Double tooth?

I dont know if the topic is right... Anyway my problem is that I have a fully grown in tooth that has pushed the other 'baby tooth' to the side. Usually when this happens the other tooth falls out right? thats what my dentist said but it has been at least half a year and is not budging. Im soon to be 15 with Crohn's disease and 2 years slower bone growth. I also have gingavitice I think... I do know I need to brush more so yeah
Thanks for the help <3

If its not falling out on its own, you may want to go back to your dentist and get it removed.  Can you wiggle it?  Is it loose at all?

I can wiggle it a bit but then I feel it rubbing against the other tooth so I stop

Its hard for me to say but the other tooth is most likely the adult one and is going to be stable.  Its hard to pull a tooth out that's healthy and stable.  You can try to loosen the other one gently.  If not, a dentist may need to remove it if you can't.  Or you can try to eat an apple or something on it and see if it knocks it loose.
