A dental amalgamator is one of the most common pieces of equipment you would find in a dentist's office. They are used to make amalgam, also called fillings. Dental amalgamators, or triturators, are specific machines designed to grind together dental alloys with mercury and create a silver amalgam used in restoration procedures. Even with some of the controversy over using mercury in fillings, many dentists believe that the amount that is actually adsorbed by the patient is minimal, and that there are really no health risks at all. Furthermore, using this type of product for tooth restoration is much less expensive than their resin and ceramic counter parts. http://www.medorder.eu/WOODPECKER-Ultrasonic-Piezo-Scaler-Built-in-...

It is also easy for the dentist to apply, it is stronger and more durable then ceramic and resin. The filling is made by combining particles of mercury and at least one alloy. There are multiple options to choose from when purchasing this type of machine. There are both single speed and multi-speed options that also come equipped with variable frequencies. Many offer programs that are preset into the machine, making it a time saver when it comes time to use it. Having this type of equipment doesn’t mean you are going to have to spend a lot of money on maintenance either. Since these are typically not run for long periods of time, the biggest repairs come after a lot of wear and tear, and tend to be very inexpensive to fix. They typically have little to no electrical problems. That means whatever price you pay, you are sure to get more than your monies worth.

Many people do bite or chew on the insides of the lower lip or cheek, perhaps out of boredom or nerves. This habit is often initially prompted by a misdirection of the teeth that causes the person to mistakenly bite into the lower lip while chewing. This obviously causes pain and swelling, which results in blood filling the area and forming a lump or bump, known medically as an oral hematoma. Although this is simply the result of the trauma, it can extend into your chewing cycle and the wound can easily be opened again. I find that when I bite my lower lip by mistake I often repeat that process two to three times before the wound is healed. As you stated, it can become a nervous habit, especially when there is a palpable bump, but it is important to try to stop yourself because you could potentially develop scar tissue that remains there permanently, or becomes some type of growth, either benign or cancerous. Long-term chronic trauma can lead to abnormal cellular growth.

My recommendation is that you see your dentist and discuss this issue with him. There are several options that can help you deal with it, which may include:

Applying petroleum jelly (Vaseline) to your inner lip over the excess tissue so that it reminds you not to play with it.
Having your dentist remove the excess tissue and place some sutures in the area so you won't have extra tissue to bite on. The sutures will also remind you not to keep hitting them.
Wearing a lower mouth appliance, like a night guard, to keep your lip away from the biting surface of your teeth.
It is also important to have the area examined, and possibly surgically remove the tissue and have it biopsied, to make sure there are no abnormal cells in the area already.
