It isn't harmful to the child or his teeth. It just needs to be cleaned off, by a professional probably. Then you should take extra care to brush the child's teeth a little longer each time you brush them and brush them at least twice a day. Don't brush harder or use a hard bristle brush. Use a soft bristle brush and brush longer. The child should eventually get rid of the bacteria in his mouth that is causing the staining. Try changing a few things in his diet; less sugar, less caffeine, stuff like that. If you talk with his dentist, they will have better suggestions for you also.

What caused black line stain of teeth?

Black-line stain has a very different origin and requires an alternate method of removal. This stain is calculus-like and forms along the gingival third of the tooth near the gingival margin. Black line stain is seen in patients of all ages, yet is more common in women and in patients with good oral hygiene. There appears to be a natural tendency to forming black line stain as it often reforms despite regular self-care. The quantity of black line stain may be less when plaque biofilm is eticulously removed.3 Black line stain is firmly attached to the teeth and often requires moderate scaling to be removed. from:
