Hi.. It's a most common problem with kids as they don't use their front teeth to bite harder foods. As a result milk teeth do not fall and permanent starts coming from back side of the milk teeth. Visit dentist and get them removed. It can be corrected following extraction. Regards

Hi... At this age it is common that milk (deciduous) teeth will be replaced by permanent teeth. And as you said its a loose tooth so its better to get it removed as soon as possible. The tooth erupting will take its own place. Thank you...
