Should Parents Pull Out Loose Baby Teeth?

Your child’s baby teeth will begin falling out around the age of 6, and all of the permanent teeth should have grown into place by the time your child reaches his or her teen years. Along the way, however, it’s easy to wonder whether you should try to speed up the process by pulling out loose baby teeth. As a rule, it’s best to leave teeth alone unless they have become extremely loose. At that point, you can use a clean tissue to wiggle the tooth until it finally comes out. Staunch the bleeding with a piece of gauze, and check your child’s mouth for small bits of broken tooth.
