Swollen Palate
What causes your palate to swell up. This happens just behind my front teeth and is very painful. I do not smoke and eat healthy. Could this be brought on by stress? Many thanks.

Dear *
This can be due to infection in the roots of the teeth or allergies or injury by hard foods or by inflammation or irritation of the mucous membrane in the mouth - rather let a doctor look at your mouth when this happens again to identify the real problem.
