Normally, when your child loses a tooth, you inform them of the Tooth Fairy and all of the magical things that will happen if they put their tooth under the pillow. However, doctors say that you may not want to just toss the teeth because those teeth could actually be quite powerful…
#2 What Is It?
As it turns out, baby teeth are more precious than we think. In fact, these tiny teeth have stem cells in them! Why does that matter? Well, stem cells can create neurons, cartilage and even bones! How incredible is that?
#3 When it Matters
if your child were to ever develop a disease like leukemia or Hodgkin’s Disease, those baby teeth can actually save their life!
#4 Keep the Teeth
Instead of having bone marrow surgery to find stem cells, the baby teeth could actually help your child recover from such life-altering diseases.
#5 Send Them Out
There are even sites where you can send your child’s tooth for safe keeping. These places freezer the teeth to preserve its qualities and you MUST send them within 2 days of the tooth falling out.
