Roof of mouth burning sensation



Former Member
Burnt the roof of my mouth with pizza like 3 days ago
I’m a ex smoker I quit since Jan 2019
Smoked for 5 years

Been smoke free over two months now

I’m just scared that it might be something else, no bleeding from the spot . Just a little sensitive when I touch it with my tongue, been using hello charcoal toothpaste and whitening mouthwash, just typing this is giving me anxiety, my jaw feels fine , it’s just that area with the arrow , how long for mouth burns to go away ...does it look like a mouth burn??

I believe it can take up to 2 weeks to heal, but often, for me, it’s around a week to heal.
