Another question about kids losing teeth...

My dd has a lose tooth and one growing right behind it.  I'm making a dentist appt., but I was wondering if anyone has had experience with this.  Does the tooth eventually shift on it's own?

Happens all the time. Don't worry, it will shift on it's own. As to whether she needs braces or not, time will tell!

Some teeth shift on their own when they have enough space or when the baby tooth isn't interfering.

Once the loose tooth falls out it will shift into place.

Oh good. That's what I'm hoping.
