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.
Maybe you should go to some sort of teeth/mouth specialist? Do those even exist? Haha idk, but don't give up, I'm sure someone will be able to do something about it
Instead of going to the dentist or the doctor why not try to be more careful?
