Check out this crazy article I found the other day:
A new survey released by GSK has revealed some astounding facts about the dental habits of us Brits.
Allow me to highlight some of the main statistics this survey found…
- 45% of 10,000 adults say they’ve gone to bed without brushing (either due to laziness, tiredness, or simply forgetting)
- One in five said they only brush with water
- 14% ‘brush’ their teeth with a finger
It’s simply mind boggling.
No surprise at all that 29% of these people have at least six fillings, and 67% have experienced tooth decay and cavities.
In this day and age, this shouldn’t be such a widespread problem.
Simply brush your teeth twice a day for a couple of minutes a day, floss/use mouthwash, and get regular check-ups.
That’s all that your teeth need of you.
