baby tooth just hangin on

Ella is in the middle of teething, has lost and regrown all her top and bottom front teeth and is working hard on her molars - except for one upper front baby tooth. The adult teeth have grown in, this one little tooth is just is front of it. It is sort of loose but still fairly secured (I think, this of course assertained from the rare instance I can stick my hand in her mouth and wiggle her baby teeth!). My question is will it eventually fall out on their own, or is the fact that the adult teeth don't seem to be pushing it out mean that I will have to take her in and have it pulled?
Thanks~

Give her time to remove it herself, dental extractions are expensive and often unnecessary when it comes to teething pups. Those big front incisors will continue to 'come out' slowly, and eventually a combination of the front teeth pushing and her chewing on something will pop that sucker out. My pup has one on the top incisors too.

When my male was a pup. One of his baby canines was holding on for dear life. The adult tooth had already pushed in halfway. I was a little concerned that it might have to be extracted. One of my breeder friends mentioned to me to go get some chews (I believe I got a bully stick). So, I did and that night bam he lost it. Needless to say I was very happy and relieved that he had lost it. =)
