One very common condition is a burn from hot food not appreciated when caused during later but felt later. Other inflammatory lesions such as ulcers resolve on their own without treatment. If this is not improving seek physician evaluation. ...Read more

My dentist told me that stopping smoking has caused soreness & redness in the palate of my mouth. Has been there for 1 month plus now is this common?

My dentist told me that stopping smoking has caused soreness & redness in the palate of my mouth. Has been there for 1 month plus now is this common?

Hmmmmmm.: I'm not sure if i personally would agree with that observation. Smoking can and will cause changes to the soft tissues of your mouth, including the palate. I would think that over time, the tissues will revert back to their natural healthy state, unless there has been some irreversible damage. You might want to check with an oral surgeon regarding the health of the tissues of your palate. ...Read more

I'm having a g/a to remove an apical periodontal cyst from inside my mouth my hard palate how will i feel afterwards will I have sore jaw etc?

Peri apical cyst: First of all the cyst is coming from an infected tooth which needs to get addressed as well as the cyst. You will need a root canal and an incision of the abscess i order to eradicate the problem. If is is a plain old mucous retention cyst, you do not need tooth work. The recovery for both procedures is that day off work. U
you should be ok to work the next day. Good luck. ...Read more

I don't know if it's a sore throats but the roof of my mouth is yellow, palate is red and veiny  and my throats is sore and nose runny. Limited space.

Dr. can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges and Tylenol or Motrin may help decrease symptoms. ...Read more

Unfortunately it: will be impossible to diagnose you over the internet since we cannot see your rash or your oral lesion. These findings could easily be related to an autoimmune process or your medications. You need to make an appointment with your health care provider to discuss these new findings. Don't delay. ...Read more

I don't have a sore throat but my palate is sore and there are 2 big red spots just above the uvula. Swallowing isn't difficult but hurts my mouth?

Possibly viral: If the red spots develop into what look like small blisters or ulcers, then these are almost certainly viral in nature. If the red spots are almost pinpoint, deep red and spread, and the back of the throat gets more red, this could suggest strep throat. Either way, if there is no improvement in the next 2-3 days, or if your symptoms worsen, you should be examined by a physician. ...Read more
