Q.

Mond

Goeie more ek wil graag net iets uitvind.
Ek het hierdie slegte gewoonte om my mond altyd te byt, die kante van my wange. Elke keer as ek n klein velletjie binne my mond voel dan begin ek die velletjie byt en later het ek klomp growwe plekkies in my mond.
Sal dit dalk kan veroorsaak dat ek kanker of enige ander siektes in my mond kan kry? Ek byt nou al my mond vir so om en by 5 jaar en ek het gereeld seer in my mond in die aand van al die byt maar ek kry dit net nie afgeleer nie.
As jy dalk van enige manier weet wat ek dit kan afleer se vir my.
Baie dankie
ST

continued trauma to the cheek can cause many problems. My advice is to first see a dentist and have him examine the extent of the problem.
He may be able to make a guard or an orthodontic device to help you break the habit.
