I had deep planing for peridontal problems and had arestin

Customer Question

I had deep planing for peridontal problems and had arestin put in about four weeks ago. 3 days later I got tongue fissures with white growths deep inside fissures. Not food, can't get them out with tweezers, they are attached growrths. Docs didn't know what it was and prescribed Nystatin mouthwash. Hasn't helped. Tongue is really sore and sensitive. I have scoured the internet and can't find anything like it. Any ideas?
