Q.

Baby Teeth not loose yet

My daughter's first teeth do not come loose before the permanent teeth start growing. Do I need to see a dentist or is there something I can do in the meantime. I do have a medical aid, but they only pay a small portion of dental care. So I can only go if it is a major problem? Is this a major problem?

It is best to see a dentist to prevent the permanent teeth from growing in the incorrect position due to the baby teeth still being in the mouth
