I'm back home from the V.A. Dental Clinic. The had me in the Dentist's chair ten minutes after we got there. It took the Dentist and his assistant 20 minutes to rid me of the popcorn husks that had gotten hopelessly jammed between my teeth and gum. I'm DONE with popcorn for life. Brie

    Anything stuck between the gums and the teeth sucks! Glad you are feeling better now. emoticon

    I can totally sympathize with the popcorn hull stuck in the gum. I thought for sure I had an absessed tooth a year ago when it happened to me--it hurt so bad! I have gone back to eating popcorn, I must say.

    I'm glad they got you fixed up and hopefully you are free of pain!

    My mom is in the dental field and raised me to brush my teeth with a timer as a kid. I am programmed to floss everyday. I remember one time I didn't floss properly and I had a piece of steak caught in my back molars. It got all swollen and inflamed and it took me a hell of a long time to get it out. When you are flossing, make sure to follow the teeth and not to go straight down your gums. I think that is key!!! Popcorn is definately the worst. I actually go right to the bathroom and floss after popcorn to save myself the pain!

    I hate that!!! I am trying to keep from going to the dentist until January, when our insurance upgrades. I have two molars broken off below the gum line, and there is an abscess way deep in there. Doesn't hurt. I just have a permanent blister that, when it gets too full, puts a lot of pressure on my teeth and actually moves them. That is going to be one heck of a dental surgery!
