Hello!

While your symptoms are definitely related to Dental in part for sure, have you considered the possibility of also making an appointment with an Ear Nose & Throat Doctor? The white areas could well be due to something we call "thrush" and occurs when your immune system can't maintain its natural defense against the Candida albicans fungus, which is always present in all of our mouths.

However, I feel your Ear, Nose & Throat Doctor may be best tailored to best benefit you - by a visit to such... Does that sound plausible & something which you could perhaps do?

Dr. Rampton

This white marks on side of my jaws not on my my tongue... More like teeth grinning, i got really soar throat and it has also affected my ear... I do has gastrocolic, do you know any treatments for this...

Dentist: Just Dental Truths!, Dentist replied 2 years ago
The sore throat, may be handled best with time, and "perhaps" an antibiotic as well.

The Gastrocolic? No, Ma'am, I am not very familiar with such. Here is some information on it: http://ibs.about.com/od/glossary/g/gastrocolic.htm - I would presume an internal medicine physician would be best to meet with about such.

As for the white marks "inside" your mouth, might you possibly be able to send me a picture & attach it, and with me seeing it, I could better explain or diagnose for you.

Thank you!

Dr. Rampton

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
