You can get the area cauterized, that is, they cut the area of the nail flat and put an acid-like substance on the edge to prevent the nail from growing on that side. Works very well.
I would say first of all it is important to wear shoes that are comfortable to the fit. In other words not so tight as to where they would be pushing in against your toenails. This in turn over time can cause one side of your toe nail or other to push into your skin. And after time it will eventually adhere to this skin. As you may know it may be painful and you will need the attention of a Podiatrist to correct the situation. Also clipping or cutting your toenails evenly all the way around, or straight across should help as well. I do not think it's such a great idea to cut your toenails too close to the cuticles however. I hope I have provided a little useful feedback in reference to your question
This will help:
Another way to treat this is to file your nail across the large flat surface of the nail. This is to make the nail thinner in the centre of your toe than at the sides. This will of course weaken the cantre of the nail so that any new growth tends towards the middle of the nail rather than the sides. That will help to prevent new growth 'digging in' at the sides.
If you try this make sure to cut a small 'V' shaped nick at the top centre of your nail. This will help prevent the weakened nail from splitting.
It's a painful condition but it is curable with the above non-surgical technique.
Clipping them correctly is really the only way to prevent them.
