  • Yes your orthodontist will pull out the loose teeth. It is basically an oral surgeon who pulls out the teeth but if the tooth is loose and simple tooth extraction is to be done, then an orthodontist can even pull out the tooth. Even a general dentist can do a simple tooth extraction. Orthodontist is specialist in braces and correcting the alignment of teeth.  He can pull out the tooth which is loose.  For complicated or surgical tooth extraction in which tooth is impacted or tooth can’t be seen above the gum line, oral surgeon is consulted. For more info on simple tooth extraction, you can refer to following article…
