The brave boy who pulled out his first baby tooth using a remote controlled monster truck and some dental floss

By Daily Mail Reporter

It was a day of firsts for little Easton Jarrett. After getting home from his first day of first grade he lost his first tooth.

But rather than munching into an apple or waiting till it finally fell out, the brave youngster decided to take affirmative action and pull out the wobbling front tooth himself...using a mini monster truck and some dental floss.  

Shunning the sure-fire method of a swift yank, Easton instead let his parents tie some floss to the pesky tooth then attach the line to his remote controlled monster truck.

Here goes! After getting home from his first day of first grade, Easton let his parents tie some floss to his wobbly baby tooth and then attach the line to his remote controlled monster truck....

....after the floss is tied to the truck, Easton's parents handed him the controls...

The boy’s proud parents captured the momentous occasion on film and promptly posted the footage on YouTube.

 

They wrote beneath the video: 'Easton losing his 1st tooth on his 1st day of 1st grade. We tied some dental floss to the back of a R/C monster truck and let Easton have the controls.'

In the one-minute video Easton’s parents guiding him through how to get the wiggly baby tooth out.

Clutching the truck’s remote control, Easton confirms he is ready and his father begins the count-down: ‘On your mark, get set….go.’

Easton unflinchingly sends the car roaring away from him and out flies his tooth. After an exclamatory yelp, Easton excitedly runs to retrieve the tooth and proudly holds it up to the camera.  

‘It’s kind of bleeding’ Easton says as he shows off his new smile. No doubt the tooth fairy gave a bonus for bravery after that performance.

That's nothing. Dad once tried yanking one of mine out by tying it up to our station-wagon bumper! I'll never forget the wrenching sound of tearing metal as he floored that old Chevy. I still have the bumper.
