I was eatting a McDonalds Fry and it punctured a hole in my gumline and I am not sure if a piece of the fry is still in the gumline. What can I do?

  • You can gently do the brushing and flossing. If something is stuck there it will come out. If pain and swelling is there you can do warm saline rinses 2 to 3 times a day. It will give relief. You can use some Good gum paint also which are available OTC. If the problem still persist you have to visit the dentist. The dentist will do the clinical examinatio and if need arises he can take the X-ray to assess the situation.
