    Default Get something out among your teeth?

    Hello Everyone,

    During eating, it is quite common some flexible food, like a piece of pork or vegetable get in your teeth, one will have to get the stuff out with the toothpick? How to express " get ...out" , and " get in" in standard spoken English?

    Regards

    Sky

    Here is one way to express it:
    I have some food stuck between my teeth. I'll use a toothpick to try to get it out. Alternatively, I might say, dig it out or pick it out.
