“HELP my daughter has two really wobbly teeth dangling but won’t let me touch them. Is it bad for them to just hang there? Should I figure out how to nip them out quick?” Do you pull out a dangling tooth?

  • I only had to worry about this once and I ended up taking my daughter to the dentist who took it out for her.

  • I would leave them – it freaks me out too, but the kids usually can’t resist fiddling with them, so they come out pretty quickly.

  • I guess if she wont let you touch it it becomes harder.

  • It is ok for a toothy to be wobbly and dangle – kids jiggle them!

  • Let it fall out – she can wiggle it and it should come loose. Do not pull it out!

  • Wobbly teeth give me the biggest heebie jeebies. I had to get my 8yo to pull out my 6yo tooth the other day.

  • I would. It’s meant to come out mum!!

  • We used to have our wobbly ones pulled out when we were kids.

  • I leave them to my daughter she pulls them out when she is ready.

  • If she wont let you touch them they will fall out soon -maybe give her an apple or something to bite into and see if they come out.

  • I would try distract her them just pull it it will come out quick and easy and wont really hurt :)

  • Yes, I did this once.

  • They would fall out eventually.. I had my teeth pulled out by my mum with a bit of string.

  • I hope you found a way to rip it out for them

  • Let them fall out on their own.
