ouch! tooth hurts
For about two months I've had a strange feeling in one of my teeth. Everyday, it feels as if food is stuck in my tooth. I have a crown on the tooth next to it, and there seems to be a lot of space between the crown and the tooth that is bothering me. I floss my teeth every night before bed and have to work hard to pull out pieces of food that are badly stuck (especially pieces of vegetables from salad). It's becoming really painful around the gum area. I'm not sure if this is a cavity, a broken filling or even too much space in between teeth. The more I floss, the more the gum is irritated, but it helps to get the food out. Please help!
