    Stop worrying. The white patches do sound like your teeth are coming through. Speckles on your tongue are harmless. White coating- well this often happens throughout the day. Do you brush your teeth twice a day?

    If it is sore then it could be oral thrush

      I don't know the scientific reason, maybe to do with blood flow? I just know that when my brother or I had teeth coming through the skin went white. Wisdom teeth can lurk for years, and go long periods of time without doing anything, so you might not see any teeth for a few years
