  • Normally by the age 15 all the baby teeth are gone and in your case if the adult tooth has already erupted that means the baby teeth roots are already resorbed. If a part of it is stuck in the gum then you have to get it pulled out by the dentist otherwise it will cause the hindrance for the proper positioning of the adult tooth. When the baby teeth comes out normally there is no hole but red soft tissue lump as the roots are already resobed and the So you should not worry about theat amd maintain very good oral hygeine so that the area does not get infected.For more info on oral hygiene you can read this article....
