My 6 year old sons front bottom tooth fell out but before it fell out the other tooth had grown through behind crooked. Now the other tooth is loose but the other tooth has fully grown behind and it's also crooked. What I'm wondering should I see a dentist and get the tooth pulled or wait till it falls out? and what I should do about the crooked teeth?

  • If the adult tooth comes out behind the baby tooth and baby tooth do not fall then the baby tooth is called the retained tooth. These retained teeth are to be pulled out. Do not wait for the baby tooth to fall out its self. See your dentist and get te retained baby tooth pulled out. At this stage you can not do any thing about the crooked teeth. Normally with the tongue pressure they come to there normal position. For more info on children dentistry you can visit the following
