Dental Hygiene

Science Fair Project/ A.S.A.P

01/24/2006

Question:

I am doing a science fair rpoject on which liquid stains your teeth the most, coffee, tea, or soda. I am not able to use real teeth to test my experiment, so can i use a piece of enamel ( like the kind you put in houses).

I just wanted to know if this would work. Can you please respond ASAP? Thank You! P.S: Can you give me some more ideas on science fair projects having to do with dentistry? ( I can`t use commercial things like which toothpaste works the best).

Answer:

I don't think paint enamel will work. Other projects have used egg shells.
