On Wed Night gone, as i was eating my dinner, a filling in a bottom back tooth came out.
Now the only problem is that it has left a hole in my tooth with the side of the tooth razor-sharp cuz the dentist must have cut it down like this to get the filling in.

Anyway, i am in agony now whenever i eat anything. As when i am chewing the food, the sharp bit on the tooth keeps scraping the rightside of my tongue and the underside of it. It is extremely painful, and i try to eat as little as possible to prevent the agony.

My tongue is scraped to bits at the moment.

I have made an appointment to see the dentist on Monday so at least i dont have to wait long to get i fixed.

But does anyone have any temporary suggestions as to how i could eat without my tooth scraping my tongue.

Like, is there anything i could cover the tooth with etc.

I tried to put sellotape over the offending tooth but it wouldnt even stick..

Please help me out someone..

thanks

In the past - I have 'filed' a sharp edge off a broken tooth that was catching the inside of my cheek.

Obviously - a small craft file - not a great big 'b*stard' or 'rasp'

That's a high-risk strategy, as you might catch a nerve. I'd go with the temporary filling kit, it's much safer. Don't chew on that side for at least 48 hours, though!

Blue tack or chewing gum in your tooth.
Bonjela for your tongue.

Good Luck on Monday.

Yeah i was wondering if BluTac would work.. I'm not sure if that would stick to the tooth though would it, with the mouth being wet etc. The same would apply for chewing gum aswell do yis think??

I didnt know you could get DIY filling kit in Boots.. Is this easy to use??

Suppose i'll just have to endure the agony until Monday.. As Boots isnt open til 2pm tomorrow and i wouldnt even bother with only a half a day of suffering left..

Thanks anyways

My OH is a dentist and he advised using blutack or sugar free gum before the temporary kits came out, I haven't asked him his opinion of them and he's asleep now, sorry

Try dabbing a bit of cotton wool in your tooth to minimise the moisture (a q tip would be ideal) before putting in the gum/tack and that should help it stick.

You can also get sticks of wax, used to have them on my brace, you use a lot but its fantastic, and wax tastes surprisingly nice!
