My 10 year old daughter has had one of her first molars fall out but it is still being held in by what looks like the pulp. I've tried to pull it like normal but it is still tight. What can I do to help get the tooth out? It is currently hanging down below the gumline and I'm afraid I will cause damage if I force it out. Thank you.

  • For the loose baby tooth, it is not recommended to pull it yourself.  It is better you go to dentist and get it pulled out. The adult tooth is just behind the baby tooth and if you try to pull the baby tooth your self you can cause damae to the erupting adult tooth.
