Hi, I lost part of one of my cavity fillingds from years ago. I feel like I have a blade in my mouth. Wha's left feels really sarp but I am not in pain and hate the dentist. I rather cut my toungle than visiting the dentist. Can I ignore it and not go.Answer Question
Yes, but it will become worse. It can become infected, and eventually you will lose your tooth regardless. It can also cause bad breath (as food can get stuck in the opening).. Trust me, an infected or abscessed tooth is not something you want to deal with if you don't like pain. I would rather have somebody saw off a limb without anesthesia than have that happen.

You can also ask your doc for a xanax or other anti-anxiety med if your fear is enough to keep you from seeking treatment.

I would strongly suggest having a dentist take care of it because food will continue to get inside that tooth and it will become infected and could cause an abscess. Eventually you will NEED a root canal. Pharmacies actually sale a product that you can use yourself to fill the whole in your tooth from a loss filling. I have never tried it but it's something that could work temporarily. Just remember that you should still get it permanently fixed at some point by a professional.
