Common remedies for burning the roof of the mouth include using a corticosteroid paste, drinking a cool beverage, drinking a beverage such as milk that coats the mouth, or taking pain medication, according to Healthline and Men's Health magazine. Kenalog Orabase is an example of the corticosteroid paste.
Ibuprofen and acetaminophen are both over-the-counter medications that can alleviate the pain when treating a burn on the roof of the mouth, according to Healthline. While the mouth is healing, it is a good idea to stay away from hot foods and crunchy foods. Doctors advise patients to rinse with salt water to help with swelling and pain management. Most burns on the roof of the mouth heal within one to two weeks.
