Brownish spot?

10/03/2006

Question:

I just noticed a small brown spot on my upper gum, any idea why ?

Answer:

It can be for several reasons. You are not giving me enough information to interpret.

All these things are important. But most importantly, if you notice something new, and if is not going anywhere more than 10 days, you should go visit a dentist, (especially if you are in high risk group like smokers etc).
