In brief: Thrush
If there is pain as well, tis could be oral thrush, a fungal infection.
Treatment involves rinses with an anti fin gal in most cases. If there is no pain, there are a number of considerations from vitamin deficiencies to acid reflux. Only a physical exam and complete history could provide an accurate diagnosis.
