Should You Ever Pull a Loose Baby Tooth?

When your child’s baby teeth become loose, it is a sign their permanent teeth are starting to come through. Your child’s dentist can answer any concerns you have about a loose tooth.

Key takeaways:

  • Encouraging your child to wriggle their tooth can help it loosen and fall out naturally.
  • Never attempt to force a loose tooth out if it is painful when your child wiggles the tooth.
