Hello. Thank you for posting.

A person might notice a white spot on or under the tongue after experiencing discomfort or when checking inside your mouth after brushing. Most of these spots or patches go away by themselves, but it's worth visiting a dentist to have them checked out if they linger. Oral thrush, canker sores, and leukoplakia (white patches) are the most common causes of white spots on the tongue.
