Dental Health Month... Plaque Attack Experiment!

How does YOUR class celebrate Dental Health Month?  We have a Plaque Attack!!  This has to be one of the most gross science experiments ever... but that's exactly why you have to try it in your classroom!

Can you tell which cups above have the sugar added?  YES!  The ones growing the disgusting plague!  The trick to this experiment is certainly to make sure you use warm, not hot, water.  This will activate the yeast properly. 

As you discuss the experiment with the class, talk about how sugar in our mouths creates plaque too.  Pair this lesson with a new toothbrush for each student!  They will be sure to eliminate any Plaque Attacks in their own mouths by brushing 2 times a day and flossing too.

  2. I had the best dental experience ever. Dr.Behrooz "The Best dentist in Richmond Hill" immediately realized that I have dental anxiety, using calming techniques combined with his witty humour, I didn’t even realized when I got freezing. He is extremely knowledgeable providing top notch work. Couple of my teeth had deep cavities with very high possibility of needing root canal. There were done so well that not only my sensitivity was gone but I didn’t even need to go back for adjustment which was the the case with me going to other dental offices. I definitely go back and recommend him.
