This week, we have been doing an investigation by looking at the effect that different liquids have on the enamel on our teeth.
We used eggs to represent our teeth. We placed hollowed eggs in water, coke, apple juice and sugar free squash (diluted to the instructions on the bottle).
We then left them for one week.
These are the results:
We found out that...
Water is the best to drink! It helps our bodies, is proven to help the brain learn new concepts and has no negative effects upon our teeth.
Coke (fizzy drink) is very bad for our teeth and also very bad for our health as the caffeine can also affect our sleep patterns.
Fruit Juice may be good for our bodies but contains a lot of natural sugars and so should not be a regular drink. Also, when we drink fruit juice, we should drink water afterwards or brush our teeth to remove the fruit juice acid.
Squash (even diluted and sugar-free) is very dangerous for our teeth. Although it is advertised as sugar-free, it contains sweetners and other chemicals that are just as harmful to our teeth.
