The best thing would be to have a filling put in the tooth. But if the tooth is going to fall out soon, the dentist may recommend pulling it instead. Have it looked at by a dentist and then do what you think is best.

Whatever you do don't pull it out yourself. See a dentist its not that bad,

Fill the ToothPulling a baby tooth too early can cause other teeth to move forward and cause misaligned teeth.

It depends on the age of the child and which tooth it is. If the tooth is about to fall out, then pulling the tooth isn't a bad option. Some "baby teeth" stick around until age 11 or 12 or even 13 sometimes, so if it is a young child, pulling the wrong baby tooth could cause severe misalignment. You really need a dentist's opinion on this matter.

If this is an adult patient with a retained baby tooth, and the adult tooth never came in, well they should probably keep the tooth because there is no "replacement" on the way.

If you water a plant with salt water does water move in or out of the roots?

Water should move out of the roots, but if there is very, very little salt, water can still move into the roots. The real question is what the relative concentrations of solutes in the root and in the water are. Water will move from low concentration to high concentration areas, regardless if it's salt, sugar, or other dissolved solids.
