broken tooth and sore on side of tongue

Ok sort of a silly question my back wisdom tooth on the bottom right side is coming in and along with this the molar that is right next to it is broken off I would go to the dentist for this asap but, I am pregnant and some stuff isnt safe during pregnancy.. but anyways back to the problem.. I have a small sore on the side of my tongue.. looks more like a cut than anything its not bleeding and isnt a weird color like green or anything.. basically it looks like a cut with a piece of tongue sticking out a little bit.. Just wondering if this could have happened from my tongue rubbing up against the tooth at night while I sleep.. It doesnt hurt all the time just when that damn tooth catches it and sometimes when I eat.. what can I do to help this heal?

Re: broken tooth and sore on side of tongue

Unfortunately, the cut will most likely not heal until you get the tooth fixed that is irritating it. If you are in your 2nd or 3rd trimester you can see a dentist. If you don't want dental treatment during your pregnacy perhaps he could put an temporary filling in without anesthetic. Sometimes you can develop a calous on the side of your tongue (aka frictional keratosis) from the constant scraping of the broken tooth. But I would try to have it fixed since it can lead to decay faster which might need more than a filling...
