Not Podiatry: This needs to be directed to dentistry.

Usually quickly: It depends on the situation. Some teeth are lost and the permanent one doesn't appear for years, usually it is right there as soon as the baby tooth falls out. A check up with an orthodontist or pediatric dentist can easily identify if there is a problem.
