    Default Wiggly tooth - to pull or not to pull

    DS has his second wobbly tooth, bottom front.
    His first tooth fell out quite quickly and easily.

    This time, the tooth has been really really wobbly for ages.
    When I move the tooth forward, I can see the new tooth underneath as it has already broken through the skin.

    As it's soooo wobbly and the new tooth is there, should I just pull out the wobbly tooth or leave it until it falls out by itself?

    eeep i wouldnt pull it. it could cause problems by pulling it. it will fall out on its own thats just my opinion though, you are his mum you know whas best. if you do decide to pull it out though just check with your little man first that its ok to do so. (wouldnt want him freaking out mid pull and then have to tooth hanging by a thread and him not letting you pull it anymore)

    Tell him to wobble it lots every day, and remind him that he can give it to the tooth fairy when it's out. He'll probably pull it out in no time. That's what my kids do anyway.
    That said, my DS1 has had 2 teeth like that and they seemed to be jammed against the new tooth, so he ended up having to get the dentist to pull it out as it just wouldn't budge.

    Encourage him to wobble it with his tongue. DS gets real kick out of wriggling his loose teeth free.....gross....kids are gross

    Tis ok, the tooth fell out today by itself.

    But......DS doesn't know where went, he didn't notice that it fell out!
    So we now have a missing tooth LOL.......hopefully he didn't swallow it
