Today seems to be the day when every patient we see are suffering from the same problem………….food traps. We all know how annoying it is when food always gets trapped in the same place every time we eat. Whether it is between a filling and a tooth, by a crown, bridge or even just between two teeth, this area will be a great hang out place for the plaque and bacteria that can cause tooth decay and gum problems. The particular patients we saw today with food traps, had existing fillings which did not have great margins around them. The fillings needed to be adjusted so the space between the two teeth had just enough space to get a piece of floss between (and we all know you should be flossing daily). Hopefully these areas will not be a problem for them anymore.
If you are suffering with problems from existing fillings, or areas where food traps, then please talk to your dentist. They will be able to fix that problem for you
