30% of young people have tooth decay, so our resident dentist Dr James hits the campsites of Wakestock to catch some teens with dirty teeth and give them what for. To help him he has a secret weapon – a chewable tablet that glows blue when someone has plaque on their teeth. Plaque is a film of bacteria that covers teeth, and within two weeks it can turn into harmful tartar which damages the teeth. Unfortunately, nearly all the teeth that Dr James puts to the test show evidence of plaque, so it seems some reeducation is in order!
