Why is Food Catching Between My Teeth? (Part 1)


The short answer is that it does! And counter to what many people believe, it happens whether you have fillings or don’t have fillings in your teeth.

 

Obviously, it would be somewhat unrealistic to expect that teeth were maintenance-free.


I carry a toothpick with me because I have areas that consistently trap food, and I like to clear these immediately. Sometimes, there are causes around food impaction that may be modified to reduce or, on some occasions, eliminate the food impaction.
