Dentistry advice?

Hello. Dd1 is 5.5. First baby tooth fell out three weeks ago and within days the tip of the adult tooth appeared. However, her second adult tooth is poking through but I'd a substantial distance behind the baby tooth, which is still in place, although a Little wobbly. Booked dentist appointment for next week but slightly concerned at the manner in which the tooth is so far back. Any thoughts anyone?

Very normal, happened to my dd with nearly every tooth, we also took her to the dentist and she said very normal sees it all the time and the teeth sort themselves out.

Very common - happened to both my sons, teeth are quite well aligned now that the milk teeth have fallen out grin

Thanks! Ever so slightly neurotic about my children's teeth since I hate my own.
