punch it out

See your dentist and stop being silly.

get a really high powered machine gun and shoot at it until its completely gone...... or your dead.

Baby teeth do have roots, they start to reabsorb as the adult tooth moves towards eruption, so if you don't have an adult tooth to replace this tooth, the tooth you are trying to pull out will still have roots.

The most painless way to get it out is to have a dentist do it. Even if you do manage to get it out, you risk fracturing the tooth (most likely the roots will remain in the mouth). If this happens, you will have to have a dentist remove the broken root, which is a lot more uncomfortable than if they remove the whole thing in the first place. Also, sometimes the teeth fuse to bone (known as ankylosis), which is why a responsible dentist will always take a radiograph before attempting an extraction. If the tooth is ankylosed, it has to be surgically removed.
By doing it yourself you also risk infection and there will be quite a bit of blood.

Only baby teeth which are already loose can be encouraged to fall out (ie. wiggling it). There really is no safe way to extract your own tooth.

If it doesn't hurt, then you can just sit and move the tooth back and forward until it falls out.

If it hurts, you can either:
1. Use a classic one: Take a long thread, tie it against your tooth, and then the other end to the door, and wait for someone to open it.
2. Ask one of your parents to just rip it out.

Good Luck!

ok i think it might help :
- apple
- toffee
-sandwhich (i know wtf)
-fist (accidental)
are things that have taken my teeth

Ha! I haven' though of this for years. When I was young, my dad would tie a cotton around it,and tie it to the handle of the door. Then slam the door. Worked like a charm.But why not wait until it is ready?

I won't suggest pulling it out, as much as you dislike the dentist, go and let your guardian ask an x-ray for your jaw. There is a possibility that the baby tooth will remain if no adult tooth is beneath it.
I saw 20 years-old with baby teeth in their mouth in the practice.

**Remember the dentist can't proceed with his treatment without your guardian's approval and consent.

what i did to make it less painful was putting my face in a sink full of water, and brushed the tooth with a tooth brush hard enough to make it come out. this happened while my face was in the water.

lol is this your first tooth to come out!? It actually doesn't hurt as bad as you think it will as long as it is really loose and basically ready to fall out on its own. hmm no idea on how to make it "easier". I once bit hard chocolate when my baby tooth came out and it didn't hurt at all since it was so fast. Ice it down first maybe that will lessen the pain!

If it's a molar and not loose then let the dentist do it for you!!! There is no way you can painlessly pull out a molar yourself.

My cat drinks bong water
I'm impressed at how well you can use a computer and spell let alone put grammar together properly if you still have baby teeth, but just keep wiggling it.... when it is ready it will come out........play with it all the time though......

Bite into an apple and it may fall out.

tie one end of a string to the tooth, and tie the other end to a door
open the door.

Just mess with it with your tongue, and it will fall out in a day or two.
