Thank you for the query. After going through the brief, it appears that it's upper front tooth. It’s usually around 7-8 years the upper permanent front tooth [Central incisor] will come. Even though the milk has shed off earlier than usual; the permanent tooth does not come earlier. No need to worry as off now, you can wait for few more months. If necessary you can go for IOPA x-ray during regular dentist visit just to confirm the permanent tooth's presence.
I hope this clarifies you. If you have anything in mind I am available for further discussion.
With happy regards
