    I would imagine drinking brine and rinsing with salt-water are just about the same thing, no?

    If you wish to bother everybody with asking that, yes, in effect they are the same thing.

    For the consert:

    Don't drink brine. Rinse and spit.

    Drink lots of water to hydrate and that will help your injury too. Chopsaver, ice, also help. Share the part as suggested.

    If you cannot eat without injuring your lips, you need to see a dentist, and maybe your doctor too.

    It seems like once an area of the mouth is bitten, it just keeps happening for a period of time :( A few months ago I bit the inside of my cheek and it seemed like I kept biting the same spot at least 4 times a day, sometimes several times in a meal. It was so painful for about a week. I just tried to be mindful of it and careful not to chew on that side.

    Keeping hydrated should help along with a salt water rinse. If biting in a particular area becomes a recurrent problem you should see your dentist.
