I ate a very hard fruit after which I can see small pin head size gaps between front lower jaw teeth and gum line. What should I do?

Hi lybrate-user .i need to see your oral and mouth picture first .so we can able to do the proper examination but you follow all oral hygiene instructions .it will help you a lot. Dental hygiene instructions - 1.brush twice a day with ultra soft tooth brush 2.use floss daily 3. If indental gap is more then use narrow space proxa brush 4.do warm saline rinses 3 times a day for 7 days 5.do not try to bite with your front teeth on hard surface .the chances of fracture of teeth will be more.
