I agree- try switching dentists- I think ideally they should take some impressions and articulate to check that you don't have a weird bite due to your teeth being angled towards your cheek. They should also have checked your path of closure to check its not the muscles acting up- Hope this is helpful :)
Glad to know i'm not the only one! Granted I don't bite a chunk of my teeth, I do bite my cheek/lower lip on a regular basis while eating. I eat a certain way now to avoid it. Not only is it painful but whenever I bite the chunk of it, it turns into an ulcer (canker sores.. is what I think they're called) and that takes a few days to go away. This one particular time, I did bite down my cheek hard and it got to the point where I couldn't even eat or even drink water for two freaking days-- I went to a doctor and a dentist only to be charged $250 (combined) and be told that they don't really know what to do and couldn't even prescribe me any medicine except mouth-numbing mouthwash. I was literally in agonizing/disabling pain for a whole week. I could've bought the mouthwash myself and saved $250! Ugh.
Get a new doctor and dentist?
it happens to me all the time. it hurts like crazy!
