In brief: Best answer

Let it get loose and the child can get it out unless it is over retained.
Than, if the child is seeing a dentist, they can let you know by x-ray and age if the dentist should help it out. 9 times out of 10, let it come out naturally. If the child wants to work it out, ice can be a help, because only tissue is keeping it in. Put the on the gum under the tooth, back and front, freezing the tissue.

In brief: See answer

The tooth can fall out on its own.
However, if it needs to be removed, your dentist can remove it. Usually it is a quick and easy procedure as long as the child is compliant. Consult with a good dentist to ensure that the teeth are erupting in the correct order with adequate space.
