tongue biting

As a result of a stroke several years ago I continue to bite my tongue at the same location and bite it several times each meal. A dentist ground the edges off the offending tooth (teeth) but it has done no good. I cant chew on that (right) side anyway  so I might as well have the tooth totally ground away but the dentist is too timid or inexperienced to do it right; I'm 82 years old and need some help. I have little faith in the medical community in general. Should I seek out a dental surgeon or what? My speech is also slurred due to the stroke, but that is of secodary concern.
