Answer: Pain on Palate

Luckily the mouth heals very quickly. Warm salt water rinses will help keep the area clean as well as soothe the tissues. Avoid any hard and crunchy foods as they may irritate the newly formed tissue. Acidic foods may also irritate and cause discomfort so avoiding citrus, pasta sauces, sour candies, etc. will benefit you greatly. Any over the counter anti-inflammatory such as Motrin will help with the discomfort until the tissue has repaired itself completely.
