I once had a popcorn kernel hull stuck in between my back molar and the gum where my back wisdom tooth used to be. It was like perfectly equal to the curvature of my molar, so flossing and swishing did nothing to dislodge it, because the floss couldn't get under the edge and slid over the smooth surface. The gum started to swell and I was really starting to get into pain.

I live on a horse farm, so I have access to sterile syringe needles, so one night I put some 100w equivalent daytime CFL bulbs into the fixture above my medicine cabinet and using the mirror started pushing down on the edge of my gum until I caught a glimpse of amber. I caught the edge of the hull against the tooth with the needle point and slowly pulled up till I could get more of the edge exposed and repoisitioned. One more push up and it was out.

Such relief.

I made the mistake of eating popcorn the night before a dentist appointment and I couldn’t get one piece out that was trapped under my gums. It was pretty embarrassing when the hygienist got it out but she was understanding. I’m just glad they got it out cause idk how long I would have been suffering with it in there if I hadn’t already had an appointment.

2

Right at the back I have a gap between the gum and the molar, the amount of food that gets stuck in that gap. I have to use tweezers and dig it out. Probably not wise, but not much option either.

u/BlerpDerps Dec 08 '21 edited Dec 09 '21

Tip: stay away from toothpastes that say “whitening” or market whitening as their main thing. They are full of abrasives to try and scrape the stains off but in actuality, you’re slowly scraping away at your enamel and making your teeth prone to cold/hot sensitivity. 0/10 do not recommend lol

Edit to add: also, make sure you look for the ADA (American Dental Association) seal on all your dental products! It’s not a guarantee of the product itself but it’s a good safety net for not using stuff that’s terrible for your teeth. And make sure you check for it every time too! Sometimes, the same line will have a change in ingredients and the ADA seal goes away until they’ve had a chance to re-evaluate the product. Do not use until it has the seal again! (Ex: Colgate changed a BUNCH of their lines and the seal has yet to reappear on most even though the changes happened over a year ago.)

Tip2: Brush your tongue people! Think about it: your teeth aren't the only thing in your mouth coming into constant contact with food. This is my favorite tongue brush (it doesn't have an ADA seal but it doesn't really need one imo). A nice plus to this is it also helps a ton with bad breath! :D

With fluoride containing mouthwash, sure. With water, no.

u/DoctorPaquito Dec 08 '21 edited Dec 08 '21

The fluoride content of fluoride mouthwash is minuscule compared to actual fluoride toothpaste, though.

I’m not a dentist, but the consensus I’ve seen on r/AskDentists is that you should not rinse at all after brushing, and that mouthwash is not really promoted/recommended in the same way as flossing and brushing unless it is for a particular reason.

If you really do want to use mouthwash, though, an acceptable order would be:

  1. Floss (both sides of each tooth)
  2. Mouthwash (swish for no longer than 30 sec, and be aware that alcohol washes are drying and potentially irritating)
  3. Brush (fluoride toothpaste, preferably electric brush, and use little to no pressure)
  4. Spit but don’t rinse

Again NAD but this is my understanding.

Have you smelled the stuff you floss out of your teeth? Cause it’s significantly less gross smelling in one’s mouth and tasting when you floss daily. No one can convince me leaving that stuff is just the same as flossing, dental hygiene wise. Maybe it’s just pointless to recommend to some because most people don’t even bother with it.

When I was a teen this happened to me. I thought I had something genuinely wrong with my tooth, it was painful and bleeding all the time but we couldn’t afford to go to the dentist.

u/TenseEye Dec 08 '21 edited Dec 08 '21

You're right and anyone who downvoted this on instinct is incorrect. Water picks are used by dentists to flush away anything that their flossing has gotten loose, but not rid of. It's meant to be used the same way at home. The water pick does not have the force needed to get the stuff out on its own between your teeth, you would be damaging your gums by the force of the water needed to do that.

ETA: YMMV, see /u/drthrowaway0829's comment for more info. Mine may be out of date.

5

u/Vendrinski Dec 08 '21

that's disappointing.. I just bought one online and all of these products advertise themselves like they replace flossing and "get rid if 99,9 percent bacteria"

false advertising at medical costs is cool

7

u/TenseEye Dec 08 '21

I mean don't get me wrong, if you do it in conjunction with flossing it is better for your teeth and your breath will smell nicer! But yeah it's disingenuous to say it will completely replace flossing and I'm actually surprised they haven't been pegged for falsely advertising that, or knowing how some of the laws are they were able to fudge one study that suggested it may compete with flossing and that's good enough.

2

u/Vendrinski Dec 08 '21

I remember one of these products specifically said that it's more effective than flossing while the rest was simply hinting at it. The numbers on the image of the product also don't fit the numbers in the description in most of these.

u/Markie411 Dec 08 '21

They said 99.9% which means not all of it. Checkmate lawyers.

14

u/drthrowaway0829 Dec 08 '21

Hi sorry, as a dental student, this is incorrect. Water picks and flossers actually show MORE evidence of being effective at flossing our teeth than floss itself. Most do in fact have enough force and pressure to get between our teeth (I recommend asking your dentist for their preferred brand), and moreover, they clean under the gums in places floss can’t reach. Particularly, they clean the pockets where our gums are loose from our enamel. If those areas aren’t properly cleaned, they lead to bacterial growth and gingivitis. Eventually, they can lead to periodontitis and more frequent dental cleanings.

(You can also mix mouthwash into the water tank for an extra-clean feeling and fresh breath!)

6

u/TenseEye Dec 08 '21

Oh, maybe information's changed then. All my info is from my dentist because I was curious about water picks a couple years ago and asked them about it. He did mention the loose enamel pockets but said that's why you're supposed to floss and use the water pick, he said he'd never recommend someone to fully forego flossing in favour of a water pick because the vast majority of people are also not trained properly to use it how it's meant to be.

2

u/drthrowaway0829 Dec 08 '21

I think that is exactly the problem! Water picks are incredibly effective tools, and we generally recommend them to people who are already having trouble maintaining flossing habits. We usually try and teach them how to use them effectively! At the end of the day, even minimal use of the water flosser is better than no flossing at all, if they are a person who is not flossing regularly!

ETA: always follow your dentist’s recommendations first. I am, after all, still an internet stranger :)

State (wet) goes before color (and age, shape) but after size. Wet is not a material. adjective order

In that list, "material" is the best fit for "wet".

For the lazy who don't want to click the order you linked, it's:

quantity-opinion-size-state-age-shape-color-pattern-origin-material-purpose

I like the more complete list, and I like "great, wet, red beast" better than "great, red, wet beast".

Yea "great wet red beast" would be the most correct way to write this.

It's not "wrong" the way it is in the sense that it's incorrect grammar, it's more of a soft guideline. But when it's wrong it's glaringly obvious because the sentence sounds weird.

I love poppy seed bagels so much I started to bring toothpicks with me everywhere because of them. Toothpicks with the little floss.. it’s a game changer

Everyone here talking about flossing and no one mentions the superior interdentalbürsten!

This made me go brush my teeth

I had a Chinese food for dinner, and a piece of beef got stuck between my teeth. This made me floss and brush.

I loved this and I audibly laughed, instead of just blowing air out my nose. Thank you.

Crushed red pepper flakes got me one time. It was really stuck and kinda burned a little too, but I didn't mind because I figured the capsaicin was killing any germs in the vicinity

I read this as poopy. Not 1, not 2, but 3 times.

I switched from floss to a water pick. It works way better and doesn't hurt as much.

u/Lostmahpassword Dec 08 '21

You may have been flossing incorrectly. It shouldn't hurt.

1

u/abishop711 Dec 08 '21

Just fyi, you shouldn’t replace flossing with the water pick. The pick is meant to flush out anything dislodged by flossing. Floss first, then pick.
