Please help!!! My daughter has had a loose tooth for 2 months now, it is ready to pull out but she gets so distressed she wont let me or her dad near it, her other tooth is growing out of the gum because of this. I am getting really impatient and dont want to get her put to sleep by a dentist to remove it...Any suggestions??? I have tried apples, melons, even candy to get this toot out!!!

Thanks Cheryl she is 6, I will get the numbing gel today and see if that helps.

i am a dental assistant and see this all the time. she does need to wriggle it, but yes, she says it hurts, one way might be to get some numbing gel and rub around it, so she cannot feel it and then get her to wriggle it like mad. This would be a far better way than getting a dentist/therapist to numb it their way to take it out. You want the new tooth to move into its right position so it ultimately has to go. How old is she?
