If you want your child to enjoy losing their little baby teeth, then our dentist, Dr. Matt Swan, encourages you to introduce the Tooth Fairy to them! The Tooth Fairy is a mythical creature that visits children all around the world when they lose their teeth. She does her best to make losing baby teeth a fun and enjoyable experience. When telling your child about her, you can share the following Tooth Fairy details:
-The Tooth Fairy started visiting children many years back in Europe. The kids loved her so much! In fact, they loved her so much that they started telling their friends and family about her. Before long, the kids around the world knew all about her. Now she makes even longer trips to visit kids in different cities, states and countries!
-The Tooth Fairy visits kids who lose their baby teeth. Typically, kids place their teeth under their pillows. But sometimes they place the teeth in little boxes or pockets next to their bed to make the Tooth Fairy’s job a little easier.
-During the Tooth Fairy’s visits, she takes the little tooth and replaces it with a treasure, like money or trinkets.
-The Tooth Fairy is very quiet because she can’t be caught. She also only visits kids when they’re fast asleep!
-The Tooth Fairy loves every child she visits very much. Sometimes she even gives a hug or kiss goodnight!
-You can help the Tooth Fairy by making sure the teeth are healthy and strong. This means you need to take good care of your chompers when they are still in the mouth. You can also help the Tooth Fairy by cleaning the tooth before placing it under your pillow.
