How to Get Rid of a Loose Tooth
Having a loose tooth is an age-old problem that everyone deals with several times in their life. Perhaps you were one of those lucky people whose loose teeth fell out on their own without the slightest bit of effort on your part. However, if you’re like most, a loose tooth can be seemingly an insurmountable problem. Although the feeling of having something wiggly in your mouth may be fun for a while, it will shortly become a nuisance., and you will long to have a free mouth again. So, how does one go about getting rid of that loose tooth?
Get Your Friends to Help Out
Well, there are several ways to accomplish this feat. Perhaps the easiest method is to employ any and all siblings or school mates. See, these kids would love to smack you in the mouth under the guise of helping you out! In fact, I have my own personal experience of a wrestling match with my brother which helped removed an annoying loose tooth. It was, and still is, quite an effective method, though perhaps a bit more bloody than others. Thankfully, other than the shocking pain of a hit to the mouth and a possible remaining bruise, the removal of the tooth is relatively fast and painless.
Get Your Parents to Help Pull a Tooth
Now, if this method for getting rid of a loose tooth seems a bit on the violent side, there are other things you can do as well. The next best bet is to ask your parents or a trusted adult. Because, older and more mature people can help carefully and safely remove your loose tooth. They’ll ask you to open wide before grasping that tooth with their bare hands and twisting and pulling until it comes out. Although this may seem a lot like going to the dentist, in reality, it is not. Your parents love you too much to want to hurt you, and they’ll be as slow as possible. However, with this method, the pain might drag out and you certainly don’t have any numbing medicine in your kitchen.
Do It Yourself Teeth-Pulling
So, the final idea for removing a loose tooth is to do it yourself. You can try the age old trick of tying a string around your tooth and attaching it to a doorknob. If these seems to painful, sit in front of the mirror and wiggle that tooth endlessly until it comes out or grab an apple and start chomping as hard as you can.
