Objects Stuck Between Teeth

In its most recent report, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission stated in 1991 that more than 100,000 cases of facial trauma occurred in children younger than 14 while they participated in sports activities.
Try gently removing the debris with dental floss. Be careful not to cut your gums. Never use a sharp instrument such as a needle or pin to remove any object that is stuck between your teeth. If you can't dislodge the object using dental floss, contact your dentist.
