The Project

Welcome to my workshop!
I’m Dentisha.

Lately I’ve been really interested
in things about teeth. The more
I learn, the more I want to know. I’ve
  been busy building some new gadgets
      and discovered a whole world
     that I never even knew existed -
            inside my mouth!

It’s all about bacteria. This stuff is ALIVE and it’s doubling in size every hour!

I know we can fight this - let’s kick some acid!

S. mutans

S. mutans Are Bacteria

One drop of saliva holds over a million bacteria. The worst for teeth are the acid-producing Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans). S. mutans turn the sugar we eat into lactic acid, slowly rotting our precious teeth.
