biting inside of cheeks while sleeping

6 messages in this subject.

I bit my cheeks while I was awake, and I recently do it in my sleep for some reason. I have been very stressed out, that may be the problem. I woke up this morning with huge bit marks in my mouth. They don't hurt very much but I can feel them with my tongue and it takes a pretty long time for them to heal and then I do it again!!

Well I bite my cheeks at night, and I was told it was because of stress. Try to reduce stress in your life and youíll see a difference. Also, salt does nothing but dry up the ulcer. It may seem like itís helping, but it just irritates it. I was told by my doctor recently that if you gargle hydrogen peroxide (very diluted with water!) then itíll help...

Iíve been told that i grind my teeth by my dentist which is the possible reason why my jaw aches all the time causing me headache ear pain, i have noticed though with ulcers in my case that rubbing salt on the afflicted wound helps in the healing process, for me any way. The ulcer once applied with salt will turn white in colour, excuse my description it will shrivel up like a slug and healing process will commence. Bonjela is another usual means of alleviating the pain but the pain of the ulcer returns with vengeance, i think that salt is useful but it burns for a short while and relieve comes after, i would suggest not to keep swallowing the salt as this will increase your blood pressure

There is another gimmick to stop from grinding the teeth. It was invented by a dentist, and fits on the front teeth. It takes advantage of a reflex that keeps us from biting our tongues between the front teeth. There is even a website about the device, and it seems to be gaining wide approval from the dental profession, and Iíd be surprised to learn it might also be useful for preventing mouth ulcer! http://www.nti-tss.com/
