Being a daughter of a late dentist/orthodontist/cosmetic surgeon, I wasn’t satisfied with the results I came across when I searched for a “tooth fairy pillow.” Sure there were some cute ideas out there, but none of them seemed “right” to me. So believe it or not, I actually broke out my dental models from college, as well as a few anatomical online searches, and decided to design an anatomically correct mandible 2nd molar/the 2nd molar on your lower jaw.

You may ask why that particular one, or you may simply not care; but the best way to answer this is because it was the easiest to design. This is because all maxillary (upper) molars have 3 roots, and all mandible (lower) molars have 2 roots. I then nixed out the 1st molar because it has an extra cusp (bump) then the rest, and who would want an odd number of cusps (bumps)? So I had to logically go with 4 cusps (bumps) and only 2 roots to make it easier to crochet in almost one piece the entire time. I hope you enjoy the extra work that went into designing an anatomical correct tooth; I know my dad is probably smiling down from heaven at my new creation – he always loved to see what I created with my hands; whether it was artwork of some kind, wood burning, sculptures, fiber work, or dental work.

Happy Hooking!
