Tips on pulling teeth UPDATE!

One of my son's top teeth is ready to be pulled. He refuses to wiggle or pull it and doesn't let me or my husband either. He is losing weight because he refuses to eat most things because of his tooth. The dentist wants me to call him tomorrow if I can't get the tooth out tonight. Any tips on how to pull the tooth with a screaming 6 yr old?

It took about 45 minutes of crying and screaming at me, but the tooth is out! I tied dental floss around it and pulled down. That's how I got his first tooth out, but he was determined not to let me do that this time. I finally convinced him to let me just put it around the tooth and when he was in the middle of asking me if I was going to pull it, I just tugged and it popped out. As soon as it was over he gave me a hug.

I would let the dentist do it. Or tell him he needs to do it or he will have to go to the dentist and have it done

I have told him this many many times. In order for the dentist to pull it, it would be a $52 office visit. There is no way I'm paying that much money to have his tooth pulled.

Is the tooth really wiggly? If so I just take a Kleenex and twist. It pops right out and my kids say it doesn't even hurt. However if it is not to that point then the dentist will have to do it.

It's very wiggly. He FREAKS out if I start to twist it.

It has to be done quick! That is the key. Maybe give him an incentive to let you take it out. Lije a piece if candy of TV/video game time.

Take him to the dentist or let it fall out on it's own.
