When adults lose their teeth, it involves a trip to the dentist – usually Novocain injections – sometimes oral surgery. But when a child is getting ready to lose that first primary tooth, it’s nice to make it as easy as possible for the child.
From helping the child to wiggle the tooth free little by little – to pulling it for them, we always work on trying to find a way that keeps it from being a traumatic experience. Enter: the Tooth Fairy. This is what makes it worthwhile for the child to allow you to pull the tooth. When you think about the first grader grin with which we are so familiar; we (as adults) think that school picture is cute. But for the first grader, it is a big change – tooth fairy letters addressed to them can make all the difference in the world regarding how they handle the loss.
Tooth fairy letters are becoming more popular as parents and grandparents find them readily available on the internet. There are so many things in life that we are unable to always soften the blow – here is one area that we can lessen the stress in their young lives. They might not be able to pronounce words in the same way before the pulled tooth, but they will have a nice tooth fairy letter to remind them of the visit during the night of someone that left them a coin or dollar for that experience.
You can make it a more comfortable situation for your child. When that tooth is removed from under the pillow at night and a tooth fairy letter addressed personally to your child is left in its place, you’ll find that they are proud to hang it on the refrigerator or even have it on their wall in a nice frame.
Changes in our lives might be difficult, but for children it should be a minor bump in the road on their journey to adulthood.
