Ur teeth must be get sharped its common in this age.So visit dentist for grinding and smoothening of ur sharp teeth
You should consult your dentist asap because if this is persisting from long time then it can even develop into cancerous lesion. Precaution is always better, the inclination of your molar tooth towards cheek is the most probable cause. Consult you dentist asap Regards
Due to aging, enamel could have become more sharper,get it smoothened from nearest dentist
Have the biting started recently or present since a long time? You might need to extract your tooth if it is severely out of line or you can also cover (crown) your tooth to eliminate the cheek biting problem.
