Hello, I am a 23-year old male I have a painful bump/flap at the roof of my mouth between the back of central incisor teeth, it really hurts when I close my mouth or when I chew because the bottom teeth touch it. I can use my tongue to move the bump/flap back and forth. I had this problem late last year but it seemed to heal on its own but now its back. It really hurts especially when I wake up from sleep.

Please help

Without images, I'm guessing you have a swollen incisive papilla with nerve and blood vessel bundles underneath. If it doesn't go away or keeps recurring, have it check for possible cyst/tumor or other problems.

For temporary relief, I highly recommend Colgate Orabase because the ointment sticks to its target as oppose to washing away like others. It is Over-the-Counter but hard to find.
