This is not a very uncommon finding and should not worry you..... if the old milk tooth does not shed in the next few weeks, you should visit a dentist and get it removed so that the erupting permanent tooth can erupt in line..... Regards.....

Dear Practo User, The problem your child is facing is very common nowadays. Reason being intake of soft food items. Kindly encourage your kid to have apple or guava.
Next Steps
Wait for few days and see if the milk tooth start moving. If not then kindly visit a dentist nearby. Regards Dr Ankit Jain Arham Dental Care Delhi

If milk tooth don't falls within next few days. ..Visit nearby dentist .since if doesn't fall, the permanent tooth may erupt at unusual place, ,which may lead to crowding of teeth. ..

This is very normal; the more the permenant tooth will come out ; it will push out the milk tooth and which will fall off soon. Don't worry at all.
