    I'm getting ready to get an implant in the near future and a couple of days ago I had bone grafting done in one of the front teeth on the side and today I noticed my inner lip being way darker than the normal pink. Is this normal will it go away? I'm scared its something dangerous but then again maybe its normal after bone grafting? It's like dark red almost black color and it's only in the center of the inner lip on the top lip and it goes all the way to my gum area. Does anyone know what this is? Maybe it's stained blood but I don't think blood can stain that area

    Go in to your dentist, explain concerns, if he has any immediate thoughts they will photo document and compare over time. If No improvement presents then it will be biopsied. Nothing to be concerned with off the cuff.
