Students in Mrs. Washington's class have been discussing dental health awareness week. Today we specifically looked at different liquids and how they affect our teeth, after 24 hours without brushing. We used 6 boiled eggs and soaked them overnight in 6 different liquids. We then used a toothbrush and toothpaste to see which liquids removed stains. We also observed which liquids appeared to wear away the shell of the egg. We then ranked the liquids and determined which were the healthiest and least healthiest.
