Most people know what a yeast infection is and how irritating it can be, but not everyone knows that people can develop a similar infection in the mouth. This condition is called oral thrush.
What to Look For
Oral thrush primarily affects those with a compromised immune system or those who regularly use inhaled steroids to treat asthma. Symptoms include white lesions with a cottage cheese appearance in the mouth, difficulty swallowing, or a woolly feeling in the mouth and throat. It is every bit as irritating as it sounds. Fortunately, your Monument, CO dentist can help you get the treatment you need if you believe you have it.
