Small red spot on gums, on front lower tooth, no bleeding. Causes?

Hi, I noticed a while ago I had a tiny red dot (size of a pinhead) on my gums right at the base on my front lower tooth . It does not hurt and does not bleed . My gums are in good condition and I get regular check ups. Any idea what it could be? When I looked closer, it almost looks like my gum is red with some broken blood vessel or something. Thanks!

Hello there...its good that you get evaluated periodically.....reasons for the red spot could be many...
to begin with the simplest of all it could be an traumatic ulcer that would have happened because of trauma to the gums while brushing or middling your pen or pencil between your teeth...the next reason could be an inflamed gum...then could also be a sinus that would have resulted from the tooth above...the tooth would have had an injury earlier or would have decayed resulting in the spread of infection apically, resulting in sinus....
