Hi all,
I have a problem with a chipped tooth. Earlier today I flossed my front teeth as I felt something in between my bottom front two teeth. as I flossed my front two teeth the bottom corner of my tooth has chipped off by the gum at the back and I can also feel the gap with my tounge. As the tooth chipped away it was a brown colour. This has concerned me so any advice will be greatly appreciated!
thanks

Good day

I would go and see your dentist. Although the quality of the photo is poor, it is possible that you are mistaking the piece of the tooth with calculus. This is plaque, that mineralize and becomes hard. It might be necessary for a good scale and polish
