Over the past 2 months I started using an electronic toothbrush. I floss and brush morning and evening. Just the other day I noticed black lines around the base of some of my molars. Is there something wrong with the way I am brushing my teeth? I am very careful with my dental hygene and can't understand why the black has suddenly appeared. Are my gums receding exposing these lines? How can I fix this please.
