Plaque Attack!

Our Science topic this term is the Human Digestive system. We have been looking at the types of teeth both humans and animals have and their functions. As well as this, to help with our own oral hygiene, we have also been creating booklets about how to care for your teeth. In order to write effectively about our own experiences, we decided to use disclosing tablets, which showed us if we had any plaque on our teeth. This helped us to identify if we were missing any areas when brushing.

After this, we observed the areas where we could see the dye highlighting the plaque and this helped us to give handy tips on how to brush more effectively. 
Here is some of the advice given:

Cavell - 4M, " Ismaeel needs to brush nearer the gum line because this is where the darker patches are, so maybe he could lift his top lip up so his teeth are fully visible."

Tiffany - 4RG, " Uwais needs to try and brush between the gaps in his teeth better as I could see a bit of plaque that had built up. He could try using dental floss to improve his teeth cleaning routine."

A very memorable and visual way to investigate dental hygiene with some very interesting purple images! Well done, Year 4.
