How to Help Your Child Prep for the First Lost Tooth

August can be a big time of the year for children going back to school but its also a big time of year for the Tooth Fairy! National Tooth Fairy Day is on August 22, and to celebrate, you can prep your little ones for losing their baby teeth. Most kids lose their first baby tooth around the age of 6,1 so it could easily happen at school (or daycare) when youre not around to help. Here are a few items you might want to discuss with your child: Losing baby teeth is part of growing up and doesnt hurt. When a tooth naturally falls out, it might tingle or feel different than normal. But theres no pain and theres no reason to be scared.2 There may be bleeding. Even though losing a tooth doesnt hurt, there could be a bit of blood on the gums and tooth. A quick rinse with some water is all thats needed.2 A teacher or helper can store the tooth. Be sure to let your child know to alert a teacher or helper when the tooth comes out. This adult can help your child clean up and store the lost tooth in a cup, envelope or baggie to bring home. Swallowing a tooth is OK. Its not uncommon for a tooth to accidentally get swallowed, especially if it comes loose while eating. Assure your child that swallowing a tooth is not a big deal. The Tooth Fairy knows that the tooth fell out its part of her magic and she will still stop by for a visit.2
