teeth, health, smile, dentist,dentalhealth, oralhealthWhile most white spots in the mouth are harmless, others are serious. For example, a condition known as leukoplakia might require a biopsy in order to check for precancerous cells. Even if you have healthy teeth, this is an important step to take.

– Even white patches that are painless may indicate a different underlying condition.

“Sometimes a doctor may take a small sample of tissue from oral lesions to diagnose…cells associated with leukoplakia.”
