With a history dating back to 1920 in Australia, the Tooth Fairy is a childhood icon who traditionally collects the lost tooth and replaces it with a coin. Losing baby teeth and growing adult teeth is an opportunity for children to learn about good oral hygiene while being swept up with the sense of occasion.
