pushing out the baby teeth. But in several case it is also possible for baby tooth
to fall before the permanent tooth pushes out the baby teeth because of an
accident or dental disease. In these type of situation it should be advised by the
pediatric dentist to put a custom fit plastic placeholder in the baby tooth place to
make it ready for the adult tooth to emerge as it can prevent future problems
like disorientation of tooth and other dental problems.

wiggle the wobbly tooth in some cases loose teeth can be actually rotated as the
root may degenerated completely. You should take care of the child and remind
him/her not to yank the tooth before it is ready to fall its own as it can make
broken tooth and broken tooth can be more vulnerable to infection and thus
cause cause toothache and other dental issues.
