Your Gum Chart: What’s the Big Deal?

Get Rid of Those Loose Baby Teeth!

Posted on May 8, 2018
Not to get all “get off my lawn,” but seriously, kids these days! Back in the Wild West of the 80s when I was losing my baby teeth, it was all “tie a string to a door knob” to get baby teeth to come out. Well, it turns out that may not be the best […]
