There's a reason the saying "like pulling teeth" refers to a problematic situation. However, with modern-day dental advancement, tooth extraction is a quite standard and simple procedure. But when kids are involved, it can make things a little trickier. They're most likely getting a pearly white pulled because it's a baby tooth, and the adult tooth is coming up behind it. Which often leads to a tender and painful socket, possibly for days post-procedure. So if there's pain after a tooth is removed, there's a solid chance your little one won't want to brush twice a day as they should. Fear not, parents. Our tips below will help you make sure brushing time doesn't turn into tantrum time.
