UNCOVERING THE SURPRISING SECRETS TO A HEALTHY MOUTH AND A BEAUTIFUL SMILE
The third special in the series (along with ‘Allergy’ & ‘Skin’) explores common dental complaints at a special pop-up clinic – unveiling surprising secrets that could reduce the need to drill and fill. A team of top dental experts look at the emerging links between oral and general health, and reveal how cutting-edge technology is redefining the trip to the dentist (especially important for those who are fearful!).
From the city to the outback, Teeth Clinic delves inside mouths to see what’s really behind a beautiful smile. In the city clinic, we meet a leader in dental innovation, whose research could produce a vaccine for severe gum disease. And in the outback, the clinic goes to the community, providing services to patients who’d otherwise face travelling prohibitive distances. This unique surgery offers members of a drought-stricken community alternatives to what could have cost them valuable time, money – or teeth.
