can you pull it out by the end? like slide it out instead of pulling it down? my teeth are really close together, but floss is pretty slippery, it should slide out...


altered ego
That is the most annoying thing in the world; i once ended up with the entire contents on the bathroom stuck between my teeth, well almost. Keep battling on and good luck. P.S. DO NOT USE THE TOILET BRUSH (trust me)

Tooth pick....go see a dentist.

Get a better floss!!! Your either doing something horribly wrong, or your floss is crap. My teeth are so crowded that it hurts to force the floss between them, but never has it gotten stuck.


Noryb
pull it out with a tweezer

or try a different brand of dental floss.. one that's unbreakable (I like Glide brand)

Use a floss that doesn't shred such as Glide by Crest, Satin Floss by Oral B, Colgate Total Floss, Eze-Thru by Butler GUM or Eze-Slide by Johnson & Johnson. Floss through between your teeth but don't try to bring the floss back out yet. Let go with one hand and pull the floss out the side. If you still have something stuck try flossing with a double piece of floss and pull it out sideways again. You could also try tying a knot in the floss then pull the knot through between your teeth (floss through with a smooth piece of floss then release with one hand and pull through so that the knot passes between the teeth sideways).

SOME OF THE BEST ADVICE IS TO USE A NON-SHREDDING BRAND. YOU HAY WANT TO ALSO TRY USING THE CREST 'EASY-GLIDE PICKS.'
THE SMALL DISTANCE BETWEEN THE ENDS IS A BIG REASON WHY THESE FLOSSERS DO NOT SHRED EASILY AND WHY THEY'RE SO EASY TO USE.

Get some WAXED dental floss. Tie a simple overhand knot in the middle of a piece of floss. Drag the knot back and forth a few times to try to snag the shreds that are already stuck in between your teeth. Good luck!

Get a better floss. Make sure it says "non shredding" on it.

It happens a lot so don't feel like your the only one. Take a piece of floss and tie a single knot in it, place the floss as you normally would, and pull it through letting the knot slide under the tissue, gently removing the caught pieces. I know it sounds painful, but it really isn't. Hopefully this will work, you may have to try a few times. It's usually the first thing we try (to remove food, floss and other things that get lodged in the tissue) before we pull out the explorer and scalers. The best thing to do is to calm down and just take a break from it for a few minutes, then go tackle it again. If you can't get it out, just call the dentist in the morning, it will only take him a second to get it out. If your dentist office is closed on Friday, most of the dentist or office managers are usually there doing paper/computer work and other things in the mornings, so if you call you may catch him in. If not leave a message or page him, it's not something you want to leave under the tissue all weekend. Good luck and hopefully the "knotted floss" will remove the "floss."

Additional information: If your floss is getting caught there frequently it may be a rough filling or decay below the gum line starting that's catching the floss and causing it to shred. Most floss is non-shredable these days but you might want to try the "tape floss" it's wider yet thin, also have your dentist check this area out if it feels rough to you. Good luck, I hope you got it out last night.
