Should You Pull Your Child’s Tooth?

To pull, or not to pull? For many parents of young children, that is the question.
At first, a loose tooth may only have a slight wiggle. As your child pushes the tooth around with her tongue, it becomes even more flexible — sometimes you may wonder how it is hanging on.
We’ve seen this scenario hundreds of times. In fact, we’ve been through it with our own children! We know how important it is to handle a loose tooth properly because these baby teeth provide a path for permanent teeth to come in correctly.
