should I let it dangle?

Straightforward question about front teeth!

dd's is wobbling and bleeding and causing her grief. Excuse my ignorance but this is all new to me. Can't remember what I did as a child either (I'm ancient grin). Seem to recall my brother pulling one of them out. Or should I just leave it alone?

pull it out.

If it's hanging on by a thread, I would get a pieced of folded kitchen roll between finger and thumb and use it to pull the tooth. Have done it with my children's and it doesn't hurt at all.

Yuck! Thanks! I thought you'd say that. She's not that keen but it definitely seems the sensible option ...

[Right ... off to get large pair of pliers ....grin]

Actually, have just investigated and it's not quite at the "thread" stage yet ....

Nature took care of things last night. DD now has lovely gap-toothed smile. Thanks for advice!

Hope the tooth fairy came.

Thanks smile - she will tonight - although there's some debate about whether it's a little mouse that comes over here or a fairy ...

What is in no doubt is the extortionate 2 Euro-piece that, whatever creature it is, will bring!!
