Treatment for White Patches in the Mouth

White patches are usually painless, although discomfort can occur.


What causes white patches in the mouth?

  • White patches may develop within the oral mucosa due to trauma, infection, immune-related disease or neoplasia.
  • White patches may be localized or widespread throughout the mouth.
  • Some white patches are precancerous or cancerous

How can white patches be treated?

Oral Medicine and Pathology uses advanced diagnostic techniques to identify the underlying tissue changes that cause white patches and manage accordingly.

Microbiological investigations might be performed in some cases to reach the correct diagnosis and management of the condition.

A biopsy might be indicated to rule out underlying dysplastic changes in certain conditions.
