Hey moms, have you heard the latest news about the Tooth Fairy’s inflation? According to a new survey by Delta Dental, the average value of a single lost tooth has increased 16% from $5.36 to $6.23! That’s right, even the Tooth Fairy can’t escape inflation.
At this rate, in 2048, the Tooth Fairy would be leaving a whopping $30 under the pillow for a single tooth.
“Delta Dental has been analyzing the Tooth Fairy’s U.S. annual giving trends for a quarter century, highlighting the role of good oral health care habits for children,” said Gabriella Ferroni, Senior Director, Strategic Communications, Delta Dental Plans Association. “We know this time-honored tradition will continue to bring great joy to homes across the country, and we look forward to seeing how the Tooth Fairy’s giving changes over the next 25 years. Given the projection, it would be in the Tooth Fairy’s best interest to invest in a larger purse.”
But, as much as we all love a little extra cash under our pillows, let’s not forget about the importance of good oral health. Encouraging our children to take care of their teeth and gums should be a top priority. Not only will it prevent tooth decay and other dental problems, but it will also save us from expensive dental bills in the long run.
And speaking of dental care, let me introduce you to our trusted pediatric dentist, Dr. Adam Pollock. Dr. Pollock has a special way with kids, making them feel comfortable and at ease during their dental visits. He provides a thorough oral inspection to determine your child’s oral health, and if any further dental measures are necessary.
