The results of the annual Tooth Fairy Poll from Delta Dental of Minnesota show that payments for teeth are up 44% in the state. The average gift to children is currently $2.10 per tooth here, up from $1.46 last year, and higher than the national average of $2.09.

Many consider the gift an indicator of the health of the economy, as it is a highly discretionary outlay. If so, the poll results fly in the face of other current indices.

When asked about the increase, the Tooth Fairy said it was part of a stimulus package.
