  • How's your oral hygene? It sounds like the blood flow to those places is compromised, maybe from gum disease? If you have good oral hygene, though, then it's probably nothing.

  • that's called cyanosis
    there are over 439 different causes for it, ranging from brushing your teeth too hard and damaging your gums to heart failure.
    Any other symptoms besides the gums?
    If it's just the gums, brush your teeth regularly but gently around the gums.
