Several wks ago I put a new brush head on my electric brush

Several wks ago I put a new brush head on my electric brush and had a bad cut into my palate while being careless. The next morning while eating breakfast I burned it w coffee and some hot sauce on my eggs. I took a look and saw a deep very red and raw depression. I went to the dentist and he said just a bad traumatic ulcer and stop back in a few wks to reexamine and if not healing he would send me to an oral surgeon or ENT for evaluation. I made an appt on my own w an ENT and he also said not cancer and wouldn't biopsy it. It's still fairly deep but now much closer to the color or the rest of the palate and pink. My question is how long will it take for this area to fill in? And will it or will there always be a depression there?JA: I'm trying to find the right Dentist for you right now. As soon as they are ready, I will let you know. How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?Customer: There is no pain. Only was painful the first 5 days or so. It's just the look basicallyJA: Anything else in your medical history you think the dentist should know?Customer: No

I have several questions. 1. At the very front of my mouth

I have several questions.1. At the very front of my mouth my top gums looks like they have something on top of them. It looks white in color with a few bumps. I do brush my gums when I brush my teeth. However, this does not want to come off. My gums never hurt and I am not experiencing any discomfort. This is very concerning to me as I try and take good care of my teeth but have truthfully not been able to go to the dentist in a couple of years due to financial reasons. I have attached a couple different pictures. One of which I have circled the area of concern. What is this and is it normal? Anything to be concerned about?2. I have a bright white patch on the soft tissue right underneath my wisdom teeth on the bottom that goes down beside of my tongue on both sides. It doesn't hurt at all. I just noticed it. I have attached pictures. Is this normal? I circled the area of concern. I'm just concerned with cancer in this area.3. My hard palate looks a little white. Is this anything to be concerned about? I have attached a picture.4. The gum color under my bottom teeth is darker than the top. Is that okay? I have circled the area that I'm talking about.Lastly, if wisdom teeth are not giving a person any trouble do dentist still recommend that they be taken out?I have a dentist appointment coming up but not for a few weeks. However, in the meantime this is concerning. Any assistance you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated.
