Let’s Celebrate National Tooth Fairy Day!
There are some special days that we celebrate in the month of February, such as Valentine’s Day and Presidents’ Day. You may be surprised to learn there is another important day that can be celebrated during this month, National Tooth Fairy Day! If you are unfamiliar with this special day, it is celebrated on February 28th. National Tooth Fairy Day is actually celebrated twice a year, and the other day to celebrate is August 22nd. We celebrate this special day twice a year to signify that your child should be visiting the dentist every six months for a hygiene examination. National Tooth Fairy Day is also a special way to celebrate a young child losing their baby teeth and the cute little fairy who comes and collects all of the lost teeth.
What to Know About Losing Baby Teeth
We sometimes get calls from parents who are concerned about their child losing their baby teeth, so we want to share some important information about this momentous occasion. Each child is unique when they lose 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. The permanent tooth may or may not be visible. When the permanent tooth begins to grow in, it may seem crooked or in the wrong placement, but do not worry, as it will typically move into a better placement within a few weeks.
If you are in Silverdale, WA or the surrounding area, and you have questions about your child losing their teeth or their permanent teeth coming in, or you need to schedule an appointment for your loved one or yourself, be sure to contact our office. If your child loses their next tooth on February 28th, we hope you take a few extra minutes to celebrate the Tooth Fairy and all her hard work!
