hi and welcome,

White spots seen on the roof of the mouth are may be due to ulcerations , it can be stress related ulcer , apthous ulcer , ulceration caused due to trauma either physical trauma or chemical trauma caused due to allergy to certain filling material or food stuffs .

such ulceration or lesions take about 10 to 15 days to subside provided they are not infected.

i suggest you to maintain good oral hygiene to prevent ant super infection by regular mouth rinsing with antiseptic mouthwash.

start with a multivitamin course and vitamin C lozenges two times daily for 7 to 10 days which helps in repairing the tissue.

Apply antiseptic oral ointment like dentogel topically over the lesion 2 to 3 times a day.

i hope this helps,

take care.

Thanks for sharing your concern with us
Although the cause of most mouth ulcers is unknown, accidental damage is a common reason. For example, biting the tongue or cheek lining by mistake, eating foods that are too hot, a sharp broken tooth, or wearing badly-fitting dentures can all produce a mouth ulcer.
Avoid spicy, salty or sour foods until the ulcer has healed.
Dissolve a tablet of soluble (dispersible) paracetamol in water, and swirl it round your mouth before swallowing it.
Before eating, rinse your mouth with iced water. This may dull the pain, so that eating is more comfortable.
vitamin B12 tablets taken under the tongue (sublingually) may help, even in people whose blood level of vitamin B12 is normal.
