When young children start to feel the ache and wiggle of a loose tooth, their parents might tell them about the Tooth Fairy. As we all know the Tooth Fairy visits children and leaves behind a little bit of money in exchange for their baby teeth. February 28th is National Tooth Fairy Day, a day set aside to celebrate the fantasy creature that helps children grow up. Of course, not everyone who might lose a tooth is a child. In this case, Dr. Will Akin and the care team at Nashville Periodontal Group work together with the Tooth Fairy to provide dental implants in Brentwood, TN. This is a great way to replace missing teeth at any age.

Here are a few suggestions you can try:
