When my kids were little the Tooth Faerie paid one dollar for each tooth they lost. When I was a child, the Tooth Faerie paid a nickel for each tooth. I wonder what the value of a child's lost tooth is now?

Hmmmm ... I understand the inflation , but what doe s stem cells have to do with it? LOL
well, some times stem cells can be tapped from residual tissue in the primary tooth, and the stem cell guys are for ever sourcing them for research purpose, of course they are not as effecient as placental cells or menstrual one. :)
Ah ! Now I understand. I did not know they can tap teeth for research purposes like they do with stem cells. This is very interesting, parwatisingari. Thank you for taking the time to explain that to me.
Thanks Amanda. I think two dollars is a fair price.
Five dollars? My gosh, that is one valuable tooth. Thanks for your answer, MysticMoonlight.
