The Tooth Fairy

The-Tooth-Fairy

The tooth fairy is a fantasy character common in English speaking countries.  Children are told that when their teeth fall out, if placed under their pillow, the tooth fairy will come and replace the tooth with money.  Most children are intrigued by this tale but eventually discover that the tooth fairy is in fact their parents.  Author Vicky Lansky advises parents to tell their children that the tooth fairy pays more for a perfect tooth than a decayed one. This promotes better home oral hygiene. Studies have shown that on average, the tooth fairy will bring children $2.60 per tooth. So, parents, please remember that your child has 20 teeth to lose!
