Health Tip of the Day

Managing a Child's Loose Tooth

Sometimes a loose baby tooth refuses to come out on its own. If a child's tooth moves back and forth easily without pain, follow these steps to pull it out:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water.

  • Have the child open wide.

  • Using a clean gauze pad to improve your grip, gently pull the tooth out with your fingers.

  • Have the child lean slightly forward if the gum around the tooth bleeds.

  • Using a new gauze pad, apply pressure to the gum area until the bleeding stops.

  • Seek professional medical or dental help if bleeding continues after applying pressure for 15 minutes.
