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:

  • You should allow a loose tooth to fall out on its own where you can.
  • 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.

“If your child is complaining that the tooth is very loose, or you’re worried the tooth may fall out while your child is sleeping, you can evaluate how loose the tooth is.”
