I"m not going to speculate, and neither should you. If you wish further information, you should arrange for an in-person consult.
Good luck!

Were these 3 photos taken at the same time? The rightmost image looks less red than the others, and less pronounced than your previous post. But of course, just looking at these images can be deceptive. If you do not see progressive healing, you should follow the advice my brother gave you 2 weeks ago:
"You should ask your dentist for a referral to either an oral medicine or oral surgical specialist for further evaluation."

Good luck!

Is this stomatitis nicotina?

My dentist does not seemed concerned and say its most likely this and told me to cut down smoking. I am not sure what to do now as docs and dentists dont seem bothered.
