  • The baby tooth has gone inside the gum and this is called intrusion of tooth. In such cases, normally we just wait and watch so that the baby tooth itself comes out. But at the same time you have to visit dentist and get xray done to find out the position of intruded tooth. If it is affecting the permanent tooth bud then sometimes decision has to be taken to extract this tooth as it can damage the permanent tooth bud. So you can wait till Monday but donot delay and get an xray done.
