A tooth walked into a bar, then soaked himself in a glass of coke.

Posted Feb 17 2010 10:37am

We decided to do a science experiment at our house.  I was hoping by pouring some cola onto a tooth, that we would see the tooth disintegrate.  And maybe it would if we left it there for a very long time.  But after two weeks,  the teeth don’t disappear.  However, the results in my mind were equally disturbing:

A friend (Doreen) picked up the following handouts from her dentist.  You will have to click on the images to see it full size, but basically, image #1 indicates enamel being destroyed after 14 days of exposure to various drinks.  Image #2 shows the pH value for different candies, as compared to battery acid).  Good talking points to have with your children tonight!
