My dentist told me today that I have a spot on the roof of my mouth that has fatty tissue and is not pink like the rest of the roof of my mouth. If I burned the roof of my mouth could this be the reason and if so how long before the color would return?
Do not worry, it might be some minor salivary gland. I do not think that this is because of the burns you sustained. If it is not causing you any pain please wait and watch. Any increase in size get it biopsied.
