How to Pull a Tooth
This occasion marks a memorable moment that many people take with them for the rest of their life. This is the beginning of the growth of permanent teeth, which will then grow into a beautiful smile that will last a life time. When pulling a tooth it is important to always have an adult around to help. Now it’s time to start working on pulling that front tooth. All we need is our pointer finger, an apple, wet paper towel, glass of water and an ice cube. Let’s start wiggling that tooth!
Let’s start working out the tooth to help it come out a little easier. First, we need our pointer finger for this ...view middle of the document...
At this point it seems like a good stopping point for a snack, right? For this step we need the apple, not so much for a snack but to help with the pulling of the tooth. The apple is going to help put a little extra pressure on the tooth just enough to pop it out. Make sure the first bite is a big one. We’re going to count to three and on the count of three take one big bite into that red, juicy apple. Ready? One…two…THREE! Did it come out? The tooth should now have fallen out, but if the tooth didn’t come out we need to continue to chomp down on the apple until the tooth falls out.
This step can be a little messy. Now that we have pulled the tooth we now need the wet paper towel, glass of water and the ice cube. Let’s dab the wet paper towel on the bleeding gums to help clean up some of the blood. Once the bleeding begins to stop, let’s rinse out our mouth with the glass of water. Don’t swallow the yucky water; spit it out in the sink. After rinsing our mouth, we need to place the ice cube on our gums. The gums are going to be sensitive, so we feel a slight tingling feeling. The ice is going to help stop the bleeding for good.
We did it! We have completed one of our life’s most remember able moments, an exciting story to share with friends and family. Now it’s time to show off our hard work, so make sure to smile real big. Be sure to keep that tooth in a safe place, and don’t forget to put it under the pillow tonight for the tooth fairy!
