Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • This is quite normal. Unless you have pain and irritation at the area. This is called linea alba.
  • In case you get itching and pain, then please consult your dentist for physical evaluation.

Hi doctor,

I have no pain and itching at that area. Please tell me how to remove the lining.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • As such no treatment is required.
  • If you smoke or consume alcohol, then you will have to quit the habit.
  • You can use mouthwash and saline rinse every day.
  • If your upper and lower teeth near to the cheek region have sharp edges, then you will have to visit a dentist to make them smooth.
