Food particles stuck in between teeth
I have been noticing that food particles are getting stuck in the spaces between my inner teeth and I am not able to remove them by brushing. This causes foul smell and irritation in teeth. Could you please advise what could be done about this.

If the cause of food entrapment is cavity in your teeth then you need a restoration/filling of your teeth. If you have gum problem then you need a scaing by a dentist and maintainance by yourself.

Food entrapment results when there is either caries or space between the teeth.So consult a dentist and restore the teeth if needed or else a professional scaling of teeth is essential as there is high chance of gum infection at site of food lodgement.Use of interdental cleaning aids like floss is also advised.

Scaling or professional cleaning helps in maintaining the gum health and the health of the underlying bone. Show to the dentist and get gum treatment done
