Weird thing in mouth

12/12/2006

Question:

i HAVE A WEIRED THING GOING ON IN MY MOUTH ,MY GUMS SEEM TO BE GETTING DARKISH GREY AND NOT EVRYWHERE?

Answer:

There may be several reasons for this change.

Are you taking any medications? It may be a side effect, especially if it is affecting saliva flow.

You wrote "not everywhere," but where is it? Close to your teeth? Close to your cheek, lip? When did you notice it? Is it painful?

I need more information to give a possible answer.

For more information:
