Certainly: By now, your daughter should have a longstanding relationship with a local dentist. If she hasn't been to a dentist, now is the time to start. Take her for an examination and evaluation.

Absolutely: If permanent tooth trying to erupt and baby tooth still hanging on may mean that your child has a crowded dentition. Please take her to see a Dentist-facial Growth and Development expert, an Orthodontic Specialist, for an Initial Examination (usually free).

See dentist: We have primary or baby teeth and our secondary or permanent teeth. No milk teeth. If new tooth is coming in or erupting and baby tooth still present or stuck, the baby tooth should be removed to allow permanent tooth to move into correct position. If not loose go to your dentist and have it extracted promptly.
