Losing baby teeth is a rite of passage for children: tangible evidence of getting older, plus a little profit if the tooth fairy pays a visit. At Smile Center for Kids in Sunland and Edgemere TX, 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.
