Chip stuck in gum! HELP

Hi. I was eating a chip tonight and it broke off and got stuck in my gum. Its behind my front tooth in the gum in the roof of my mouth. i believe i probably have irritated it more now because i keep messing with it. Im in some pain...any suggestions??

Hi,
Do lots of warm salt water rinses.  Also gently try a piece of floss around the tooth base.  The salt water will do the most good.  It will help relieve any swelling around the area and the chip should float out.  Use 1/4 tsp of salt per 8oz warm water and swish.

GOOD LUCK and let us know how you are doing.

Best to you,
Gellia
