when brushing my teeth this morning I found a dime size dark bruise on my lower left jaw bone . These molars were removed years ago, should I be concerned about this?

  • The dark bruise which is there can be haematoma which can be there because of some trauma or the irritation. Normally it subsides with in a week to ten days. But if it does not subsides or start increasing in size then you can visit your dentist. Till then keep good oral hygeine and make sure not to irritate the bruise.
