I’ve had something stuck between my teeth or gums for a while – what do I do?

Food or other pieces of debris can sometimes wedge themselves in between teeth or under your gums, which can be painful, annoying, and is likely to cause other problems!

Try to gently remove the object using dental floss or an interdental cleaner. Make sure to be very gentle, since aggressive or rough treatment can aggravate the area even further.

Always avoid using sharp objects to remove anything that is stuck between your teeth. This is dangerous and can cause more problems than it solves. If you are unable to remove the object using dental floss, book an emergency appointment with our team so we can help you dislodge it.
