Tudor dentistry and caring for your teeth in Tudor times

As today is the anniversary of the death of Bishop John Aylmer, who is said to have had one of his teeth extracted in order to prove to Queen Elizabeth I that the pain wasn't as bad as she thought, I thought I'd share this talk from our archives. It's on tooth extractions, dentistry and how people cared for their teeth in Tudor times.
