I’m not too shy to admit I’m more popular than ever these days. Throughout the majority of homes across America, my visit is welcomed with great joy.
When I pay a nighttime visit to a home, I’m doing so much more than just picking up a lost tooth. I’m honored to be part of a family tradition – a rite of passage that marks a child’s transition from childhood to adolescence.
To me, each baby tooth represents something special. The fact that most family photo albums feature a cherished photo of a child with his or her two front teeth missing suggests that parents feel the same way. For both young and young at heart, my legend stimulates the imagination and reminds people that it’s okay to believe in magic.
And I’m proud to say that since 1998, Delta Dental has encouraged parents to share my story as a way to promote good dental care to their children – including daily habits like brushing and flossing – because I use only the cleanest, healthiest teeth to build my pearly white palace.
The Tooth Fairy is pretty magical, but even she can't be everywhere at once. Luckily, she's just one of many fantastical beings around the world that collects baby teeth. Read all these legends below.
