In brief: Depends
It depends on the cause/how far back in the throat/general health/smoking habits/oral habits if the cause was mechanical, then it should heal on its own in a few days.
..Gargling with a mild salt water may help. There are many systemic diseases that can cause/result in an ulcerations in the mouth/throat...See your doc immediately if it doesn't resolve in a few days.
