Tara,

You're not being paranoid. I would be concerned that the h would cause problems with teeth forming and, even more seriously, affect her eating.
I would insist on seeing a specialist. Most of us get the 'wait and see'. In some cases it might be warranted, but your case sounds serious. When a hemangioma impedes eating that can be very serious. A ped. derm. will probably be a good first step, but I would think you'll need to find a surgeon.
Like Corinne said, go with your instinct. It sounds like you're concerned for a good reason.

Good luck,
