Consult Dentist, Not YouTube, for a Child’s Loose Tooth (Video)

Preventative Orthodontics for Kids 2 in Rochester, MN by Dr. Jim Gores of Lakeside Dentistry

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.

Our Rochester, MN dentists are happy to examine your child’s teeth anytime – whether they’re loose or not. We’ll even pull their loose teeth if you aren’t comfortable doing it yourself. Call Lakeside Dentistry at 507-316-6444 for an appointment.
