More that one year ago, some white spots appeared on my upper gums.
The dentist I had, cut tem. About 3 months later, appeared again. Then, he did the same.
I changed a dentist. The new dentist sent me to a Gums Specialist. The gums were cleaned.
This specialist sent me to a Hospital to see another specialist. In the second visit they made a
bioxis and 2 weeks later, I was told that it wasn't so serios. They recomended me to use a cream,
twice a day. After six months I still have the white spots and they are spreading.
I am really worried about this.
Please, give an advise and help at the same time.
Well, its good that its not serious. But what was the diagnosis of the white spots? The biopsy would be a good definitive test to find out what's going on. I'm assuming that this cream they gave you is a steroid of some sort.
I have a similar problem, the 'white' appears on the lower part of my gums where they 'meet' the teeth. I also have them on the back of my tongue and 'sores'(don't know how else to describe them) on the back of my throat. They are like rough spots and hurt sometimes.
Everytime I brush my teeth my mouth bleeds and there is like a 'slime' with the blood.
I went to the ER a few weeks ago because my mouth would not stop bleeding.
Both my dentist and my physician don't think anything is wrong, except that I might be brushing too hard.
Sorry. Sometimes the questions/comments under the original topics get buried underneath. When I answer questions, it generally just floats me to the newest topic posted.
Have your dentist tried prescribing an antifungal in case its thrush (oral candidiasis)? If its a white patch and it rubs off easily and looks a little irritated/red or bloody underneath, that's a good indication that its most likely a fungal problem and an antifungal needs to be prescribed. But more importantly, the underlying cause of the fungal problem needs to be addressed as well.
