hi all.. about 2 months ago i had what appeared to be a white line running along my cheek... it is where my teeth probably chew on it when i chew food and in my sleep... as far as i know.. i always had a line on my cheek in the past..but in the last week.. things have changed.. its a big open wound now (about 1 and a half cm).. it doesn't seem to be getting any better.. just worse...

Last time i was at the dentist the dentist noticed the lines but didn't say anything to me just to the other dentist in the room.. I've been to the doctor and showed her and she said,if it doesn't heal in a month come back.. A month??? isn't this a bit long to sit around with something like this?
