Rachel: i'm 14 lol

how old are you??

i'm thinking not old enough to be on here. you have to be 13.

i guess assuming you're just late with your teeth, let it get a little looser then keep trying to pull it.

pull it out, it can block your new tooth and therefore your new tooth may become poorly alligned

That's pretty common, i not that long ago had a baby tooth pulled out. Nothing major to worry about, just get to your dentist and have it removed.

I had that happen to me but i left it like that for a long time (like a year)and the baby tooth sorta pushed up into my gums and my orthodontist pulled it out (with that numbing spray stuff which really didn't numb it at all) and it really didn't hurt(:
and idk if it would look weird on u but it didnt on me, it shouldnt, its just a tooth, but then i got braces like a week after that xD

Don't try to pull the baby tooth out, the adult tooth will just work its way toward where it actually is supposed to be.

Leave it until you see the dentist, if the pain gets worse or if you can't bear the pain call your dentist to see if he/she can see you in advance.

If you pull the baby tooth out one of your other teeth might come out looking crooked and you might have to get braces, and believe me they hurt!

call your dentist and ask they shud help u

answer my Q pls...


Dani Lou :)
that happened 2 me
make a dentist appointment and they will like push it out
if you dont your new tooth will look horrible like in a weird place

it will fall out sooner or later. If it gets too painful, go see your dentist because you can get an abcess and cause a lot of problems. he will pull it and give you antibiotics (if needed)

You need to maek an appointment as soon as possible to have the baby tooth removed. But don't do it yourself as you likely to cause more damage then good. Get to the dentist as soon as you can.

Leave it - the adult tooth will eventually push out the baby one.

If the pain becomes unbearable - get an emergency appointment at your dentist's and he/she will advise you on the best course of action :)

It'll eventually loosen up some more and come out. If not, try rescheduling your dentist appt to an earlier date.

Book an emergency appointment in the meantime, but don't pull it out; you could do some damage to the other teeth.

This happened with several teeth of mine, and whilst they hurt a bit, the tooth that was growing pushed the other tooth out.

try and get an appointment with your dentist. you need them to remove the tooth, cause if it stays there it will cause the tooth behind it to come out in the wrong position, which cannot be changed without braces later on. i had the same problem with two of my front teeth, and now my teeth are all over the place and i need braces to correct it.
