When you feel something stuck between your teeth, try one or more of these tips to help remove it.
1. Floss normally.
2. If flossing normally doesn’t work, tie a knot in your floss and carefully place the floss between your teeth and pull the knot through gently.
3. If the first two do not work, a little trick is to place a toothpick in between the two teeth where the item is lodged. Push it in slightly so it stays in place and keep it there for a minute or two. This allows your teeth to move slightly. Push on the toothpick once more so the teeth will move a bit further and wait a couple of minutes again. Then remove the toothpick and try flossing again.
