[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>>RACHEL: Rise and shine, it's time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show.


Start brushing on the top of your mouth, and brush the inside, outside, and chewing side of each tooth.


>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!


[THEME SONG ENDS]


>>RACHEL: It’s Teeth Week, and today we’ve got some riddles for you.


Here’s your first one:


Once you’re done brushing

Feel free to swallow me

The place where you’ll find me

Is a place with no gravity


What is this? Shout it out


[MUSIC BEGINS]


KID: EDIBLE...


>>RACHEL: Pretty Close, it’s EDIBLE TOOTHPASTE!


Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: -and brush your molars in the back, too.


Most toothpaste you should never swallow, but edible toothpaste is toothpaste that you can swallow after brushing your teeth.


[GULP]


>>RACHEL: Edible toothpaste was invented for astronauts.


>>ASTRONAUT: 3-2-1 IGNITION!


>>RACHEL: In space, there is almost no gravity, so things float around. That means if an astronaut spits in a spaceship, the spit will just float around. So we invented a special toothpaste that astronauts could swallow -  edible toothpaste!


[SFX BELL]


>>RACHEL: Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and brush your front teeth, too.


[MUSIC ENDS]


>>RACHEL: Here’s your next riddle:


I dig a hole in your teeth

Because your teeth are what I eat

I hopped a ride on something sweet

And now I grow, your teeth - my treat.


What is this riddle about?


[MUSIC BEGINS]


>>KID: A CAVITY!


>>RACHEL: Switch to the other side of bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: -and make little circles with your brush around each tooth.


A cavity is a hole in your tooth. And that hole starts forming because of PLAQUE…


[HORROR SOUND EFFECTS]


>>RACHEL: Plaque is a STICKY, SLIMY substance that STICKS to your teeth.


[SPLAT]


>>RACHEL: And plaque brings in acidic chemicals that eat your teeth and dig a hole -- a cavity! But  if you brush your teeth the best you can you might never get a cavity!


[BRUSHING SOUNDS]

[MUSIC ENDS]

[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>>RACHEL: You did a good job brushing this morning, enough to scare off any cavity. Come back tonight for more brushing. Until then…


>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
