Everybody gets food stuck in their teeth at one time or another. It is something that is very hard to avoid and can become very annoying and embarrassing. So what are the most common foods that seem to get stuck?
Corn and popcorn are always known to get stuck in between your molars and because the kernels are small they can really become annoying! Another common food that people seem to get in between their teeth are spare ribs, with the little pieces of meat easily attaching themselves to the small gaps in between your teeth.
Probably the very worst food to get stuck in between your teeth are apple pieces.Â They are so healthy to eat but the worst when getting stuck in between your top and bottom teeth.
You should always try the very best you can to remove food in between your teeth as quickly as possible. If left, the food will turn into bacteria and can cause cavities and other dental problems.Â IfÂ you are going out, keep a tooth pick in your pocket or a small package of floss.
If you don’t have any of these easily available, and you have food stuck in your teeth that you are having trouble getting out, it is recommended to swish warm water in your mouth as it can help softenÂ and dislodge the food. If that doesn’t work call your Gentle Dental Dentist immediately by calling 1-888-513-7436.
