The tooth fairy is a harmless tradition that can be used to encourage good oral hygiene and make a childhood rite of passage more fun:
– Children tend to start losing their baby teeth aged 5-7.
– When a tooth is lost, the tooth fairy leaves a small treat or payment; the healthier the tooth, the better the reward!
– Your dentist will be happy to show them how to brush their teeth to keep the tooth fairy happy.
“By the time a child’s full set of 32 adult teeth come in, he will have lost 20 baby teeth.”
