broken tooth causing purple spot in mouth

Zev Kaufman, DDS responded:
Dear An_247350:

Yes, it is normal. What you are describing is a blood blister in the cheek caused by the sharp edges of the tooth. It is normal, yet undesirable. You must go and see your dentist and have the tooth treated. Either extracted, or restored.

Best of luck,
Dr. Zev Kaufman
