When would be a good time to schedule an appointment for an emergency?
When small piece of food are lodged into you gums, it can become a serious problem. Things like popcorn hulls can easily get wedged into your gums and it can be difficult to remove. If foreign bodies are not removed from your gums they can be infected and become irritated. If you feel like there is something stuck in your gums, it may be time to see the dentist. You can try to use dental floss to remove it, or a small toothpick can be very helpful. Be careful that you don’t hurt your gums. If that doesn’t work, your dentist could use special tools and find whatever is trapped. They will also check to make sure there is no infection.
