Loose baby tooth: Baby teeth usually get loose when the permanent tooth is ready to erupt, even if you don't see it. See your dentist for an exam, and x-rays to make sure all of the permanent teeth are in their proper place.

Yes...: Short and quick answer is yes. Permanent teeth sometimes experience difficulties cutting through the gums so it take a little longer but they do come. X-ray images can verify for you.
