Teeth and Coke

The tooth from home.

What we did
We decided to put a tooth in coke because we wanted to see  what would happen. (Laure)

I think it will go a bit stained and get holes in it and it will  dissolve. (Toby)
It will start to go black and rot then dissolve. (Ali)
I think it will disappear. (Jessie)
I think it will go rotten and black and then it will start to dissolve and then it will start to go to liquid. (Poon)
I think that if it stays in long enough then it will get holes in it and it will turn into a bit of acid. (Guilli)

What we found out...
At 2:30 - after about 6 hours, the tooth is starting to look a little bit brown...I'm glad it is not still a working tooth in anyone's mouth!

We have a holiday tomorrow - Constitution Day - Falling on December 10 every year, Constitution Day, a public holiday, commemorates the historic event on December 10, 1932, when King Prajadhipok (Rama VII), graciously presented the first-ever constitution to the Thai people. (From Ministry of Culture, Thailand website).

This means that we will be unable to show pictures of the tooth during the next 36 hours...

What will it look like when we come back to school on Friday?


  1. Dear mr Ben I say that after 1 day that tooth will disolve in to acid since the coke has a lot of sugar.


  2. I will come back and check but I hope that the tooth does not dissolve like Samuel says! That should be a good lesson for students about drinking coke! I wonder what would have happened if it had been a 'V' energy drink!

  5. Dear Mr Ben

  6. Mr Ben

    Do teeth rot?

    from Rita

  7. Dear Mr Ben I forgot to tell you that if you leave a tooth in tea, then the tooth would have the same colour as the coke.
