(WRGT) -- National Tooth Fairy Day is today and according to Visa's annual Tooth Fairy survey, American children are receiving an average of $3.40 per lost tooth this year. That's down 8 percent from last year but still up a hefty 31 percent from the $2.60 left in 2011.

For a full set of 20 baby teeth, American kids will be getting a slightly more modest, but still hefty, $68, down from $74 last year.

* Only 3.6 percent said that the Tooth Fairy left $20 or more, down from 6 percent in 2013.
