Recently after brushing my teeth I noticed little black dot on one of my wisdom teeth. I tried to clean it with my toothbrush but I couldn't remove it even with intensive brushing on the tooth. I take a good care of my teeth. Besides just a couple of weeks ago I had an appointment at my dentist office and everything was fine. Could be a cavity or simply staining. I don't smoke, drink alcohol, coffee, soda or eat sugary food so both options surprise me.
Black Dot on Wisdom Tooth?

Diagnodent technology might be helpful to measure the tooth density to distinguish between stain and decay. Many dentist have this instrument and I find it helpful.

Probably just a stain in a crevice, since you were just at the dentist it is not something I would worry about

It's probably nothing to worry about. Might just be a crevice in the tooth with stain embedded in it. Have your dentist or hygienist check it at your next visit.
