The BBC have reported that the incident happened two years before they aired the Panorama programme.
The BBC claims to have seen daily care notes from Mr Pullar's time at the hospital which state he "had an accident with his teeth" just weeks after he arrived.
His family said they were given mixed messages about what happened and were told at one point he had "bitten the floor".
A police spokesperson said: "The abuse suffered by the patients of Winterbourne View was appalling in the extreme.
"We want to make sure we learn all we can from this, and address any lingering concerns about incidents that took place there.
"That's why, following obvious concerns from Ben's family, we have begun a fresh review of Ben's case."
