In brief: Mouth pain

If no signs of infection , ulcer, fungal infection, consider if eating hard potato chips or doritos could have scrapped the roof of your mouth.

In brief: A few possibilities:

Pain is a non-specific symptom that can reflect a wide variety of things-- anything from physical injury, to an infected tooth, to a viral mucous membrane infection.
Rather than guess, your best next step would be to arrange for a formal diagnostic session with your dentist so that the cause can be determined; after that, it will be possible to devise an appropriate remedial course of treatment.
