Our Advice? No Viral Video Attempts Pulling Teeth In Crazy Ways
Five Things To Consider
- If the child has waited long enough to pull it, there shouldn’t be much bleeding. Pack a small piece of wet gauze and hold pressure there for a few minutes. The bleeding should stop fairly quickly.
- Sometimes permanent teeth push the new tooth in an unusual direction which can affect the gums. If this happens, you may want to give us a call.
- Although not typical, a tooth can come out while eating and may be swallowed. Don’t worry! It’s very unlikely the child will choke on it. The tooth fairy may be a little disappointed, but a swallowed tooth is not harmful.
- Some parents offer their child a fresh, crisp, delicious apple! If the tooth is loose enough, it will likely come out.
