Hey You guys sometimes eating too fast is the culprit but not always as you said neil, but usually the repeated offence in the same spot is due to incredible swelling once you bit it the first time. You are used to keeping your teeth in a certain chewing pattern which is also determined by the way your teeth are aligned ane growing, you automataticly chew with the same kind of mental blueprint so to speak. So you can be really cautious for a few moments, but as soon as you relax and chew normal, wham in goes that puffed up cheek into the line afire!! just like that swelling is the key usually after first encounter with cheek biting JOY!LOL...OUCHY

Yes I told you it swells rally bad. Your inner cheeck is a terribbly easy place to get an infection rinse with some salt water.. it stings but try to keep your mouth clean until it heals..My Neice was attacked by a large dog who ripped her face up and the doctor said that the inside of your mouth was really full of germs as we all know,... but that risk of serious infection can happen quickly in your mouth and the travel time from the mouth to the brain for an infection is very rapid so don't take it likely, a tooth infection not treated can kill ya . It travels very fast!

SHe is fine this happened many years ago now when my daughter was about 5 I would say..LOL 20 years ago.. She still carries a huge scar on her face, but they took extreme caution with it no sun exposure at all used total sun block to aid in the healing..which was good. The scar is not as bad as It was when she was small, but it is about two inches across on herleft cheeck and she has never had cosmetic surgery to repair it. She is a beautiful young girl!

Two of my three children have been attacked by vicious dogs, I love dogs but also have a healty respect for a dog, especially one in a pen or on a chain.. I have seen that that can make them less social and become mean. Dogs are great but you must be kiind to them and treat them well and never reach over a strange dogs head to pat its head as dogs take this as an agresssive move when your hand goes over their head, especially if iiyou aer a stranger to them. Keep your hand low and your body in a non agressive stature.hands down unless you are protecting yourself from attack!.. My daughter was riped up along her kidney area her lower calve and arms upper and lower. My youngest son put his arms up to protect his face also and had his arm ripped up and had the artery severed in hisright upper arm.. I elevated it and put a 2 quick turniquttes in place as he was spewing.. THen petal to the metal to the hospital where they removed them and fixed his arm.. he had lost quite a bit of blood when I found him at his friends he was about 10 years old or so.. I his friend was in shock baging on neighbors door to get someone to help them. nobody came to help, because they thought it was some kind of joke.. Nathan was holding his armsqueezing it trying to stop the bleedin but was very pail his friend was sweating and white as a ghost scared to death about his dog bitiing Nate.. and just plain scared for Nate .. I don't know why or how I just went to pick him up because I thiought he had had enough time to visit that day so it was pure chance I had drove up when I did.. I saw the panic and the blood , when he moved his hand the blood went evrywhere and his arm had a huge gaping whole in it and I could see the muscle had been ripped at also.. He ended up with lots of stiches and hours at the hospital on the wacky meds and lots of uncomfrotable scrubbing of the wound.. It was a nightmare but I made it until the hospital before I hyperventlated... thank God as I was aweful.. I felt that freezing coming on when I seen him but it held untill the hospital.. So weird.. sorry I am rambling..

Karen, that is a sad story! I always touch dogs from the top to pat them.. But now I know I shouldnt. So what is the best way to approach a stranger's dog, if you want to pat them?

 My children all healed and still have a huge love and respect for dogs as I do!!

You are supposed to hold your hand low below there chin not under until they sniff you and are at ease and sure you mean no harm.. try not to be nervous! You know as if you were going to feed them. Then allow them to smell you and then  you then rub them under there chin if they like that.. then move down their side and to their head scratching ears etc.. don't move on if dog seems apprehensive...and don't move hand from underchin straight over head , scars them and is agressive. This is not true of everydog some are just happy go lucky, but the problem with that is you never know which one was ill treated or will react in such a manner you could get hurt!

Thanks Karen, I'll try that next time. I am actually quite scared of dogs, although I love them. I can tell which are friendly, which are not, so I try to avoid the fierce ones. But if I stick my hand below, I'm afraid they might just bite meh hand off! [:o]

Just keep your hand low not moving toward them until they smell you and are contrent next to you. then offer your hand slowly with a calm voice say come here girl or boy .. Oh you are a pretty dog..offer your hand if he isn't interested don't reach out. just be still act normal.. be calm.. This is ll different if you are being attacked or growled at.. don't make any attempt to pet.. and watch every move you make including retreating a scared dog will bite very quickly becase they are scared, not necessarily because they are vicious!

Oh.. They are sooooo painful, you can't eat sometimes! Heehee, next time if your hubby gets an ulcer, make him put some honey there. You can still just lick the honey off, because some amounts of it go through, but just repeat it a few times. It tastes nice anyway [;D]

Hey, thanks Gutted for that. I'll try the salt next time, though it sounds.. More painful than my honey one [;D] because I think that it would hurt like hot water in a shower, when you have a cut on your knee or something

So why when I have had an epileptic seizure that I have bitten my tongue during the
seizure something which often has amazed me, is that my tongue or cheek if bitten too,
heals within 48 hours due to the antiseptic effect of saliva.
Or so I have been told.  [:P]
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.
