Five days after Amara got out of school for summer vacation she had oral surgery and had 11 teeth extracted. Eleven! Extracted sounds so much better than pulled! Her dentist was very concerned that her baby teeth just weren’t coming out fast enough and her permanent teeth were trying to come through and were looking for a place to go!
Amara came through it all like a champ and her dentist certainly seems to have been right as you could see new teeth in her gums that very same day. Now they are coming up like crazy!
But the best part of this story is the amazing personal letter that Amara got from the Tooth Fairy. In the past the Tooth Fairy has always brought Amara $5 for a tooth but she had no idea what he might bring her for all of these. The next morning she awoke to find the teeth, $30 and the following letter under her pillow.
I regret to inform you that your tooth donation has exceeded the Tooth Fairy Labor Accord, which limits the number of teeth collected from exceeding six. While your offer of eleven teeth is humbling, I simply cannot take that many without violating the accord. In lieu of the additional compensation, I have left your teeth for you to keep as a souvenir. I did however take a picture for the archives. Eleven teeth at once. Wow. I am very impressed.
Best luck and good tooth health,
Best letter ever from the Tooth Fairy!
