I just noticed black spots along the front of My lower gum line, as well as some erosion. I've been dipping for close to 20 years now. Tooth loss?

In brief: Get it checked out

Given your prolonged history of dipping and new onset lesions along the gum line, it would be important to have your mouth examined by a physician in order to determine if further workup and/or biopsy is required.
