hello Natalie, you can't measure tooth decay from X-ray. X-ray is just useful for the see the broken part and to check the root status. i won't go in details as i know that you are from KG ..... anyways about soaking the tooth in different mediums, you can't measure tooth decay this way either, just the acidity of the medium. The more acidic the medium, the quicker it will take to break the tooth so the best thing to do would be to time the breakdown of the tooth in different mediums... so ... the most acidic medium you'll find will most probably cola .... and off course you will get quicker results by renewing the liquids daily, since you'll be adding back more of the acid. have fun have a nice day sHiBBi :o)
