I had a small cut inside my mouth probably due to a sharp tooth about a week ago. It hasn't worsen, but hasn't improved in this one week either. I still am having trouble eating. Is it a matter of concern?

Yes, visit the dentist to trim the sharp tooth first.

Just apply smyle ointment over it. If it cuts again and again then its a matter of concern.

Yes you must visit your dental surgeon and get the sharp margin smoothened. And apply orasep on the cut and chlorhexidine mouth wash regularly.

Dear, small cuts or ulcers heal in mouth automatically, kindly apply dento gel or sensoform gum paint or hexigel, the area will heal. Nothing to worry. Regards.
