Weird spot on gums

Hi,
Can anyone help me out with why my gums look like this on one tooth only? I brush and floss and use mouthwash daily and have always had great dental health. I recently noticed this weird area. The rest of my gums look fine and healthy. I do believe this tooth is a baby tooth as I have one that did not have a permanent tooth grow in. Not sure if that’s related. Thank you.

Good day

Over-retained baby teeth don't always last forever. It looks like your baby tooth might be reaching the end of its lifespan. I would suggest only using a soft tooth brush in this area, but start planning for a replacement tooth. You can consult your dentist to explain all the available options to you.
