Split in my gums

I've had this split in my gum - it's on the inside of my mouth behind my lower front teeth. It doesn't hurt but it looks like there is a slit that is fairly deep, and another one going from the back of one tooth adjacent to the original slit. It doesn't bleed either. I'm not sure how this happened although I was eating hard, sharp pretzels and bread with thick, sharp crust. Has anyone ever had this before?

It's been going on for about a week and a half. I haven't been to the dentist yet but I'm just being careful not to eat on that side and injure the tissue more. Since my tongue pulls on it, maybe that's one reason that it doesn't seem to heal up. I know sores heal slowly in the mouth. If you know what I'm talking about or have any suggestions please post. Thanks
