Can give Dr. a call: Her doctor or dentist may just say "time will tell." The baby teeth help with eating, teeth development, and jaw development, but they are temporary teeth. A parent can ask her doctor or dentist if anything needs to be done, but it would not be surprising if they say there is nothing to be done.

Dental appt: You should see a Pediatric Dentist right away. The root may be affected, but the dentist can perform imaging to determine if there is a risk to the health of the tooth.
