Dear Sir, When the tongue gets cut by teeth accidentally, it heals on it own because of the presence of saliva. However, a deep cut is painful and you can do the following for a speedy recovery and comfort. You can suck on some ice cubes, it will give instant pain relief and also stop bleeding. Further, salt water rinses should be done to prevent any infections. Also, you must avoid spicy food till your tongue gets healed.
