First extracted milk tooth

Growth and removal of teeth are parts of the growth and development of a person before having permanent teeth. Children are sometimes brought to the dentists for tooth extraction but there are also times when a tooth becomes so loose especially when the child already reached the period or age when permanent ones are about to come out that the child alone can manage removing his own tooth. Filipinos have beliefs that the milk tooth of a child that was first extracted should be kept on the roof to bring good luck or be thrown where mice can pass by. If a mouse will eat the tooth, the child can grow healthy teeth
