Let’s Celebrate National Tooth Fairy Day
If you are thinking that there are no special days in the summer to celebrate other than Independence Day and Labor Day, you would be incorrect. There is a very special day that we can celebrate on August 22nd — National Tooth Fairy Day! Have you never heard about this special day before? Let us tell you more about how you can celebrate this dental holiday. Just as you may assume from the name, this holiday is a day that recognizes a young child losing their baby teeth as well as the special fairy who pays a visit to collect the teeth and leaves behind a special token or prize. National Tooth Fairy Day is actually celebrated twice a year. Two times a year symbolizes the number of times that children should receive a dental cleaning.
What to Know About Losing Baby Teeth
Parents are sometimes concerned about the timing of their children losing their baby teeth. Some parents worry that their children are losing their teeth too early, and others worry that they are losing them too late. Each child is unique when it comes to losing their first tooth; however, on average, it typically occurs between the ages of four and seven. Do not be alarmed if you see some blood when the tooth falls out. It might also appear that the adult teeth look crooked or out of place when coming in, and that is also normal. If your children are nervous about losing their teeth, you can look for some children’s books or short videos that explain more about the process.
If you have any questions about your child losing their teeth, their permanent teeth coming in, or you need to schedule an appointment for your loved one or yourself, be sure to contact our office, which is located in Spotswood, NJ. If your child loses their next tooth on August 22nd, we hope you take a few extra minutes to celebrate the Tooth Fairy and all her hard work!
