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.
