Contact your vet. ecco lost all of her teeth as the new ones came in except for one k9. The new k9 came in and pushed the baby tooth to the side. I gave it time to see if it would come out on its own. It didn't and it started to change colors (darkening) and possibly causing pain so we went to the vet and he popped it out.

My pup did this too. She had one stuck in there for about a month before if finally popped out. It'll get or look a little darker than the new tooth but it should fall out on it's own in a few days or wks.

Fanta still had baby canines in when the adult ones started coming in but after couple of weeks they fell out and luckily there were no issues.
there is a puppy on here (Ike) who had to wear "braces" when his adult teeth started growing. he is "good as new" now.

Yeah, I think it took Zeva about a month to lose that tooth and then it just popped out on the floor in front of me. I was relieved. it was her last one. Now she's got her huge spankin WHITE teeth

If the baby teeth are not coming out I would go to the vet. Retained baby teeth can cause the adult teeth to come in crooked or in the wrong place which could cause other problems with the mouth.
I had a foster dog once who had retained baby teeth (at about 8-10 months old) and in some places he had double teeth, in others the adult tooth had never come in and there was only a baby tooth in that spot...

I sure hope that since the end of April, the teeth issue has resolved.
