If the root is not frail, You could try some toothpaste and an old toothbrush.

Give it a light scrubbing, then rinse.

That might not be too bad to try, very low key abrasion with toothpaste ( not the gel type ).  I have used toothpaste on various items with no ill effects.

Just make sure your tooth ends up minty fresh! :P

 

I guess lesson learned here...fossils and candy bars don't mix.

Was the tooth a fresh find when you put it in your pocket? I ask because the thread below is what came to mind as a possible explanation to the color change, especially since the solutions provided above haven’t been working.

 

Nope, it was bought as a gift for me and it was fine when I got it

If acetone didn't do it, alcohol likely won't come close to touching it

Different solvent will dissolve different things sometimes Doren. 

 

Could try an ultrasonic cleaner?
