Hi, I have a question.
What does 'get in one's teeth' mean in the following sentence?
"We would have some cookies, but it would get in our teeth."
Thank you guys...

    It usually means to get in between teeth so that it is hard to get out ... except perhaps by flossing and brushing.

    Welcome to the forum. :D <--- big smile because we floss and brush here.
