Preparing your children for their first loose tooth

The transition from baby teeth to permanent teeth can be exciting for your child, but it can also be worrying if they don’t know what to expect.

Key takeaways:

– Make sure your child’s teeth are in good shape by visiting the dentist from a young age.

– Explain the process and ensure your children don’t pull at their loose baby teeth.

– Don’t try to pull their teeth yourself either unless your dentist tells you to do so.

Pulling at baby teeth can cause the child to experience unnecessary pain, bleeding and infection.

If you want to know how to better prepare for this situation, speak to your dentist so you and your child can feel more confident.
