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. most of the time loosing teeth is painless...even if it needs a gentle tug the apprehension is more painful for the child than the actual action!

    I agree, though we've had a couple children really mind losing their teeth. We had to talk them down from their anxiety and sometimes that didn't even hurt. We made it through this stage with this child and no ill affects are remaining. Just in our memory. ;)
    Yeah I think it is the anxiety of possible pain that gets them the most...then when it is over there is nothing!
