Tooth fairy payments have seen a whopping 43% increase over recent years! Spending nearly £24 million on our children’s pearly whites the average payment for a milk tooth is now £1.58.
The tooth fairy has her work cut out with roughly 15million baby teeth falling out every year! She has spent an extra £16.5million on baby teeth in the last 7 years.
However, dentists want to reiterate the importance of keeping baby teeth healthy and allowing them to fall out naturally. Adults oral health is closely linked to how you look after your teeth as a child. Lots of people think that milk teeth don’t need to be as healthy as adult teeth because they fall out but this is not true.
