Parents Are Actually Using Drones To Pull Out Their Kids' Teeth

This new parenting trend has got to be seen to be believed.

Posted on

A search of YouTube turns up dozens of videos featuring this very twenty-first century way to pull a loose tooth.

This Irish father and son posted one of the first of these videos — complete with charming accents — back in 2014.


To find out, BuzzFeed Life spoke to Mary Hayes, DDS, of the American Dental Association:

"Losing a baby tooth is an important and exciting event in a child's life. Parents have assisted creatively in this process for years. To avoid injury, I tell parents: help the child remove the tooth only if it is very, very loose. Be sure the child is willing and not frightened before proceeding."

With that said, there's also nothing wrong with just telling your kid to be patient and to keep wiggling it.

Hard as it may be for a modern kid to believe, their loose tooth will fall out even without the help of a drone.
