My 5 year old son has dirty blackish colored marks along his top and bottom gums. I just recently noticed it. I'm not sure how long he has had it. When i looked at them carefully yesterday, they look like stains. But I'm unable to brush them off. They only run along the top of the teeth (on the upper gum line) and along the bottom of the teeth (on the lower gum line). Not the entire top and bottom gums.
Does anyone know what's the cause of this or has seen or heard of anything like this before? He said it doesn't hurt and none of his baby teeth has fallen off yet, but i'm afraid it might be gum disease or something. Will be taking him to a dentist soon. Just want to search for some quick answers. Thanks.
