Doctors Are Urging Parents Everywhere To Keep Their Kids’ Baby Teeth
Losing a first tooth is something of a rite of passage for kids everywhere. It’s a sign that you’re growing up and getting bigger. And if you’re like a lot of people, it also meant a little cash under your pillow in the morning from the “tooth fairy.”
And if you grew up to have kids of your own, maybe you remember taking on the time-honored role of tooth fairy and slipping some money under your kids’ pillows to celebrate this new stage in their lives. And the kids get to buy a little something for themselves.
But what do you do with the tooth after you swap it out for a dollar? Some people keep them as sentimental keepsakes, but many simply toss them. After all, what can a shed baby tooth really do for you? Well, as it turns out, quite a bit.
