Sprue That Is Like White Patches On The Tongue?
Hello, I’m Aldi. Already 2 days I experienced thrush on the tongue that is quite disturbing my activities both in talking or swallowing food. On this second day, the condition has improved. I have started to resist swallowing food, but it is still difficult to communicate. Strangely, when I look in the mirror the sprue is white and like there are white patches like teeth and it is on the lower left tongue. I’m afraid the gums plus “wisdom teeth” appear on my tongue abnormally. Is this possible? And if the white spots on the thrush on my tongue are not “teeth “, what do you think they are? Please help with the information. Thank you.
Hello Aldi, thank you for asking.
Thrush is a form of injury to the tissue of the tongue, gums, cheeks, palate, or throat. Wounds are formed due to damage to the uppermost mucous layer. When thrush occurs, inflammation is bound to occur. It causes redness, swelling, and pain. In addition, the surface of thrush often forms granulation tissue. The tissue is whitish in color. Generally granulation tissue consists of a collection of inflammatory cells, the causative microorganisms, and tissue fluid.
Answering your question, the white patches are not teeth. It is not possible for teeth to grow on the tongue or other locations. The tooth can only be in the tooth socket, although sometimes the position is not upright so that it disturbs the surrounding teeth.
Because of canker sores are very diverse, for example:
Poor oral hygiene.
Smoking and alcohol abuse.
Bacterial, viral, or fungal infections.
Lack of certain vitamins or minerals.
Take certain medications.
You can try to reduce symptoms by drinking lots of white water, increasing consumption of vegetables and fruit, avoiding cigarettes and alcohol, and brushing your teeth properly 2 times a day. If canker sores do not heal within 1-2 weeks or it gets worse, contact your doctor.
Hopefully this information can help. Regards.
