Dr. Hall –
My 6 year old has his second set of teeth that have come up but the baby teeth are still there and have not loosened up. Should I wait till they do loosen up or should he have them removed? I have not taken him to the dentist because I thought they would fall out on their own. Help what should I do???

If you can see the permanent teeth coming in but the baby teeth haven’t fallen out, and you can’t jiggle them out yourself, I’d take your son to a dentist and have the dentist take them out. The baby teeth can deflect the permanent teeth if they’re not coming out the way they should.
