How to Pull a Loose Tooth…Well, Maybe!

If your sensory kid is like mine, he or she is not too keen on wriggling or pulling out a loose baby tooth. I did get one out before it got too nasty by offering my kiddo a carmel apple (one bite and whoosh! there it went) but for the most part it took a lot of careful tooth brushing and flouride-rinsing to make up for all the food that would get caught whenever the tooth moved until that day when it finally came out.

Anyway, this video of a boy who had his tooth pulled out by a toy rocket was pretty funny. Maybe something like this would work for the reluctant sensory kid (especially since he gets to be in charge of “lift off”)! If nothing else, it might make your child laugh and be a little less anxious about that tooth coming out at some point.
