Before you begin, make sure you and your child wash your hands with soap and water. Then, inspect the loose tooth to determine whether the tooth is actually loose.
If you feel that it is loose enough, here’s what you can have your child do to help remove the baby tooth:
It is strongly suggested that your children should pull out their own tooth, as they can best tell if the tooth is ready to come out. This can help reduce the amount of pain or blood that may result from having a tooth come out prematurely.
To make sure your child has a healthy mouth, it’s important to help your children create good habits early in life and lay the groundwork for a lifetime of good dental health. Not only should your child brush and floss, your child should also see a dentist regularly. Kool Smiles provides children with dental care at over 120 locations nationwide.
We can help you learn ways to protect and care for your child’s teeth as they grow up. This is an exciting time for your young one, and we want to help make sure their teeth come in healthy and strong.
If you have any questions about your children’s teeth, call Kool Smiles today!
