Question: Is it normal to have black triangles?

Black triangles are naturally occurring spaces between teeth due to two triangular shaped teeth touching each other. This is completely normal and some type of spacing is always natural and even beneficial, as it helps improve cleansability and gum health, and overall dental hygiene.

What causes a black triangle?

Bone loss. Gum disease, osteoporosis, and other conditions can cause a loss of bone near the base of a tooth. When bone is lost, the gum tissue in that area may also recede. This leads to the formation of black triangles.
