Palate : This area in your palate will heal quickly. Avoid hot, spicy and acidic foods the will irritate the area. Hard crunchy food like chips can irritate the area. OTC pain relievers if needed.

Scrapes: You can take OTC pain medication such as Advil, Motrin, Aleve (naproxen) or what you would normally take for a headache. Topical anesthetics such as Orajel can also help. Avoid spicy, acidic foods and see your dentist if the pain does not resolve quickly.

Scrape in hard: palate . Usually such wounds look much worse than they are in reality. Rinse your mouth with worm salt water 3 X per day. OTC pain relievers such as Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Advil will help to control discomfort. Keep a good oral hygiene. It will take about 2 weeks to heal. Do not hesitate to see your dentist if the wound does not seem to be healing well or it takes more than 2 weeks. Good luck.
