Fungus?: It's impossible to make a diagnosis based just on one sign. However, the majority of common white lesions of the tongue are fungal. It's usually "candidiasis, " or what you might call "thrush." that's not something that easily goes away by itself. You should see a dentist & get some medication. More importantly, your dentist needs to rule out other problems which are potentially dangerous. Get help. Read more

Call your dentist.: You should visit your dentist's office and let them take a look. The tooth may need care immediately, in the future or not at all. It may turn color, and the developing permanent teeth are also at risk from this type of injury. Right now is the time for initial assessment, & an x-ray. Often nothing needs to be done immediately (especially if your child is improving and out of pain). Read more
