Other hot foods and liquids also can burn the roof (palate) of your mouth. These types of burns have come to be called "pizza palate" because they are most commonly caused by pizza.
These burns usually are minor and heal within a few days.
Your dentist will notice that the roof of your mouth is reddened and possibly blistered. Whitish areas may appear as it heals.
Warm salt water rinses after meals will help keep the area clean. To make the rinse, dissolve 1/8 teaspoon of salt in 8 ounces of water. Over-the-counter topical anesthetics may relieve pain from eating in severe cases.
