How it works -- GatorGripper® Use

Select proper setting

The gator's tail is used to "grip" the tooth. The top setting (nearest to the "tooth-gripping end" or the gator's tail) usually works best for smaller "front teeth." The bottom setting (furthest away from the "tooth-gripping end") usually works best for larger "back teeth." If confused about which setting to use, either works well for any tooth!!

 

Technique

Squeeze the handle (gator's head) and place on a loose "baby tooth." Gripping tip should be next to the child's gum tissue. Release pressure on the handle. This will squeeze the "baby tooth" - often popping the tooth into the gator's tail! If not, gently wiggle the GatorGripper® until the tooth is removed.

 

Safety

The GatorGripper® will only remove loose "baby-teeth." If the tooth is not ready to be removed, then the GatorGripper® will simply slide off of the tooth. In this situation try GatorGripper® another day.

 

Pain-free

 

One of the advantages of using the GatorGripper® is that it applies a "pressure numbness" when placed on the loose tooth so a child will have an experience that's virtually pain-free.
