Removing Objects from Between Your Teeth

Home » Did You Know? » Did You Know? » Removing Objects from Between Your Teeth

You will periodically get something stuck between your teeth that is more difficult to clean out than the average bit of broccoli or corn husk. It’s a particular problem for people who have large gaps between some of their teeth. This is generally a very simple dental problem to overcome, but it is important that you do it right if you want to keep it from leading to more significant problems.

The mistake that people will often make is trying to dislodge a stuck item with a sharp object. Such objects can frequently do more harm than good. Not only do you risk irritating your delicate gum tissues, but you are also likely to scratch away some of your thin tooth enamel. If you have a stubborn item stuck between your teeth that you can’t extract with ordinary floss, it may be necessary to call our Federal Way dentistry office.
