Re: what do you do with your kids' teeth after they fall out?

I keep them and put them in their baby box. I don't know why I do it but I guess it is one of the things I'm sentimental about.

I still have one tooth. It's root grew a lot and I had it removed in emergency surgery when I was 4. I still have it. And look at it. Weird.

we kept most of them. the kids love it!! they take them out and look at them. its basically like a class in school. you learn about teeth, roots, cavities and fillings. i still have a couple of mine from 30 yrs ago LOL

My mom kept all of ours and as a young teen I found them in a little box. I thought it was super creepy. (I know that's not how all kids feel, it was just my reaction) I have zero intention of keeping any teeth for my kids. I just can't see their value.
I did have two molars pulled at 12 years old and kept those for a little while because it was kind of cool to see that whole root, but baby teeth aren't as whole by the time they fall out.

Re: what do you do with your kids' teeth after they fall out?

The first one I put in an envelope and dated it and put in their baby box. The rest are sitting in a tiny tupperware container high up in my closet because I can't bring myself to throw them out but don't kmow what to do with them. I'm not sure what I'll do with then someday. The container is just buying me time to decide.
