What is the going rate for a tooth these days?

My oldest showed me has a loose tooth this morning. It is in the front. What do you all give for teeth these days?

  • My g-daughter just lost both bottom front teeth. We gave her 50cents each for them.

  • Funny, the kids in my daughters kindergarten class were just sharing what the tooth fairy brings them yesterday. It seems like the majority get a $1 per tooth, there was only one little girl who gets $5 per tooth (thankfully none of the other kids seemed to have caught on to that). We give our daughter a $1.

  • $1 per tooth, no matter which tooth it is. With 3 kids losing teeth at the same time it is expensive. Last summer, between the 3 of them, they lost like 6 teeth in 10 days.

  • Psh, I was lucky if I got a quarter per tooth! When my DD starts losing them we're going to give her $.50 per tooth, front or not.
