Can I file down my tooth myself?

Home More advice Health

So I have one baby tooth that doesn't seem to want to come out. It has cracked, but that's about it. Yesterday night, I ate some jelly beans and 1/4 of my tooth came out. The tooth itself doesn't hurt the gum, however, its sharp and when I move my tongue around, it gets caught on the sharp edge and gets cut. I'm not going to waste money just getting it sanded down by a dentist so it can come out a few weeks later. Can I file it myself considering it is only a baby tooth?
