Possible: What is cause? Congenital,?cleft palate? Trauma? Infection? May well be reparable by ENT or Plastic

See an oral surgeon: You may want to consult with an oral surgeon, depending on the cause, the nature and the size of the hole and available tissue ( soft and hard) in your palate, some kind of grafting may be possible. Best of luck.

Surgeon: You will probably have to consult with more than one professional- oral surgeon, prosthodontist , possibly a plastic surgeon. You will probably be faced with different options and different opinions, but all should work together.
Dr. John Thaler
Prosthodontics 41 years experience
Possibly: See your Oral Surgeon and get assessment and possible referral to other Dr.'s who treat this as a team. Your Maxillofacial Prosthodontist is an excellent resource for options. Much depends upon the location and size of the opening and the surrounding bone and tissue size, shape and condition. Today, there are many options to consider. Good Luck.

Brush, rinse, floss: Brush and keep them clean, floss them gently and try rinsing with warm salt water in that area specifically. Rinse for a minute or so or as long as you can. This should help it go away. If the swelling is not going away you need to see your dentist to have it checked out. Good luck.

Hydroquinone cream: Try hydroquinone cream. Rub in a small amount 2 times each day. You can find a 2% hydroquinone cream over the counter in most pharmacies. Natural liquorice extract is another treatment that works but is usually not as effective.
