The gums near my front bottom teeth look and feel bruised in the past week. This has happened before, but usually go away in a few days. It has been going on this time for almost a week.Cold liquids and hard foods cause more pain, and the area between my chin and my lip is very sensitive. I'm pretty sure I grind my teeth at night, and think this my be the reason. What do you think.

  • if all other gums are healthy and a only front bottom teeth gums are painful the it normally occurs because of the traumatic occlusion. in thislower teeth hits the uppert eeth and the gums they become sore. if it is due to grinding then other gums are also effected. but you can visit the dentist and find out the cause.
