"The tooth fairy can deliver a powerful lesson about finances from an early age and be a great way to make losing teeth less scary for kids," said Jennifer Elliott, vice president of marketing for Delta Dental, in a statement.
Delta Dental's survey found that the Tooth Fairy visits 86 percent of homes with children in the United States. Of those households, 93 percent received a monetary gift.
Those who didn't find cash under their pillows likely received toothbrushes, toothpaste or floss, according to Delta Dental. All three items were more frequently given in 2015 than the year before.
Not all teeth are worth the same, however. Children in the Midwest, on average, received $2 less per tooth than their counterparts in the Northeast.
The tooth fairy survey was conducted between Dec. 16, 2015, and Jan. 14, 2016, and surveyed 1,307 parents of children ages 6 to 12.
