One of my top left molars keeps cutting my tongue. It feels sharp and pointy. What will happen to the tooth if I go to the dentist? Thx. Sienna
Sienna – A dentist will examine your tooth. The sharp part of the tooth that is cutting your tongue will be gently shaved, shaped, and polished.
The procedure is called tooth reshaping or contouring. It is completed in a few minutes. You will feel a slight vibration while the pointed part of your tooth is reduced, but the process is painless.
