Just pull the d@#% teeth out!

My 7yo has taken two knocks to the face in the last couple days. The first was doing a flip on the swing set and falling, and now just tonight his younger brother accidentally hit him with the back of his head. His two top front teeth were already loose before all this, and neither of those things succeeded in actually knocking them out, but they are so close it's ridiculous. He won't pull them, and he won't let me near them. Tonight the one on the left bled a lot when it got hit. I'm worried about him going to sleep with them so loose. What would you do?

I know it makes you nervous to not pull them yourself but I wouldn't pull them.  He will probably wiggle it when he is awake and it will eventually be wiggled off.
I would be afraid that I would cause root damage if I pulled it myself.  I'd rather consult his dentist.  With all that bleeding he might get an infection.
Hope they come out soon.

Thanks. He is sleeping now. He is one who can't leave anything alone. I'm sure it'll be wiggled out in no time.

I loved wiggling my loose teeth around when I was a kid, lol.
It probably won't take too much time and it will be out ;)

Quoting heydooney: Thanks. He is sleeping now. He is one who can't leave anything alone. I'm sure it'll be wiggled out in no time.

Oh no!! I would pull them out. My mum always pulled ours out if they got too wiggly.

I tried to let them all fall out on their own...My eldest tho, she would put her head in my lap and want me to pull hers out...Once I made Katie eat an apple, nothing...I made her a grilled cheese, it came out...Good Luck...
