  • It seems you have cheek bite which has caused ulceration. It can be due to some sharp teeth or sometimes cheek comes in between the teeth during biting. Apply some anesthetic gel on this and maintain good oral hygiene and do warm salines rinses 2-3 times a day. Actually once cheek bite is there, the repeated trauma makes it worse. Avoid eating from that side and take soft food. If it does not heal in 2-3 days then you have to go to dentist for find out exact cause. If it is due to sharp teeth then get the teeth rounded off. for more info on cheek bite you can check this link in our website... http://www.identalhub.com/dental-cheek-biting-causes-and-treatment-948.aspx
