The children (and grown ups!) had a fun and enjoyable time examining their teeth this afternoon.
We used the timer to brush our teeth for a full two minutes using fluoride toothpaste. Everyone managed to keep going!Then it was time for the disclosing tablets. We chewed the tablets until they dissolved and then used the mirrors to examine the results. We discussed the reasons for the purple areas and decided these would be the areas we would focus our brushing on over the coming days.The children absolutely loved the experiment and examining one another's teeth. A very fun but equally informative exploration of our oral health.
