Oral thrush is caused by fungi living inside of your mouth

Your mouth is filled with bacteria, fungi, and viruses - collectively called the oral microbiome! Some of these microbes are beneficial, while others cause damage. Maintaining the right balance of good and bad microbes is essential to oral health.

Oral thrush — also known as oral candidiasis (kan-dih-DIE-uh-sis) — is a condition in which certain species of fungi from the Candida genus accumulate on the lining of your mouth. Candida is a normal organism in your mouth, but if there is an overabundance it can lead to unpleasant symptoms including white lesions on your tongue and cheeks, redness or burning sensations, and loss of taste.
