Meat Between the Teeth

If after waiting six hours there is still meat between the teeth, one is required to remove the meat and wash out their mouth (either by rinsing or taking a drink) and eat something before eating dairy. If after removing the meat from one’s teeth they ate the meat that was removed, they do not have to wait another six hours (רמ”א יו”ד פט:א).
