    unique fix to a not so unique problem

    I was eating some M&M'S last night and Da*n if when i didn't bite down on one, a small part of my back lower tooth broke off creating a very sharp point that was cutting on my tongue everytime it touched it, which was everytime my tongue moved for whatever reason (eating, talking etc...). I called my dentist this morning to see if he could fix it, but of course he could not get me in until Jan 9th not even just to grind it a little so it was not so sharp. Well, i took matters into my own hands. I used a small piece of fine sandpaper and sanded it down a little. Much better, although I am not fond of the taste of sandpaper grit.

    Try brushing your teeth and laying off the sugar loaded candies. This is a tried and true method. :-)

    I damaged my front tooth when I was 10. Had a route canal. They told me the tooth will get weak, and it could last one year, or 50 years. It held up 12 years and cracked last week. Now I have to get a fake one that screws into the bone. Horray

    If the tooth fractured from biting into an M&M, it is likely that it is undermined with decay. Contact your local dental health care provider for an appointment.

    hey thanks for the obvious suggestion ... i do brush, but i as of yet have not found a way to lay off of the sweets ... if i did not brush a lot more would be doomed, but as it is, only one tooth has been damaged

    Most likely. I had one break once and the rest of the tooth was fine. Then again taht was a pop corn kernal. But still. had the same problem with the cutting tongue thing. Thank god i could go to sick call the next morning. got it taken care of right away!
