Apparently, the tooth fair is pinching pennies.
The cost for a lost tooth is down 43 cents, according to the yerly survey from Delta Dental.
Researchers there say the average payout for a tooth $3.70 while a first tooth is worth $4.96.
Last year a tooth went for $4.13 and the first lost tooth went for $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, while in the northeast a tooth can get you $3.75
Meanwhile, teeth in the Midwest earn the least, a mere $2.97.
