Oral thrush is a type of fungal infection that occurs in the mouth. If left untreated, it can spread to the gums and cause secondary infections that may harm your teeth.
Oral thrush normally occurs in people with weak immune system or dentures.
Symptoms include white lesions, sore throat, an unpleasant taste in the mouth and difficulty swallowing.
Oral thrush can be treated with prescribed antifungal medications or over-the-counter drugs.
Visit your dentist if you see any signs and symptoms of oral thrush.
