Fix your occlusion: Occlusion, or the way your upper teeth occluded against the lower teeth, could be compromised (cross bite, interference, end to end) and cause lip biting during function. Go to your dentist and check your occlusion. Mucocele, a small bump due to salivary deposit into soft tissue after a minor salivary gland/duct rupture following trauma such as lip biting, can further introduce more lip biting. ...Read more
Incisive Papilla: It's where the blood vessels and sensory nerves to your plate exit the bone and speed out.

Has anyone ever suggested that you see an orthodontic specialist? If not, let me be the first. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can biting your lip turn into luekoplakia I bite lip constantly but I have white patch on lip where I bite my lip but I haven't bite lip in 2 weeks ?
Scar tissue: Likely hyperparakeratosis, or basically dead skin cells from the trauma of lip biting. This can turn into scar tissue if prolonged biting occurs. We do not really consider this "white patch" or leukoplakia in this region with this history. Have teeth checked for sharp edges - may be smoothed. Of course, do your best not to chew this area. If it remains, see the Oral Surgeon for treatment options. ...Read more

I have been biting my cheeks when eating, and i donottalk when eating and im not nervous , what can be the other reasons for this?
Vicious cycle: Cheek biting is usually the result of a nervous habit. Once you bite your cheeks, they become inflamed and makes it more likely for you to bite them again as they are now closer to your teeth. Try to be conscious of your cheek biting and eat slowly. With some effort, it should resolve on its own. See your dentist for an evaluation and make an effort to reduce your stress. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
