A child with a loose tooth can result in mass hysteria in your home. Trying to get them to make the decision to pull the tooth is like riding a seesaw. They fluctuate between wanting it to come out and wanting it to stay put because they’re afraid it’s going to hurt. If the tooth is ready to come out, the pain and discomfort will be minimal. A loose tooth and painless removal technique can lead to one happy, little camper.

 Tips to Pull Out a Loose Tooth Painlessly
Here are 4 simple tips to pull out a loose tooth painlessly:

  1. Keep Moving the Tooth
    Have the child keep moving the tooth back and forth. Wiggling it with their tongue allows them to remain in control of the situation. It also results in them taking care of the situation on their own without any outside assistance.
  2. Wet Wash Cloth/Gauze
    A cool, wet washcloth or piece of gauze also works well. The colder the temperature, the less pain and discomfort when the tooth is actually removed. Once the tooth is out, the gauze or washcloth can be used to stop any bleeding that occurs.
  3. The String Method
    This tried and true method still works like a charm. Whether you tie the other end of the string to a doorknob or the dog’s collar, the tooth will come out quickly and efficiently. You may actually have a few laughs to help ease whatever pain may be experienced.
  4. Visit the Dentist
    There are times when no matter how hard you try, a tooth will just not give way. If the tooth is beginning to cause problems, it may be a good idea to pay a visit to the dentist and have them remove the tooth.

For loose tooth painless removal techniques, visit your dentist or use the tips above. Either way, the problem will be solved and the uncomfortable waiting will be over.
