The going rate for lost baby teeth had major gains in 2013.
The average gift from the tooth fairy climbed to $3.50 last year, up from $2.42 in 2012, according to Delta Dental's annual Original Tooth Fairy Poll.

Delta Dental's survey found that the tooth fairy was even more generous for first-time giving, leaving more money for the first tooth than for other teeth in 59% of homes. On average, the amount given for the first tooth was $4.51, a 29% increase from 2012.

Other findings from the poll, which surveyed more than 1,000 parents nationwide:

a. The tooth fairy visited 86% of U.S. homes with children who lost a tooth.
b. The tooth fairy left cash for kids in 98% of the homes she visited, while 2% of children received toys, gum, or other gifts.
c. The most common amount left under the pillow by the tooth fairy was $1 (42%).
d. 28% of kids received $5 or more for each lost tooth.

How often do you visit the dentist? A lot of patients only visit their dentists when they experience pain or other problems, but regular dental checkups should occur twice a year!
