What is the treatment to fix the gap between the teeth?

I was flossing my teeth and suddenly a little hard thing came out from between my 2 front bottom teeth. Now I feel like there is a gap between my 2 front teeth. Is there a way to fix the gap? Is the hard thing that came out from flossing plague that had accumulated and hardened or a part of my tooth hence causing the small gap when it came off?

Hi,
Thanks for posting the query,

According to your clinical symptoms i suppose that you might have removed a junk of calculus in between the teeth while flossing, dont worry this is not a part of tooth and needs to be removed, there is no need to fill the gap just maintain a good oral hygiene, brush and floss your teeth regularly....


Hope you find this as helpful,

Take care!

Thanks for using Health Care Magic.

Read your query.

Flossing may have cause the removal of calculus between your teeth.Was any of your tooth decayed ,if decayed it can be possible for the brittle part of the tooth structure to break.

I would advice you to consult a dentist and evaluate the tooth,if the gap is by the decayed tooth it can be filled and covered up.
Depending on the space created ,filling can be done.

Hope this was helpful.
Thanks and regards.
