    Ok so I have spent the past hour trying to get pieces of dental floss out my teeth and it still hasn't budged!! I have used tweezers, nylon thread, dental appliance and its not moving.

    Just wondering - has anyone got any good ideas or shall I just wait for it to move itself? (only issue is its putting two of my teeth under pressure and its annoying me).

    Have you tried using more dental floss to dislodge it? Sorry if that seems like such an obvious question lol.

    Something oily should help. Can't think of many conventional ways to get something oily and palatable in your mouth, though.

    Yea I was trying to avoid it incase I got more stuck, but as daft as it sounds its dislodged the piece that was putting my teeth on edge. Still a lil bit left, but I can now sleep in comfort now.

    Don't have any, but I used warm water and it didn't work.

    Flossing my teeth. I do it every night and for some reason tonight it just got stuck! Because my teeth are so close together and has shifted I think its why the floss got stuck! I think im going to invest in the silk version that is suitable for teeth that are close together. Just spent 1hr and 20mins trying to get rid of it and finally its dislodged, just about!

    That will be my last resort should I struggle tomorrow to get out the last loose floss pieces. Fingers crossed I don't heave!

    A small piece of butter would probably do it. It can be small enough you wouldn't even know you had it in your mouth.

    So the floss doesn't stick out from between your teeth at all?

    Eugh, even the thought of putting just butter into my mouth would make me feel quite sick
