Hi - A while ago I got my wisdom tooth filled. The dentist who did it struggled and left a sharp edge behind which constantly rubs against my cheek lining and causes ulcerations. Is it possible for them to file it down? Its really irritating and makes my mouth sore. Please advise

Yes, it is quite a simple procedure to trim the offending edge. Almost always done without the need for an injection as well.
