It's better to get it removed as the dentist will be in a better position to judge the case... Also not removing may lead to crowding of the front teeth ...needing space management treatment or premature extraction of other teeth ...hope this helps

It's best to take an X-Ray before you take any decision. But yes mostly you will have to remove it.

Please get an Xray done for the teeth....this will give u a clear picture of the amount of root left of the milk teeth before its completely resorbed by the pressure from permanent tooth.
