Cheek biting effect inside of mouth?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Cornelia Franz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Scarring: Chronic cheek biting will lead to a callous or scar effect on the cheek. It may feel like a little soft lump and may have a whitish discoloration. It has no permanent dysfunction that I am aware of.
