Dentist 's  Response
hello and welcome,
do you have the habit of tobacco/pan chewing?then the patch may be related to any precancerous lesions like leukoplakia or oral submucous fibrosis.steroids are the preferred drug in such cases.
if this is not the cause,then it may be aphthous ulcer type.
it can be treated by tab.flanzen and tab.wysalone.
avoid intake of spicy and sour food like mixture etc.
maintain good oral hygiene.
avoid harsh brushing techniques.

by invisible i believe its white colored , right ? this description in itself is incomplete though more commonly these are oral ulcers and heal slowly by themselves
they may be caused by stress or stomach disturbances.
use hexigel over the area and show it to a dentist immediately.

Well when u say its invisible that makes it difficult to say anything as of now.. we shall have to feel the area, see its size shape and its features and then only comment upon that..
Please go and show it to your Local Dentist.
