What causes dry mouth and white patch on tongue?

default
Posted on Mon, 6 Oct 2014
Question: I have a white patch on my tongue that is extremely sore. The taste buds are standing straight up, and separated. Also I have dry mouth. This first started when I had a gum graph and the Dr. removed the tissue from the roof of my mouth to use to replace the tissue that receding. My GP does not know what it is. I don’t think that its thrush, but how do I get rid of it?

I think this is dry mouth. Try Biotene

Detailed Answer:
I think that this is related to a drier mouth and change in bacteria flora. Try Biotene to help oral health and improve moisture. Give it time to work
