    I was brushing my teeth on Tuesday, and two small things that felt like little pebbles came out of my mouth. I wasn't able to save them, but from what I saw they were very small and a little discolored.

    I'm wondering if it was just tartar or maybe a piece of my tooth came out. I can feel a small gap/hole on the bottom left of by back front tooth with my gum, but it doesn't hurt, and there has been no bleeding at all.

    I'm in no pain, able to chew, and drink hot and cold beverages ok. Feeling the gap/hole in my back tooth is what scares me. Thanks!

    Probably tartar (calculus). A common concern.
