Hello, I'm Dr. Deborah Wheeler. I am a clinical psychologist and the vice president of academic affairs at Argosy University in Salt Lake City. Today's topic how to get rid of a loose tooth. For children who are ready and excited to get rid of those loose teeth and make sure they get some money from the tooth fairy, they probably will be anxious to get that tooth out. Some things you can do are have the child bite into an apple or another hard object that won't damage their teeth but might pull the tooth loose. You know you've seen some of those funny things in the movies where they might of tried the string around the tooth and slam the door, I don't recommend any of those. Don't try any of those the tooth will come out by itself naturally. There's no need to pull on them in any way. If it's like most children, they're going to be playing with that tooth all through school, all day and night, it'll come out naturally, there's no need to do anything beyond that. You don't have to pull, you don't have to yank, nothing is necessary, just let the tooth come loose on it's own.
