Hey everyone, I have been noticing white stuff ( like cheese?) on my gums even after I brush. Its like my gums have pores...( are gums supposed to have pores?)Any opinion on it, and has anyone experienced this? Also for the past few weeks my upper gums sometimes feel dry spontaneously-it goes away after I eat or like my upper teeth.

Thanks for reading. My dentist says my teeth looks fine but Idk..Please leave your opinion if you can.

Maybe your mouth is drier for some reason or you are a little dehydrated. Dry mouth is a side effect of some medications and dietary supplements. If you use any check the side effects. If you don't have other signs of dehydration, try one of the OTC "dry mouth" symptom relievers and see it that helps.

Look up oral thrush, oral lichen planus, and oral leukoplakia, see if any of them match your symptoms.

It's not related to a root canal.

After reading your reply i looked them up, none of the images and symptoms match my concern. To be honest mine doesnt look so bad, just tiny white pimple like spots now and then. Thanks though. I will ask my dentist one more tume. Then get a second opinion from another if he brushes my concern off.

It's not related to a root canal.
You can get thrush/candida after taking antibiotics. If the OP had a root canal after an abscess/infection, they could be related. However, you can also get thrush from taking steroids, antibiotics for other conditions, medications that cause dry mouth, and a variety of other conditions that might cause yeast overgrowth in the mouth. Even though the OP doesn’t think it sounds like candida, it does sound like the most likely answer.
