I constantly bite my lower lip when eating. It's very painful and I would like to knnow why this is happening. One thing I would like to mention that it strted happening after I had three back teeth pulled and two upper front teeth cracked. Could my teeth shifted thus causing this to happen?

Hello thanks for consulting at hcm..
You can blow air with mouth closed..so that your lip and cheek gets away from the sharp teeth surfaces..if empty extracted space is there, teeth tends to move into those spaces resulting shift in occlusion..
please have a consult with a oral physician for a check up and treatment.. For empty spaces you can get teeth restored removable or fixed crowns,, or you could also go for implants..You need teeth for chewing food also,, thereby it will improve your general health also,,
Hope it helps,,take care,,
