August 22, 2017 is National Tooth Fairy Day. The tooth fairy is a mythical character who leaves a gift of some sort — though it is usually money — under a child’s pillow after they’ve lost a tooth. Many children experience pain or fear when losing a tooth, so the story about a tooth fairy who rewards them helps comfort them. Adults can celebrate by practicing good dental hygiene.
