The condition of your teeth, gums, tongue, lips and cheek-lining can tell more about your health and even help in early detection of chronic diseases. Here are some dangerous oral symptoms to look out for.

Main points:

– Recurring cavities could be a sign of diabetes.

– White spots and lines on the tongue are warning signs for overgrown candidiasis or oral cancer.

– Bleeding during brushing is a major sign of acute gingivitis.

Also look out for ‘wearing out’ and discolouration as they indicate GERD. Visit the dentist for further tests.
