Cavity and discolouration of cheek

I have a cavity in my back left tooth. The same tooth also has a little black spot along the edge of the gum. Is this from the cavity? Also,I have a dark bluish discloration in my left cheek, right below the tooth with the cavity. It s been there for 2 weeks, with some minor improvement the last week after using Glyoxide. It s not an Almagan tattoo as I have no fillings in my mouth. Should I be worried?

Hi, it could be a hyperpigmentation of the gums and cheek. Cavities do not lead to discoloration of mucosa. It only causes redness due to inflammation. Please consult a dentist for complete oral examination. The discoloration may be caused by anemia or hormonal changes. Take care!
