but no other adult teeth have arrived, she hasn't even got a single wobbly yet. I know you will probably all be giggling at the inept mum by now but please reassure me this is nothing to worry about

Don't worry - these are the six-year molars - quite normal.
This shows when all the teeth change.

Thank you, I feel a bit silly now

Don't feel silly - one of the great things about MN is that you can ask about little things like that without having to reveal your ignorance to RL friends grin

Absolutely, I was about to whizz her straight to the dentist tomorrow, I don't think I would have lived with the embarassment

I read 'black' tooth and was watching the tooth lifecycle show avidly for the black teeth blush

Who's silly now???
