DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME: Pulling Teeth in New Ways

The Internet is a fascinating place filled with all kinds of unique trends. One type of viral video that seems to be becoming quite popular these days is finding unique ways to pull a loose tooth. Most people know the old home remedy of tying a string from a doorknob to a loose tooth and then slamming it shut, but recently people have taken this basic concept to new extremes.

Of course as dental professionals we cannot recommend trying any of these methods at home, but we hope these videos prove to be entertaining:
