 Do you know how much the Tooth Fairy gives for a baby tooth? Must it be money? What to do once your child loses a baby tooth?

MyBracesClinic is the official  Liaison Officer for the World Federation of Tooth Fairies, assisting to disseminate vital information regarding the protocol to follow once a baby tooth is on hand (literally).

How to Clean a Baby Tooth for Tooth Fairy Collection:

Tooth Fairies are very particular with hygiene and all baby teeth on hand needs a little tender loving processing before Tooth Fairy Collection.

Step 1: Clean the baby tooth with water and a little soap/ Jif cleaner (or equivalent) over the sink and REMEMBER to cover the drain of the sink (accidents can happen with slippery baby teeth!). Aim to remove blood stains, food debris, plaque and stains.

Step 2 (optional):  Soak in undiluted home cleaning bleach for ~10-15minutes.

Step 3: Dry it with tissue.

Step 4: Wrap in tissue paper and place under the pillow, just under the corner of the pillow.

We have gotten feedback that placing the baby tooth right in the middle of the pillow makes it harder to remove the treasure at night without waking the brave little donor sleeping right over it.

Let’s do it Together!

It is great fun and exciting for your child to participate in prepping the baby tooth for Tooth Fairy Collection.

This is also the best time to talk to your child about the next important topic: Tooth Fairy Valuation of Baby Teeth.

Tooth Fairy Valuation of Baby Teeth

World Federation of Tooth Fairies is a large organization comprising of Tooth Fairies from different countries. As such, their styles of delivery and languages can be different but one thing remains the same:

Tooth Fairies pick up clean baby teeth that have been lost, sprinkle them with Fairy Dust and get them ready to be placed in new babies yet to be born.

In exchange, Tooth Fairies leave behind a token of Thank you which can range from money to small gifts.
