For temporary relief get the teeth cusps grinding done.. If the cheek biting recurs after repeatedly grinding of tooth, you would need to get the tooth extracted.

This is very common problem that arises during the eruption of wisdom tooth in the mouth at this age . Kindly visit your nearest dentist asap to get the sharp edge rounded off . And get it extracted in near future as it will give you trouble on and off
Next Steps
get xray done for that tooth in order to analyse the development of the roots of the tooth and the position of the tooth in jaw so as to plan for extraction of that tooth .
Health Tips
use of salt water gargles and proper brushing in that area will help you maintain oral hygiene avoiding caries ansd gum infection issues use mucopain gel /hexigel if you experience cheek bite chew soft food so as to avoid any injury to already hurt gums and cheeks .

Dear practo user This is a very common problem occurring with wisdom teeth. The best way, is to get the sharp cusp rounded off or smoothened by a dentist. But it may not help in the long run. When this problem recurs, it's best suggested to get it removed for permanent relief. Unfortunately there is no home remedy for this, except avoiding chewing on that side, or being very careful while chewing, which is practically impossible. For relief from pain, you can apply mucopain gel over the affected area. But this is only temporary.
Next Steps
best way is to consult your dentist
