Can grinding your teeth cause a bruise on the outside of your cheek?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

We can't give a definitive answer but teeth grinding would be highly unlikely to cause outside bruising. The cheeks are thick and there would have to be very significant damage to the inside of the cheek.
