My 7 year old daughter has a loose tooth a very loose tooth. It's just hanging there. But looks like theres something holding it so it will not fall out. There is a tooth growing behind it and there looks like a little white bump underneath it. She cries and says it hurts. Should she be seen by a dentist or just let it fall out on its own

  • Normally the baby tooth sheds itself if it is very mobile and the adult tooth is coming in behind it. White bumb you are seeing is an adult tooth which is coming out. But if it is very painful and there is difficulty in eating and speaking then you can go to dentist and get it pulled out.
