HELP: Is there a Barucha for a first lost tooth?

My elder son, Reid who is 6 1/2 going on 16, had his first tooth fall out. In our home, the Tooth Fairy is in the same book as Santa, Easter Bunny and other mythical features. After the tooth came out, I asked Reid- What do you know about the Tooth Fairy. "It is just a story." I said, "Fine, how much do you think the tooth is worth?"
All that being said, I would love to know if there is a specific Barucha to recite on such an occasion. There seems to be one for everythign else! (This occurred shortyly after same son mentioned that services were not nearly as important as baseball- so we need to instill some spirituality into the home).

Thanks for your help!

Well, I went directly to my source..aka Rabbi. She was only able to find one for first tooth coming in but she also said.."f women could make up their own prayers once upon a time, there's no reason she can't make up a prayer for her little boy herself! It doesn't have to be fancy or poetic or long-- just from her heart :)" She found the first toth reference in a tehine. Hope this helps you :)
