We’ve all had a loose tooth before. They can become annoying: getting in the way of eating, drinking, and everything else involving teeth! Sometimes you can’t take it anymore, and you decide to pull it out.But how? Don’t worry, just follow some of these methods and that loose tooth will be out in your hand.

How to Pull Out Loose Tooth

Method One

Wiggle your tooth from side-to-side (carefully) with your thumb and index finger. But, make sure your hands are very clean, otherwise this could be not be very hygienic.
2. Continue to gently ease it forward to backward with your thumb and index finger.
3. Repeat these steps as many times as needed, and soon the tooth will loosen and fall out. It may bleed a lot, but just take a cotton ball, tissue paper, or a paper towel and hold it gently until the bleeding stops.
4. Eat hard foods. Try to eat carrots, crisps or even cornflake cakes (if it’s a front tooth), as it will come out and you’ll barely notice. If you can deal with a little more pain, try an apple, as it will come out sooner. Even if you can handle pain, it will probably hurt a lot.

Method Two

1. Eat hard foods. Try to eat carrots, crisps or even cornflake cakes (if it’s a front tooth), as it will come out and you’ll barely notice. If you can deal with a little more pain, try an apple, as it will come out sooner. Even if you can handle pain, it will probably hurt a lot.
2. If you are going to pull your tooth out yourself, it’s suggested that you do it quickly to avoid any pain or damage to the mouth or gums.
 
Method Three

1. Wait until your tooth is so loose that it could come out on its own in the next day or two.
2. Wash your hands with soap and warm water.
3. Take your thumb and index finger or middle finger and put them on opposite sides of the tooth.
4. Dig under the tooth with your fingernails until all connecting gum tissue that you can get to is off the tooth.
5. Push in with your nails, twisting and pulling at the same time. It goes reasonably easy this way.

Method Four

1. Put floss in between where the tooth is separating from the gums.
2. Hold the floss in your hands.
3. Pull really fast and hard, either upward or downward – depending on the tooth – but don’t pull forward.
4. Finished.
