My 5-month-old pug has been losing teeth like crazy! He is very proud of it, he'll lose one and then bring it to me to show me. I just give him a towel, t-shirt, or rope that I have rolled up and gotten wet then frozen. There are also lots of teething-specific toys out there that you can toss in the freezer. The cold soothes his gums and the chewing helps knock those teeth loose!

Puppies teeth get to a point where they are going to fall out I see no issue with giving assistance once they reach a certain point, you can pluck them of or give some brisket bones which is natures way of assisting baby teeth removal. Remember no cooked bones

Dogs constantly loose teeth as puppies- my 2 mutts lost teeth without us knowing. Don't pull it- it'll fall out, and later you'll probably find it on the floor. If your dog eats the tooth, he/she might start being aggressive or choking- bring him/her to the vet immediately.

well guardians answer is better than my idea. BUT. I was gonna say that dogs have been loosing teeth for how many hundreds of years? I'd say just treat him like normal and let him lose it.
