Unhappy Afraid it could be serious.

I seem to have a white patch covering most of my hard palate (the hard part of the roof of my mouth).It seems to stop at the beginning of the soft palate (the softer part at the back of your mouth leading to your throat). Its not pure white, its sort of see-through, like there is some remnants of toothpaste on there. I have read up on leukoplakia but all the information says its develops on the 'soft' tissue. The pictures also vaguely resemble what I have. Im not sure if it has red marks too or if they are gaps showing my gums, these seem to be closer to the front of my mouth.

I currently have a decayed wisdom tooth which has been hurting more lately (an on and off dull pain).

I also occasionally taste blood and im not sure which it could be causing this problem because it doesnt seem to be coming from the decaying tooth!

Has anyone any idea what the problem may be, and if it could be serious.

Im starting to worry...

(also want to add that I have a strange taste in my mouth, and that looking at other pictures of leukoplakia it doesnt share the same shape)

Go and see your dentist - an infected wisdom tooth is extemely dangerous.

Re: Afraid it could be serious.

My dentist knows about the decay problem, the problem is they recently went private so im stuck without one.

However the tooth isnt infected which is why im unsure what is causing this.

Re: Afraid it could be serious.

Did you get any antibiotics to treat your infection? It could be a case of thrush affecting your mouth.Thrush is an oral yeast infection that can be treated with a liquid med. It usually causes a burning sensation.Had one recently. Had only seen it in my grandchildren before and someone who had been on stong medications. Good luck!
