Dark red area in gums?

I went to the dentist Wednesday and everything was fine

Right now I noticed my gums are hurting. I looked in the mirror and the bottom part of my gums near the lower lip is dark red. It doesn't bleed or anything. I have braces so its very hard to floss. Is there anything I can do or will it just go away in time?

  • Sounds like a bruise, if it still there in a week, contact your doctor.

  • It's probably sore from when you went to the dentist, because that area was inflamed, plaque and food build up, which can cause gingivitis, I've had braces and I know exactly what you mean, it's damn near impossible to floss. Get yourself a water pick, those work very well. Just give it a day or so, and the guns should go down.
