Pull the damn tooth out


My daughter has had a loose bottom tooth for 6 months. No 10 months. No since birth, it seems!

It is all black, covered in plaque because she won't brush it, and hanging by a thread. Or half a thread.

I want to yank it in the middle of the night but I don't know if that's possible? My fear? That she'll clamp down on me like a pit bull and I'll lose a finger.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Tactics?

It's not like she hasn't lost any up til now. Proof in point:

Oh, and there is this one that has NOTHING to do with her teeth, but I just think it's so damn cute:

Hope and pray she swallows it in her sleep. That's how Belly got rid of 2 of those danglers.

That, or let her eat as many Laffy Taffys as possible this week. Or, threaten to take her to the dentist so he can take it out. Sometimes that will get them to wiggle it a bit.
