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.
