How to Properly Celebrate Tooth Fairy Day: Tips From OG Dental

Happy Tooth Fairy Day! Did you know that every year on the 28th of February we celebrate the enchanted creature that makes children excited to lose their teeth? Here at OG Dental, we want to take this opportunity to not only celebrate the Tooth Fairy but also provide Denver CO dental patients with some tips on how to properly celebrate the day and promote good oral health. So, let's get started!

Teach Children About Proper Oral Care

Losing baby teeth is a right of passage for children and what better day to incorporate a lesson on oral health and dental care than Tooth Fairy Day? It's important to teach children proper brushing, flossing, and overall dental hygiene practices so that those healthy baby teeth can grow and stay strong until they're ready to be replaced by adult teeth. Take this opportunity to talk about the importance of visiting the dentist regularly as well.

Make Losing a Tooth Special

Losing a tooth can be scary for some children but it can also be an exciting moment. Encourage your child to write a letter or draw a picture for the Tooth Fairy and place it under their pillow with their lost tooth. Incorporate healthy treats, such as fruits or vegetables, into their celebrations and make them feel special for their milestone.

Start a Tradition

Tooth Fairy Day is a perfect opportunity to start a family tradition that will last for generations. One idea is to take a toothbrush and gently brush the Tooth Fairy's teeth while your child is asleep and leave a personalized note from the Tooth Fairy as a thank you. You can also create a Tooth Fairy journal where your child can document their tooth loss experience. The possibilities are endless!

Consider a Dental Cleaning

Tooth Fairy Day isn't just for celebrating lost teeth and reminding children of proper oral hygiene practices, it's also a reminder for adults to schedule their next dental cleaning. Take this opportunity to schedule you and your family's regular cleanings and check-ins with your dentist. It's important to ensure that your dental health is up to par and prevent any dental problems before they start.

Donate to Charity

Tooth Fairy Day is a great opportunity to give back to those in need. Consider donating to organizations that provide dental care and services to underprivileged children and families. Every donation counts and it's a great way to celebrate the Tooth Fairy while helping others in need.
