  • It is not the tooth chip which has come out with floss but it looks like the plaque ie extra deposit on tooth and get calcified, has come out. Normally this dental plaque is removed during the dental cleaning but if it remains then it come out with dental floss sometimes. As plaque deposited on whole tooth does not come out and due to this you feel unevenness on tooth. Now just schedule a visit with your dentist who will do scaling and cleaing which will take care of things.
