Fluoride for Strong Teeth
Supplies and Preparation
- Print cutouts of “Fluoride for Healthy Teeth”
- Teeth cut from white card stock or egg cartons.
- Small paint brushes.
- Clear liquid glue.
Encourage children paint a thick amount of “fluoride” (glue) on some “teeth” and not on others. The glue will dry hard and shiny.
Check the next day to see which teeth are strong and protected (hard and shiny) from the cavity germs.
Explain to children that the dentist may paint fluoride on their teeth. This helps teeth stay strong and healthy.
