I've been looking all over for any answers on this and I can't seem to find anyone with information so I'm asking here as it looks like there is some good communication and response here.
I recently went to the dentist for the first time in many years and I had my teeth cleaned with a sonic scaler, first time I've ever had this done. Ever since I had this done the "strings" and "tendon" under my tongue keep getting caught. I spoke to the dentist about this when I saw her last and she said I would learn to not move my tongue in a way that it would keep happening, but now I've just developed a complex about it. At first it was only the connector tendon that would get snagged, and I mean badly stuck to the point of tearing. So I became very aware and careful when ever I stuck my tongue out of my mouth to say lick my upper teeth. Now recently I've been getting the little dangley pieces caught and tonight I actually tore a piece of one off while I was gargling!
I just don't know what to do, I really feel the hygienist shaved down the tooth in that area and caused a wider gap, because even before I never had this problem in my life and I have no idea what to do now.
Any advise is appreciated, thank you for your time.
