Hello there.... You should visit your nearby dentist ASAP ...the dentist will do the professional cleaning to remove the stuck particles and take x-ray if necessary... Don't try any home remedies by urself because you may end up injuring your gums ... Take care ...!!

Hi..you must be having pain because of chicken fibres struck inside causing gum abscess. No need to worry. Just visit dentist for cleaning once. He will give you some medicines as well. Regards

Uh-Oh ... This is something I wouldn't advise you to take lightly. Food stuck between teeth, especially of animal origin (in your case, a piece of chicken) might rapidly get infected, causing abscess (pus containing lesion). Attempts to remove it could push it further into the gum (it has already caused bleeding, as per your description). Such food is rubbery in character, and so not easy to remove. It would be in your best interest to visit your dentist as soon as possible, to get it gently and totally removed, & get the region thoroughly flushed by an antiseptic wash. The dentist might prescribe medicines as per need. So hurry ..

Well there are no quick home remedies in such situations and online help have limitations, seek professional help nearby and get an x-ray done. If in pain you can take the same med that you commonly use for headaches.

You need to visit a dentist immediately for removing all the food lodged in between the teeth and for the assessment of the cause of this lodgement. Once the cause is eliminated the pain will reduce.
