Home Remedies Aren’t Always the Answer When Baby Teeth Fall Out

“Just wiggle it, honey” may not be the best response when your child complains about the time it is taking for a loose baby tooth to fall out. If you notice your child is in extreme pain, if the tooth is decayed, or if the baby tooth has broken off at the roots (leaving the roots and possible a jagged piece of the tooth in the gums), it is best to give us an immediate call.

At Pediatric Dentistry of Brandon, we are focused on gentle quality care. Let us help your child with quick, anesthetized tooth removal. The alternatives are painful days and nights with associated poor attention to schoolwork, loss of interest in food, dislike of teeth brushing, and risk of advancing bacterial infection.
