Brief Answer:

Oral Lesions.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Dark spots on the roof of the mouth can be due to mucositis or mucosal change due to some medicine or tobacco etc.

It would be better if you can send me the picture of the lesions so that I can suggest you better and advise accordingly.

You can simply upload/attach it to the reports section of this web page.

Is there any history of smoking or tobacco use?

Any history of dentures use?

Please follow up with the required information.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
