My wisdom tooth on the lower right side of my mouth is coming in. I really don't feel any pain from it except the fact that I keep biting my cheek on that side. I can't eat because I bite down on my cheek!! To chew I have to pull my cheek out. It hurts really bad it is sore now due to the fact of how many times I have bitten it. I can't open and close my mouth at all without biting it. Please can someone help me and tell me y this might be? Is my wisdom tooth infected and causing my cheek to swell? I need help thanks!!!!
omgg i havee the same problem! my wisdom teeth are coming in and i keep biting the left side of my cheek. its like, i cnt eat without biting down on it, or even talk it times. its soo sore, and it cnt even heal because i keep biting it. ugh, someone help!
My sympathies go out to the others with this problem. I have three teeth that stick out on the left side and they tend to catch my cheek and bite it or at least just scrape it.
i have figured out in my case that the teeth probably got crowded on that side and were forced outward. The right side probably didn't acquire the trouble because lost teeth allowed for less crowding.
I have discovered that considerable relief can be gained by quickly rapping on the side of the lower jawbone with the knuckles after a biting incident. The vibration sooths and speeds healing. Your results may vary.
Today I did check to confirm that teeth were sticking out toward my left cheek and so I hope to ask the dentist if grinding them down somewhat is an option.
did you get the help you need yet? When it doubt, don't come on here. Go to any dentist for a limited exam, maybe an xray. That should be a reasonable fee. You don't have to automatically have full mouth xrays or cleaning and pay a lot more than you can afford if you aren't insured. But always take any pain seriously, ok? you could have an abcess (abscess) which requires an antibiotic and or treatment immediately. Dont let fear keep you away, it won't get any better, only worse. Tough it out, and become a dental regular and avoid these nightmares which mean you aren't visiting your dentist enough to feel comfortable there!
Start Doing Mouth Exercises to make your cheek thin... Fill up your mouth with the air as much as you can and move it left to right and right to left.. keep doing this every morning and when ever you are free or when you are in office after brushing. It helps to avoid this gradually in a month..
