Your daughter is 7years old, in this age her permanent teeth are coming out in mouth. Teething or tooth eruption is reason for black gums which is normal in this age. Nutritional deficiency or Poor oral hygiene are other possible reasons for black gums. It can be hereditary also in some cases. Visit a dentist for oral check up to rule out any other reason and keep good oral hygiene and nutritional diet for her.
