Should You Pull a Loose Baby Tooth?

should you pull a loose baby tooth Fresno

Losing baby teeth is a rite of passge for children: tangible evidence of getting older, plus a little profit if the tooth fairy pays a visit. At Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno and Hanford, we have some thoughts on losing baby teeth.

Sometimes things don’t go as expected. The loose tooth won’t come out, even after a week of wiggling. It hurts so much your child can’t sleep.

If a loose tooth won’t fall out on its own, schedule an appointment with us.

Some things to remember:

  • Don’t practice DIY dentistry. No strings on doorknobs, or pliers in kids’ mouths!
  • If a tooth doesn’t fall out on its own, it might not be loose because the permanent tooth is pushing it out.
  • A loose tooth that doesn’t fall out on its own is at risk of infection.

At Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno and Hanford, family dentistry helps to identify dental problems before they get too serious. Patients from Medera, Selma, and Oakhurst also come to us for dental implants and other services. Call today to schedule your child’s next checkup!
