Ever bite your own cheek and find that you keep biting it? The swelling in your mouth from the original injury causes the tissue to get in the way of your chewing teeth. Then you bite your cheek again and again. In dogs and cats, this is called cheek chewers syndrome. The technical term- buccal granuloma. In some patients, this can be a long term and painful condition.

Luckily, surgery can be performed to convert the mouth back to its normal anatomy and a pain-free state.


Have you ever chewed on your cheek or seen this in your pets?
