    So sorry about that. taking an analgesic temporarily and if you can remove the food items for now. but the best remedy is to book an appointment with a dentist and see him or her asap. Food getting stock in ur teeth for a long time can degenerate to an infection if not quickly taken care off. but for the pain now. paracetamol can suffice for that now. I hope I answered your question. have a good day
