    I had a small sliver of tooth break off a few days ago.
    Don't know why?? my teeth just crumble lately.
    I thought "ok, biggie,..the tooth does'nt hurt"

    well,...its now got a sharp edge and its grabbing my tongue constantly!! now my tongue on the side/underside is killing me!! (its getting raw)
    My SIL told me to take a nail file and carefully trim the point down. Can you really do that??!!
    Ever happen to you,..? and any suggestions?

    Thanks alot

    uses something very much like a small nail file. And it costs to go in and have him do it. I'd be tempted to see about doing it at home with a small emery board -- if you can reach the spot with it.

    Good luck!
