When an Object Gets Stuck Between Your Teeth

Every so often, you may get something stuck in between your teeth that is harder to get out than the average corn husk or piece of spinach. It’s a particular problem if you have a larger gap between some of your teeth where pieces of food could get lodged while eating.

This is a relatively simple dental problem to deal with, but it’s important that you do it right in order to avoid more significant issues. It can possibly cause further damage to your gums and teeth.

The mistake that many people will make is attempting to dislodge a stuck item with a sharp object. Unfortunately, such an object can be harmful to your mouth. Not only are you likely to irritate your sensitive gum tissues, but you also run the risk of scratching away some of the thin tooth enamel that protects the rest of your tooth from decay.
