Maybe you listened to them. And maybe you didn’t. There are many things your moms and dads would have taught you over the years. And if you are a parent today, you would be doing the very same thing for your young children. Teaching them what not to do. And what they may do. But while bedtime fairy tale stories may well still be a very good idea indeed for young children, the real fairy tale is nothing but a myth which needs to be discarded of for once and for all.
Perhaps good parents should be teaching their young children that there is no such thing as a tooth fairy. Or the brave little mouse who places a penny in the child’s little slipper as compensation for its lost tooth. Or yanked tooth. Perhaps that is what needs to be taught to young parents and their even younger children. To not go voluntarily pulling out loose teeth. And rather leave tooth extraction in Forsyth to the professionals.
So kids, who are the professionals in this instance? Qualified dentists and orthodontists, as well as pediatric care specialists, of course. As part of their qualifications they would be licensed and registered practitioners, licensed and registered to practice in your city, county or state. Now kids, why is it just so not cool to yank out your own tooth should it ever become loose? Well, it’s to be expected that it’s going to come loose, one way or another because it is making way for the growing adult teeth.
Once that tooth has come out, its best for the dentist to have a look-see. While he is doing that, he can clean the affected area and just make sure that no bacteria are going to be around to spread.
