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.

How do you train your hair to not be oily at the roots. My hair is dry at the ends and oily at the roots. I have to wash it every day and still by the evening my roots are oily.?

My hairdresser told me that when you've finished rinsing the shampoo out of your hair in the shower, you should rinse it again with cold water. Hot water stimulates the roots of your hair to produce the oil, so if you use cold water last, it should improve your hair's condition.

How can you tell if your hair roots are growing in?

Well, you will start to see your natural hair colour at the top of your head, it will only be a small line, these will be your roots, some people like to leave their roots so they can get a nice faded hair colour, but if you still want your solid colour I suggest going for a touch up. Hope this helped:)
