  • The bruisng on the gums that is the redness can be because of many reasons. it  can be because of some gum infection which is normally generalized  or it can be beacouse of the some trauma like during brushing some times the gum injury is there and it is normally localized. it can be because of some ulceration like canker sore which is initially like abruise but it is self limiting and takes around 7 to 10 days to heal. You can wait for day or two and see. If the bruise in the gum increases in size and becomes painful then you can visit a dentist because without clinical examination, it is difficult to make diagnosis. Till then you should be careful by not irritating the bruise further and do warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day.
