My 6 yr old daughter lost her first front tooth3-4 months ago and it looks like it has come in, but it's covered in skin. She lost the second front tooth 2 weeks ago, and it's already visible, the actual tooth. Does she need to go to the dentist to have him cut the skin so it will fall back or wait till the tooth cuts through naturally. It literally looks like she has a tooth that is covered by her gums.
So the front tooth hasn't moved out after 3-4 months since the baby tooth came out? When was her last dental appointment?
It does seem to have taken longer than usual. The baby tooth normally won't come out unless the adult tooth pushes the baby tooth out, at which point, the adult tooth will start coming out from underneath the gums.
