A Quick Look at Oral Thrush

Oral thrush is characterised as white spots (sometimes slightly painful) on the surface of your tongue. This condition is caused by the presence of bacteria and while it will not affect the teeth, it does affect your oral health.

Key takeaways:

– Certain medications can cause oral thrush.

– This condition could signal a depressed immune system.

– Concurrent symptoms might include cracks around the corners of your lips.

There are actually many conditions that cause white spots, including cancer, so it’s important to get a correct diagnosis.

See your dentist if you notice white spots on your gums or tongue.
