Blood collected under the gum

User Level:

Posted by: Katerine  (5 years ago)
This forum helped me a lot and now I need some advise (professional opinion) for my son, please. Today I notice his top gum was very blue in one place. I asked him if he hit himself or something, he said that he didn't. Then I pressed on that part and it started bleeding and I kind of squeezed it and the gum returned to normal after a little bit blood came out.it was like tiny hole on the bottom of the gum where the blood was coming out when I pressed on it. Now I am really worried what could it be. Unfortunately it's not possible to see a dentist till 5/08. My son is 7 years old and some of his teeth are permanent already. Will appreciate your opinion, thanks.

Sounds like trauma, but it could be an abscess. It is impossible to tell without examining the patient.

Did you see a decayed tooth in that area?

Thanks for the reply. No, it's no tooth there yet. It's just a empty space. My son is 7 .
