    Hi,

    Hope this is on the correct part of the forum. New to this so apologies if not.

    I have a extra cusp on one of my very back left teeth. It's kind of like a extra lump and it's sticking out and very irritant to the tounge and I cannot stop touching it.

    Is it possible for this cusp to be filed down so the point is not as pointy and as much of a irritant. The surface wouldn't bother me as long as it no longer pertrudded.

    Thanks!

    Filing down the sharp cusp is very realistic. I personally had a sharp tip on my upper right canine. I had my colleague smooth it down.

    Thanks for the reply just to enquire about tad more the extra cusp is on the back of one of my back teeth. It's not so much sharp but it sticks out and I would like it to be flattened out is that possible? If you get me haha.

    I would refer that question to the dentist that will treat you. It would be his or her call.
