How Much The Tooth Fairy Is Paying

LOST TEETH AREN'T EARNING AS MUCH MONEY AS THEY USED TO

(CNN) – Apparently the tooth fairy is pinching pennies.

The cost for a lost tooth is down 43-cents, according to the yearly survey from Delta Dental.

Researchers there say the average payout for a tooth is $3.70, while a first lost tooth is worth $4.96.

Last year a tooth went for $4.13, and the first lost tooth earned $4.50.

For some reason geography plays a factor for tooth worth.

Children in the west average about $4.13 per tooth while kids in the south get $3.91.

In the northeast a tooth can get you $3.75.

Meanwhile teeth in the Midwest earn the least a mere $2.97.
