Guna Benang Cabut Gigi

Ethan has been complaining of his shaky tooth and a crocodile tooth is growing behind that shaky one. I told him to pull out his shaky tooth but he said no matter how hard he tried, he can’t. LoL!

I told him I’ll pull it out by tying a thread around that tooth and tarik out that gigi. He got so scared that he refused to let me go near him. Every single day he’ll complain of discomfort but I told him, if he doesn’t want me to help him, then stop complaining. 

Today, I told him if he lets me pull out his tooth, the money saved from going to the dentist can be used to buy toys for him. Immediately he agrees! Hahahahahaha!

So there we were with me trying to tie the thread as low as possible on his shaky tooth while listening to him complaining of fear and pain.

I only managed to tie it like that coz he wont let me tie any closer to the gums.

While I was busy with Ethan, this Ayden took my phone and started snapping away! LoL! I think he sees me taking pictures of everything that he automatically starts taking pictures of Ethan and I in action. 


Ayden took this picture of me trying to tie the thread onto Ethan’s tooth.

He took the above picture too. Hahahahahaha. So cute lah this boy.

Ethan was very brave throughout the ordeal. We tried three times but his tooth refused to come out. When I pulled out the thread, the tooth stood stubbornly in the gum >_<

How did my father do this effortlessly for us when we were younger? -.-

In the end, I told Ethan sorry no toys. We may have to use the money to see a dentist after all. He got so annoyed and said after all the pain he goes through, he ended up with more pain yet no toys! Haha! Kesian this boy!

I told the Daddy what happened and he quickly made an appointment with the dentist. We will be bringing Ethan to the dentist later this evening. I also told my mother what happened and this is what she has got to say:

tooth extraction

Haha. Macam ni punya Grandma pun ada! LoL!

    The teeth still doesnt want to come out. Either you didnt do it right or it is still not time to come off. Haha. Poor Ethan.

    I used thread once. The very 1st teeth of Jan. It was quick and less pain for her. After that all her teeth came out by themselves. The latesr one was last Friday. ^^ Never see a dentist on loose teeth.

    Oi… Don’t ever do that la, very dangerous ! Later you may hurt his gentle gums! I shudders when I read this and he will endured pain too. Last time I brought hern hern to a dentist for same case like this. He applied some gel onto the tooth and within a second he pulled it out. It was very fast and also not that expensive ,less than rm50. I want to faint now …

    My father used benang like you to cabut my loose teeth too. Maybe Ethan’s tooth is not loose enough so that’s why it did not come out.

    Ayden added another skill to his already large repertoire of baking, gardening, painting, doing craft – photography! Very good!

    I never knew benang or dentist all my kiddo life leh. Every time my teeth started to get wobbly, I would slowly shake them loose with my tiny hands, little by little, day by day, until they came off by themselves. It was a fun game to shake the teeth loose! :D
