teeth that would lead to this problem. It may be possible to reshape some
of the teeth that are causing you to bite your cheek. We would try to have
the cheek deflect off of the teeth, instead of getting caught between
them. Good luck with your treatment.

It is difficult to say exactly why you are biting your cheek without a thorough clinical examination. The 2 most likely reasons are 1) a bruxism habit (grinding/clenching), which is notorious for causing linea alba (white line) inside the cheeks or 2) a supererupted upper molar (usually a wilson tooth). There are other possible etiologies as well. In any case, the final diagnosis should only be made chairside. I hope this helps.

A very common cause of situation of what you are describing shall be teeth shifting or whether the teeth in the back have been moved orthodontically or due to relapse such that you started to develop such situation.
Usually some tooth adjustments and bite or occlusal adjustments shall help from your dentist. It may not be complete resoution unless the teeth are moved back to appropriate position. Try to talk tp your orthodontist and he or she may be able to help with the situation.
Hope this helps.

It is possible that your teeth have shifted. And sometimes when you bite your cheek it's easy to bite it again and again. An evaluation of your bite by a dentist will help determine what's going on!
