Hi doctors.

I realised very serious teeth marks on the side of my tongue and there are significant whites on the side on my tongue (Not tongue fur) its at the brime of the side of my tongue.

I consulted a GP for this issue and he suggest that it is due my lower jaw being more narrow causing my tongue to have teeth mark and whites on the brime of the sides. He suggest that I should probably visit a dentist to have an x ray done and mentioned that in years to come, if infected, will increase chances of cancerous growth. I’m worried about the whites on the brime of my tongue. Not sure if I should visit a dentist or a doctor to get it checked?
