Had Septoplasty and Rhinoplasty and the Roof of my Mouth Hurts

Roof of mouth pain after septoplasty
You describe a relatively common complaint after septoplasty, that is temporary. One of the nerves that serves the roof of the mouth travels through the lower portion of the septum, so patients can often get temporary disruption of this nerve with work lone on the lower septum. Pain, numbness, dental pain, or dull throbbing are all part of the spectrum. It usually goes away quickly, as in the first couple of weeks, but will continue to improve well past the surgery as it eventually gets to normal. Nothing else you can do but wait.
Roof of Mouth Pain after Septorhinoplasty
I assume you had the septorhinoplasty recently. Abnormal sensations in the roof of the mouth may temporarily occur after surgery. Be patient and share this with your surgeon.
Roof of Mouth Pain After Rhinoplasty
Either the pain is from tubing or gauze packing that is placed into the mouth by anesthesiologists when using LMA tubes, or by chiseling off some of your inferior septum during your septoplasty, the nerve was affected. Usually when the nerve is affected it is manifested by numbness or achiness in the front upper teeth. The pain usually resolves in a short amount of time. Good luck and be well.

Yes this can be a complaint found after this surgery. You probably had some work done on the septum, especially at the base which is why you have this feeling.
This will go away in time, I would not be overly concerned. I would recommend you do discuss this with your surgeon.
