Q.

1st front teeth

My daughter is 6 and her two front teeth are receeding into her gums. Her permanent teeth are starting to come through now too. Should we have baby teeth pulled as they are also a little rotten or will they eventually fall out?
Thank you

if the permanent teeth are starting to show and the baby teeth have not fallen out yet, it is best to have them extracted
