If you’re interested in making the process of losing baby teeth fun for your child, our dentist, Dr. Destiny Rockwood, is happy to hear it! The more fun you make it, the smoother the process will be for both you and your child. It can even help your child have a more positive experience, which can help them feel more comfortable with treatment in the dental chair. To help make the tooth loss process more fun for your child, our dentist encourages you to do the following things:
-Introduce them to the Tooth Fairy! The Tooth Fairy visits your child when they lose one or more teeth. When they place the tooth under the pillow, she visits them, takes the tooth and replaces the tooth with a treasure, like money or trinkets!
-Help your child build a cute little box or pillow pocket to keep their lost tooth in. These can keep the teeth safe until the Tooth Fairy visits!
-Help your child make a sign that tells the Tooth Fairy they have a tooth for her. Hang the sign on the bedroom door or window. You can also spread glitter on the front porch or outside the window seal to let the Tooth Fairy know you’re ready.
-Leave a sign that the Tooth Fairy visited. You can leave a little thank you note encouraging your child to keep brushing. You can leave little glittery footsteps on the window seal showing she was there. You can even leave a little Tooth Fairy receipt that states how many teeth were taken and what was paid for them!
