Science & Sensory: Dental

What not Brushing will get ya! added 2-22-98 Original Author Unknown

Need: two clear cups, 2 eggs, vinegar, cola, toothbrush, toothpaste, and a magnifying glass.

Soak an egg in a cup of cola and a second one in vinegar. Overnight the eggs will turn brown and the other one will lose it's shell. The cola one can show what happens if you don't brush (It will come off with a toothbrush and toothpaste) The second one shows that if the acid continually builds up in your mouth, it will decalcify, just like the egg.


Toothpaste added 2-22-98 Original Author Unknown

Have children make their own toothpaste. Provide each child with a spoon and a plastic bag. Place bowls of baking soda, salt and water in the middle of the table. Assist the children in placing 4 teaspoons of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of slat, and 1 teaspoon of water in individual plastic bags. Ad a drop of food flavoring extract, such as peppermint, mint or orange. The children can mix their own toothpaste.

(Just as a hint: it doesn't taste that great, regular toothpaste has a much better taste and consistency.)
