Hi kids, it's Henry the Hamster here to tell you about the Tooth Fairy!

The Tooth Fairy gives children a small amount of money or a present in exchange for a tooth when it falls out and the child places the tooth under their pillow at night before going to sleep.

Tooth Fairy's Dentist Friend

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that a child go to the dentist by age 1 or within six months after the first tooth erupts. Primary teeth typically begin growing in around 6 months of age.

A child's 20 baby teeth, which often come in by age 3, usually fall out in the same order they came in. That means the lower center teeth (lower center incisors) are usually the first to go, around age 6 or 7. The top center pair is next.

If you feel that it is loose enough, here's what you can have your child do to help remove the baby tooth: Have your child wiggle the tooth to make it looser. Do not pull or twist, simply move the tooth back and forth. Ask your child to move the tooth around to see if there is any pain when it's moved.

Wash your hands and wiggle the tooth back and forth with a clean tissue, making sure it's ready to come out. Apply pressure to the area with a clean gauze pad if there is any minor bleeding. Examine the gums to make sure no remains of the baby tooth are stuck in the area.

Post-Procedure Care for Your Child. After the tooth extraction, your kid's dentist will have your child bite on a piece of gauze until the bleeding stops and a blood clot forms. Ongoing bleeding will require changing the gauze every 20 minutes until the bleedings ceases.

Ideally, you should take your child to the dentist every six months. This may sound like a lot, but frequent visits are essential to the health of your child's developing teeth. Regular visits allow your child's dentist to detect early signs of dental disease and decay.
