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

Stop playing!: You likely have a facial cellulitis from spreading the initial follicular infection by attempting to "pop" your pimple. Seek immediate attention from your pcp or urgent care source to be placed on antibiotics today! follow up in 7-10 days is a must to avoid more serious complications. There is always a potential need for an incision ; drainage procedure, which requires a face to face encounter! ...Read more

Keep biting my cheek after having my teeth pulled?

It is common: I assume you now have dentures. Things are now very different in your mouth than they were with real teeth. Biting your cheek and/or your tongue are very common. You will learn not to do it naturally. ...Read more

Reduce inflammation: You just had extractions, and everything is swollen, so you bite your cheek, and that causes it to swell... It's a never-ending circle. Reduce inflammation 1) take fluid mediating analgesic such as Aspirin or advil/motrin/ibuprofen and 2) rinse w 1 tsp salt in 8oz warm water. Do both 4x/day to help reduce inflammation. ...Read more

Yes: See, you will have to see a dentist in order to determine the cause of your problems and get the appropriate treatment. There just may be insufficient room for that wisdom tooth and it may need to be removed. Better to have it looked at before it becomes infected. ...Read more
