Is it ok to pull a loose adult tooth??

I have a loose back tooth an adult tooth… I realize this tooth will not grow back and I will have a gap. But I just want to know if I can pull it myself?





It is my far back lower tooth. The tooth has been repaired by the dentist many times. Two root canals performed on this tooth, have turned it into ground down useless tooth anyways. The crowns keep falling out and the parts of the tooth that are left are sharp and annoying. I am tired of fixing this tooth and would be interested in a fake back tooth as its replacement.





Is it ok to pull it out myself – currently its loose.

Reply:Only if it is REALLY loose. Then put it in a bag of milk and go to your dentist.
Reply:No No please don't pull out your adult tooth!


It could get infected and what not, it really is a job for the dentist, even if you have nothing put back in its place.
Reply:If it's loose enough, go ahead and take it out!! It sounds like your body is rejecting the tooth and it's trying to force it out anyway. There is no special need for dental tools on a very loose tooth. We only need dental tools when the tooth is fully intake.


Try numbing your mouth with ice... it helps with pain and bleeding
Reply:yes of course it's okay to pull a tooth, but only if the reasoning backs it up. usually reason is decay, which sounds like your tooth. when a tooth is heavily restored with large fillings, root canaled, and/or caps put on them, it's cause the tooth has got decayed so badly that the dentist needed to get rid of alot of tooth.





do not pull it out yourself. it's tempting i know. esp at night when there's alot of pain and you can't sleep or eat. but what can happen and more likely will happen is the crown is broken off leaving the root part of the tooth in your mouth. this 'stump' can become infected, decayed, and ... smelly.





cost and pain are two big reasons people avoid the dentist. if it's cost, try a dental school or a county hospital with an oral surgery dept. many times treatment is free or low low cost comparative to private practice. oral surgeons and dentists are all trained well to take out teeth. impacted wisdom teeth may be something an oral surgeon should take out, but either case, you will be numbed very profoundly and given some good post-op meds when you leave. really nothing to be afraid of.





good luck
