I have an annoying problem. I have a tendency to bite the inside of my lip , usually while eating, but sometimes at odd times when I’m distracted. It hurts like hell, my lip starts swelling, and it affects my ability to play. It plays havoc with rehearsals and gigs.
I have a full set of ceramic teeth, top and bottom (because of my age), which are bolted onto my jaw, and I suspect that since my body didn’t actually make them, it doesn’t recognize them, and if I’m even just a tiny bit unmindful while eating, the next thing I know is excruciating pain. As it swells, the chances are I do the same thing again just minutes later.
My question is: does anyone else have a similar problem? If so, have you found a solution? Any suggestions are very welcome.
