Thrush is a fungal infection that can occur in your mouth when the yeast "Candida Albicans" grows unchecked. The Mayo Clinic describes oral thrush symptoms as sore, white spots on the tongue or other places in your mouth. Thrush is more common among young or elderly patients or those with weakened immune systems. It can also be caused by dry mouth, wearing dentures, or a bacterial imbalance following oral antibiotics.
These oral health issues may worry you. If you notice any of these uncommon oral health symptoms, visit the dentist as soon as possible. All of these issues can be treated with medication, surgery, or lifestyle changes.
