Excess white dead cells in cheek, What could be this?

Hello. Ever since I can remember, I've had a lot of white dead cells in my mouth on the inside of my cheeks. I know it's common for people to have this, but I feel as though I have an excessive amount. I have a bad habit of chewing my cheeks, but it's kind of a "chicken or the egg" situation. I've tried holding back on chewing on my cheeks, but the white stuff keeps building up. Should I go see my doctor?

FNAC is advisable to find out the reason for it
in many case it is insignificant and do not required any medicine
but we have to rule out the other condition also
