When your child is 6 or 7 years old, they will start losing their baby teeth. This is necessary because their permanent teeth will start to move into place. This might make your child a little nervous and scared, but there is nothing for them to worry about. This is a natural occurrence and they will be just fine. To help them feel better about losing their teeth, feel free to tell them about the Tooth Fairy.

The Tooth Fairy is a kind, sweet, and gentle character who rewards children when they lose their teeth. When a tooth is lost, your child should clean it, put it in a plastic bag or a little container, and put it under their pillow. As they sleep, the Tooth Fairy will visit your child, take the tooth, and replace it with something special. This might be money, a treat, or even a toy. This helps children come to terms with losing their baby teeth.
