Dr. Gary Klugman answered:

Keep biting my cheek after having my teeth pulled?

It is common

Cheek
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.

Dr. Dinh Bui answered:

What is stop me from accidently biting my inner cheek and/or lip over and over?

Fix your occlusion

Fingernails
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.

I keep biting my tongue/cheek in my sleep?

Check with dentist

Head-cheek
Tongue, cheek biting indicates problems of occlusion, the way teeth fit together during function such as eating and swallowing. It is the swallowing where teeth of opposing arch occluded against each other and where tongue and cheek biting may occur. Treatment included occlusal adjustment (selective grinding) and/or biteguard (in extreme case)

Body-Focused Repetitive Behavior (BFRB) is not usually considered obsessive-compulsive disorder. Behavioral modification treatment and possibly medication is often helpful.

Dr. Bahman Omrani answered:

Why do my teeth snap together biting very hard down closed and sometimes biting my inner cheek uncontrollably in my sleep?

Malocclusion

Sleep
Malocclusion between the upper and lower teeth is the most likely explanation. This can also be related to TMJ and bruxism which may explain the night time symptoms. Your dentist or oral surgeon can help.

Why do my contact lens keep ripping?

Contact lenses

Contact_lens
There are several possible reasons why your contacts often tear. The first may be how you're handling them when you remove them. Also, if your eyes tend to be dry, it may help to instill a rewetting drop in your eyes before removing the lenses. In addition, there are certain brands of contacts which tend to tear more easily. Try a different brand of lenses. Talk to your eye doctor about this.

What causes you to bite your lip when chewing gum and/or eating?

Malocclusion

Quite possibly some misalignment of the teeth and/or jaws can result in the accidental biting of the lip and cheek.
