See your dentist: You either have a traumatized papilla which will heal over time, or you may have tartar or something irritating that area. Either way, I would recommend you contact a dentist and have your mouth examined and possibly teeth cleaned.

Contact ur dentist: This really needs to be visualized... it can be anything from an accidental cut to a cold sore.. depending on your bite, your lower teeth can even be hitting that area. So hard to determine what ails you, sight unseen.

Incisive papilla : There are a few reasons pain in the incisive papilla. The periodontal pocket around the frontal teeth, tooth abscess, a cystic lesion or burning lesion from the hot food. You definitely need to see a dentist for examination and x-rays if pain will continue for 3 more days..

Incisive Papilla: The incisive papillae if only sore from irritation such as hard or hot foods can take longer to heal than three days although it should start to feel better soon and will heal on it's own. If it dies not get better soon see a dentist to see what's causing the pain.
