  • It is not good to have patches in mouth as they can be pre cancerous lesions. Quit smoking and tobacco chewing immediately as in your case it seems to be the cause. Along with quitting these habits, you have to visit the dentist who after clinical exam and if needed getting biopsy done, will decide the treatment according to diagnosis.

  • White patch can be because of some burns if you eat some thing hot which is called as pizza palate or it can be white patch because of some infection. So without knowing the detailed history and clinical examination it difficult to give diagnosis but you should not delay visiting dentist. So visit your dentist asap and get the proper diagnosis made. Treatment depends upon the proper diagnosis. For more info on oral lesions, you can read this article...
