So, You Need To Pull A Tooth!

Please keep in mind that pulling baby teeth or teeth that are very loose is ok, but a dentist should be consulted if there is any pain or unusual circumstances involving the tooth pulling (in other words, if you don’t know why your tooth is falling out, consult a physician). Now that we have all that out of the way, let’s learn how to pull a tooth the right way!

What You’ll Need

Step 1. Determine the looseness of the tooth.

If the tooth is not loose at all, it would be best in this situation to call the dentist. Loose teeth, especially if it’s already dangling, have a better chance of getting pulled out successfully. Baby teeth and teeth that are loose due to gum disease are easiest to extract.

 

Step 2. Brush your teeth to ensure that there are no extra food particles in the way.

Step 3. Grasp the tooth using the gauze pad and pull firmly.

If the tooth does not come out easily, it is advisable to stop this process and seek a dentist’s help instead. Continuing to pull on a firmly embedded tooth may cause gum inflammation and cause you a lot of pain.

 

Step 4. Once the tooth is out, rinse and spit water a few times. Stop the bleeding by holding another piece of clean gauze over the extraction site and applying gentle pressure for a few minutes.

Warning: If the bleeding continues, is very heavy, or if you have significant pain, call your dentist or seek immediate medical attention.

 

Step 5. You may take an over-the-counter medication to numb the pain. Monitor your mouth and body for signs of infection.

Signs of infection may include redness and swelling at the site of extraction, presence of a foul smell or pus in or near the tooth cavity and fever are signs of infection. Call a dentist immediately if you are experiencing any of these signs.

 

That’s all, folks !
