The Tooth Fairy is from Norway?

Wednesday, July 09, 2008 - 08:00 AM

Helene Meyer Tvinnereim and a team of Norwegian scientists are collecting milk teeth from 100,000 kids to create what may be the world's largest tooth bank. A dental biomaterials researcher at U Bergen in Norway, Tvinnereim seeks to find links between diseases and prenatal/childhood exposure to chemicals. The normally discarded teeth function as a 'black-box' recording of the chemicals children are exposed to, and have excellent shelf-life when dried and stored. Of course, this is a lot easier to do when you have a streamlined national health-care and record keeping system.

Do the parents collect their teeth and send it in, still acting as the toothfairy? Or is there a national toothfairy service that works? Do you think they will ever expand this out to include animal teeth? Or would it be useless to invest in the <a href="http://www.dentalfocus.biz">veterinary dental equipment</a> to do that?

So does this mean that the Tooth fairy no longer exists in Norway?? Very sad for all those norweigan children - but great for the easter bunny.
