In brief: Pink and stippled
The simple answer is coral pink in color and stippled with texture, indicating no inflammation or fluid retention.
Healthy gums are extremely important to systemic blood vessel lining health. The bacteria can induce healthy gums to change quickly if left in place for more than a day and supplied with food. The saliva and your immune system will fail to keep them in check. Open wounds result.
