Scared. White patches/whitehead looking in my mouth. Some tiny ones on the inside of cheeks/few larger ones behind where molars wld be on the bone.

White Patch Check: Oral white patches need to be evaluated. There are many causes..The large majority are benign. Occasionally a biopsy is done to determine the cause. Again the large majority biopsied tissues are harmless. Many general dentists do scrape biopsy which is fast and easy for the patient called cdx. But this is less accurate. Others including oral surgeons can do excisional biopsy that removes it whole. ...Read more

Abcesses: It sounds like you may have an abcess. The fact that your tooth is discolored is consistent with this finding. The tooth may be non-vital ("dead"), and the pain and sponginess may be due to the abcess enlarging and the pus attempting to exit from under the tissues that cover the hard palate. Contact your dds as soon as possible and keep the area clean. Warm salt water rinses should help today. ...Read more

With the advent of longer lasting injectable fillers (perlane, juvederm, restylane, (dermal fillers) radiesse, etc...), it is possible to maintain cheek fullness without surgery. It requires repeated treatments to maintain the results. Cheek implants can provide a more permanent increase in volume. ...Read more
