Children can get into a lot of mischief, and it is quite common for a child to get an object such as a small toy stuck in the teeth. While it might be tempting to take the stuck object out of their teeth on your own, it is much safer if you allow your Bixby Knolls dentist to do this.
To reduce this problem, please do not give small children toys that have tiny parts. Small toys or parts which can be put in the mouth easily can be dangerous for children since the child may get the object wedged in the teeth or swallow it.
What Should I Do if Some Food Gets Stuck in My Teeth?
Sometimes food particles can also get stuck in teeth – not just in children but also for adults. Popcorn kernels are common culprits. In these cases, it is often best to come see us in our Bixby Knolls dental office. We can remove the stuck food safely and also check to make sure no other problems were caused by the food being stuck.
