In periodontal (gum) disease bacteria begins to migrate along the root surfaces under the gum causing damage to the gum and bone. As the gum tissue reacts to the bacteria the gum swells. Over time the gum tissue becomes cyanotic (is deprived of oxygen) and becomes darker. It is also possible that the dark bacteria that has moved along the root surface is showing through the gum tissue. Either way, you should seek care with your dentist or periodontist as soon as possible.
