Many: Trauma from food is a major cause. Ever eat hard french bread and feel sore? The other causes could be a cold sore, aphthous ulcer, or an infection. Its best to take a look. Id recommend seeing your doctor for more answers.

Tincture of time.: Small cuts in the mouth heal pretty fast. Avoid irritating foods and drink. Rinse with a little salt water 4 times a day. Keep brushing and flossing. If increased pain, fever, won't even start to heal at all after 3 days, severe swelling,or cut is very large, go to ER. Tetanus immunization up to date? If not, get one within 72 hours. What happened anyway? When?
