Is it really greedy to bite your cheeks while eating? Don’t ignore it!

Science Fiction Network, October 30th (Jin Kaiyi) We all have the experience of biting our cheeks when we eat, and every time the elders in the family will tease and say, “Are you greedy for meat?” Are you really hungry?


In fact, eating something that bites the cheek has nothing to do with greedy meat. When people chew, they need to move their teeth. Sometimes they eat too fast and in a hurry, or when they talk while eating, they will bite the cheek next to the teeth. This is a normal situation. But if you bite frequently, you should be vigilant, this may be your body’s warning!

First of all, biting the cheeks may be caused by people’s daily partial eclipse and picky eaters, and the lack of certain trace elements in the body. The lack of trace elements will cause the oral mucosa to feel itchy, and it is easy to be bitten by the teeth.

Frequent biting of the cheek may be a problem with the teeth. Congenital misalignment of teeth, caries, pulpitis, apical inflammation, missing teeth and other reasons may bite the cheek. In this case, you must go to the dentist in time for dental treatment. If traumatic oral ulcers are caused, you can spray watermelon cream spray on the wound, pay attention to disinfection and cleaning, rinse your mouth frequently, and maintain oral hygiene.

Bad chewing habits or grinding your teeth at night can also bite your cheeks and cause pain. Chewing on one side for a long time, the muscles on the cheeks will become more developed. After a long time, the cheeks on both sides will be bigger and the other will be smaller, and it is easy to bite the meat on the cheeks when eating.

If the brain is temporarily deprived of oxygen, the nerves will suddenly stop, the tongue will slow down, and the tongue or cheek may be bitten when the teeth are closed. Elderly people often bite their cheeks or tongue while eating, which may be a precursor to cerebral infarction, especially those with high blood pressure, high blood lipids, and diabetes.

Frequent biting of the cheeks will not only form oral ulcers, but also may lead to the proliferation of oral mucosa in the corresponding parts, and may even cause scarring and erosion. If there are white, smooth, scaly or red plaques, ulcers, or cauliflower-like tissue in the mouth that cannot be healed for a long time, it is recommended to go to the hospital for a biopsy to check whether it may be oral cancer.
