Early loss of primary tooth may delay eruption of the permanent successor tooth. You should visit a pediatric dentist and get an x-ray done for better understanding of the situation. An x-ray will lead to a definitive diagnosis. The time frame for eruption of upper incisor is 7-8 years. In case the permanent tooth is about to erupt as seen on x-ray, no action would be needed from the doctor.

Normally upper front permanent tooth erupts 6yrs to 8 yrs of age. Its time for your child to get the upper front teeth. Still you can wait for another 6 months as there are variations in eruption pattern from child to child. If you are very particular , then go to a dentist and  take xray and see how far the upper tooth bud have developed inside the bones.

Hi. Sometimes when an injury makes the milk tooth fall very early, the next permanent tooth eruption gets delayed from its original time. Also, the injury might cause the permanent tooth to change its position and hence one may require it to be surgically/orthodontically brought in its place. You can wait for now. If the tooth doesn't come out for another 6-7 months, I would advice you to visit an orthodontist and get an X ray done of that area, and get it evaluated.
Next Steps
wait and watch for another 6-7 months.
