Shockingly 1 in 5 people can’t remember when they last changed their toothbrush and 50% have never visited a dental hygienist. Thomas has taken his not so pearly whites to see Dr James, at 20 years old he has already lost several teeth. Thomas’s habits; smoking 20 a day and using fizzy drinks as mouthwash, has left Dr James with the only option of removing Thomas’s teeth and replacing them with dentures. Eight months since his dentures were fitted, Thomas pays Dr James another visit, his teeth are looking much healthier and Dr James is very impressed with the progress.
This new series explores the conditions and ailments that leave many of us a little red-faced and aims to de-stigmatise common complaints. Three doctors — Dawn Harper, Christian Jessen and Pixie McKenna — will be throwing open the doors of the clinic in a bid to tackle each condition head on, while attempting to take away the sting of shame.
