Royal Pain in the Tooth

April 17th 2014 - A 15th century King, a parking garage, and his dental decay. "A study in the April 2013 British Dental Journal found that Richard III, the last English king to die in battle, had generally poor oral health, suffering from dental caries and tartar buildup. The study supports research that found, unlike modern day, people in higher social classes suffered a higher incidence of dental carries during the Middle Ages."
