I have crowded teeth on the bottom and it feels like there

Customer Question

I have crowded teeth on the bottom and it feels like there is something stuck between them. I've flossed, but it only made it work and now my teeth feel very weird. I've had this problem for years and my dentists have never mentioned any cavities or decay.

Have you had a cleaning recently? Occasionally a piece of calculus or tartar is dislodged and wedges itself between the teeth. It will require a visit and a cleaning to get that piece out.
