I cracked a tooth

While I was eating Sunday lunch. Now it doesn't hurt, but it's quite sharp against my tongue, and it's starting to scratch on it.
I can't stand having bits of food trapped in my teeth, and eating some crisps yesterday, They got stuck, and I was using my tongue to clear out bits (sorry if that's gross), and it kind of cut my tongue up. That means things like steak are out for the next week until I get to the dentist.
Can you suggest some food that doesn't get stuck in your teeth? Wierd request, I know.
Or if there's some temporary way to protect my tongue? I could file it down, but it's not a good idea.
My last two cracked teeth were when I was eating a rice cake and Baked Lays potato chips.
Lesson Learned: that healthy stuff will hurt you
This is about 2-1/2 years after the fact, but I recommend you see a dentist and get your tooth fixed.
If you ignore your teeth, they will go away.
Get to your dentist ASAP. I cracked a tooth eating--of all things--eggplant parmesan. Dentist said a crack, untreated, can lead to more serious complications, meaning more extensive and expensive treatments.
