      Hi ... I've had a look at the photo and I'm not concerned by it - it does not look like tooth decay. A bruise/small burst blood vessel looks the most obvious and this is nothing to worry about. If your dentist is concerned by the photo they will ask to see your daughter; but it looks like nothing to be concerned by.

      Thank you David. Our dentist reported back with the same advice. He said if it's still there after a month, it should probably get looked at.
      I really appreciate everyone's input. Thanks again!!

      It's been a year since you posted, but I'd love to hear what you found out, as my babe has a similar mark. We have an appt next week, but I'd love to hear from you if possible. Thank you!

      Whoops, I see posts that clarify what you found out. Somehow I missed them before. Thanks!

      Bayley I hope your appointment goes well with your child for you both. I would be interested how you get on and the outcome if you would be so kind.
