I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

Gina bite into a sausage and, as she started chewing, her tooth broke off. She stared angrily at the broken piece in the palm of her hand and wondered how she was going to afford a dentist when she was penniless.

The simple past and past participle of bite is "bit".

I sympathize with Gina. Although no sausage was involved, I had a similar experience a couple of months ago -- while traveling on business in a country over 6,000km away from home. My business associates stepped up and found me a dentist who reconstructed the tooth and charged me a pittance for the service. :)

I broke a tooth in a remote part of Cambodia, several hours' journey from any sort of decent dentist. I too know the feeling.

My dentist, Phil Macavity, is wondering what was in a sausage to break a tooth.

I'm afraid he is no longer with us, but my village was graced with a dentist named Yiping Fang.

She did not bite into a sausage. She bit into a sausage.

Is he related to the waffling journalist Phil Space, who churns out meaningless copy for Private Eye magazine?
