Should I Pull Out My Child’s Loose Tooth?

When it comes to really loose teeth, my patients sort of fall into two

categories. One category is where they really don't want you to touch their

teeth. And then I have the other set of patients that say please help me

take my tooth out. And in those situations

perhaps what I tell the parent, and I did actually myself with my own

kids. I would take a tissue and just put it over the tooth and gently squeeze

it and it would fall away right away. But again, this is only for the kids who are

willing to do that.
