The ones that say leave it alone say that it will naturally move forward once the baby tooth eventually comes out, and if you have the tooth pulled too soon, it will damage the root of the baby tooth and cause problems with the permanent tooth.

The ones that say have it pulled state that if you let the shark tooth go too long, then it will never be straight and will require braces to pull it back forward...


Loosing teeth is natural! Let them fall out on their own...however, sometimes a tooth may have a large root and could use some assistance coming out. A gentle tug is all it should take to come out... if it takes more than that the tooth is probably not ready to come out yet.
