How Do You Pull Baby Teeth?

To pull baby teeth, apply oral analgesic to the gums, wiggle the tooth using a clean piece of cloth, gently pull the tooth and press the gum to prevent bleeding, explains New Kids-Center. Pulling teeth is only necessary if they fail to fall out on their own.

Rub oral analgesic on the tooth area to make it numb and give the child pain medication before pulling a tooth, notes New Kids-Center. Move the tooth back and forth using a piece of clean cloth to loosen it up. If the tooth is ready to come out, pull it gently to remove it.
