Q.

Loose teeth - 6yr old

Hi doc,

My daughter will be turning 6 at the end of this month &  the two teeth in the front of her lower jaw are loose. The one on the left is exceptionally loose but I have noticed that where the tooth is still attached to the gum there is some discolouration on the gum. Is this normal &  do I just leave it or does she need to see the dentist? I apologise if this seems like a lame question but she is my first child &  I am too old to remember what it was like when I was a child. :) I would appreciate your help.
Thank you,
Deedle
