Outer chainring pointy

The teeth on my outer chainring have become pointy, the chain often slips off onto the small ring when under load. Can the outer ring be changed? It a 10 speed SLX M675

Excellent thanks for the link fossyant. Ive just realised it says HG-X chain only on the chainring. I put a KMX chain on last time, would this effect the performance?

PS your's are 4 arm aren't they.

My older LX comes in 4 and 5 arm. I'm the older 5 arm so have a bit of a search for M570's. Got one spare in the parts bin.

You can also use third party rings in thesame Shimano BCD (bolt circle diameter).

yeah 4 arm, that's the cheapest I can find for the the SLX. Do I have to remove the crankset from the bike to fit the new outer ring?

Just realised it's probably the same chainset that's on MrsF's bike - 2 x 10 - much cheaper than my SRAM outer rings, £50 is a cheap buy, nearly £90 RRP - stupid BCD size....

You'll need a plastic bearing preload tool, and some allen keys to undo the non drive arm. The rings are quite deep, so may need the crankset off.
