Three Recipes to Remove Your Child’s Baby Teeth

If you have young children, you know it’s just a matter of time until they get loose teeth that need to be pulled out. What you might not know is which is the most effective and least painful way to pull out that wiggler? Check out some of these tried and true ways to remove a baby tooth. Some might seem a bit outdated but that’s what makes them fun. Check out these recipes for removing your child’s loose teeth.

 

Door Knob Slam

Ingredients:

  • 1 loose tooth
  • Some dental floss
  • 1 doorknob

Directions:

Tie the dental floss around your child’s loose tooth, allowing plenty of slack. Tie the other end of the floss to a doorknob. Slam the door in hopes that the tooth will come out.

Hit the Road Jack

Ingredients:

  • 1 child with a loose tooth
  • 1 family vehicle
  • Dental floss, as much as needed

Directions:

Tie dental floss around the loose tooth. Attach the other end of the floss to the bumper of the family car. Slowly drive away (you may want to have someone hold your child in place).

Nerf Gun Shooter

Ingredients

  • 1 Nerf or similar gun
  • 1 boy or girl with a loose tooth
  • 1 foot of string or dental floss

Directions:

Tie the dental floss or string around the loose tooth of the lucky boy or girl and the other end to the Nerf bullet. Have your child fire the gun away from themselves and watch their tooth go flying.
