What Does The Tooth Fairy Do With Teeth?

Published date field

Folklore from many parts of the world tells us that when children lose a baby tooth, they should place it underneath their pillow and the Tooth Fairy will visit while they are asleep, to take that lost tooth and leave a small payment, especially if those teeth have been kept very clean and shiny.

So what might the Tooth Fairy do with these teeth?

  • Send them up into the night sky to become stars
  • Use as bricks for their white Tooth Fairy Castle
  • They grind the teeth to make magical fairy dust for all the fairies
  • Make necklaces for all the other fairies

Or perhaps it’s a secret so that the Tooth Fairy cannot tell us?
