extracted. Or they might be able to save it depending on what they see.

    For the sake of your health and heart go don't delay any longer Okay??All the best

    Liz??
