Losing your beautiful baby teeth is a very exciting time in any child’s life and as a tooth fairy, I’m so excited to collect those teeth. I have had so much fun receiving and reading your letters and the letters of children from around the world. I would like to answer some questions that I get asked a lot.

What does the Tooth Fairy do with all of the teeth?
I bet you want to know why I collect children’s teeth, and maybe you’ve come up with a few theories. We tooth fairies are busy building a beautiful, white castle for our queen. Only the best-cared-for teeth can be used for this fancy castle. Teeth that weren’t cleaned or cared for well are ground up and used for paving stones. That’s why I leave more money for clean teeth with no cavities than for other teeth. If you want a bonus reward for your next tooth, make sure you are brushing and flossing every day so you can earn it.

Are there lots of tooth fairies or just one?
There are many tooth fairies just like me. We work together to collect the teeth of children everywhere and to reward them for well-cared-for teeth. Each tooth fairy does things a little differently, which is why I write to the children I serve and other tooth fairies don’t.

How can I have healthy teeth?
We tooth fairies stress how important it is to brush your teeth every day. Flossing is also important. If you have trouble cleaning your teeth, have your mom or dad help you. Also, visit our dentist often so that he can help you care for your teeth.
