Trapping Food Between Your Teeth

If you have an area that traps food and you are not yet ready to have the dentist repair it, heed this advice. Don’t go ONE meal without pushing the food out with an interdental brush. These type areas are notorious for recurrent decay and gum abscesses. Floss will only push the food around and loosen the plaque. The interdental brush is like a snowplow pushing everything before it.
