    What is a fair price for a tooth?

    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?

      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. smile

      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.

    My children get a dollar a tooth. When I was a child, we were given a quarter. We did get fifty cents once or twice. My youngest child recently told me that her best friend at school was given five dollars for one tooth!

      Five dollars? My gosh, that is one valuable tooth. Thanks for your answer, MysticMoonlight.

    I'd say two dollars. A tooth isn't worth much - it's not like it's a holiday with presents. It's just supposed to be enough to make the kid smile for a minute. A dollar isn't enough even to buy a full size candy bar in some stores though, so I'd give them two.

      Thanks Amanda. I think two dollars is a fair price.
