my lower labial mucosa sticks to my lower teeth. Is it to do with my teeth or lip?
That is difficult to answer without a dentist looking in your mouth. The most probable explanation would be symptoms related to dry mouth. Many medications cause dry mouth and the lack of saliva in the mouth dries out the intraoral tissues causing them to stick to the teeth and tongue.
