The Truth About Your Teeth is a two-part series starting tonight on BBC One. 

Filmed extensively in the Dental Institute at King’s, this series offers a fresh look at the science behind teeth and dentistry, and what we can all do to improve our oral health.

Shot over a six-month period, the programmes feature patients undergoing treatment for missing or broken teeth, decay, gum disease, and a range of other problems – sometimes to the extreme.

The series also features a strong public health message, with experiments on and information about everything from correct tooth brushing to the effectiveness (or otherwise) of over-the-counter tooth whitening kits.

The programmes are presented by infectious diseases doctor and TV presenter Dr Chris van Tulleken, who also presents the popular children’s series Operation Ouch!, and Jasmine Harman, host of a number of well-known programmes including A Place in the Sun.

The documentary also features aerial shots of the King’s College Hospital site at Denmark Hill, which were filmed using a specialist camera mounted on a drone.

You can watch The Truth About Your Teeth on Thursday 4 June and Thursday 11 June 2015 at 9pm on BBC One.

Further information about the series, including trailers and clips for the series, are now available on the BBC website

Further information on the background contribution of King's researchers to the programme can be found here.
