Even before the internet, people found some “creative” ways to deal with a child’s loose tooth. Lots of people got their teeth pulled with a door slam, after their parents tied a string to one end of the tooth and the other to a doorknob. The internet has taken it up a little – no, a lot – with countless YouTube videos showing people pulling a child’s loose tooth with cars, quadcopters, even a squirrel.
Call us boring, but we prefer a simple but effective approach to pulling a child’s loose tooth. It’s not worth risking your child’s dental health for a video. Grasp it with a clean tissue and gently squeeze. Watch this video from the American Dental Association for more details.
