What causes white spots on gums?

The symptoms may be due to minor ulcers (canker sores) or more severe health issues.

Key takeaways:

– If the spots are uncomfortable or painful, see your dentist promptly.

– Early diagnosis is highly advisable, to treat the condition and minimise complications.

– A small tissue sample might be necessary to check for oral lichen planus or to diagnose pre-cancerous or cancerous cells associated with leukoplakia.

“White spots or other sores in the mouth that do not heal within two weeks should receive timely attention from your dentist.”
