Dental Facts and Figures

20-07-2010

  • Scientific research has linked gum disease to heart disease, strokes, diabetes and premature and low birth weight babies

  • Eating sugar free foods isn’t just good for your waistline – it’s also much better for your teeth

  • Whilst fruit smoothies can help in providing some of your 5 a day fruit portion – they an be really bad for your teeth as it coats them in sugar – the tooth enemy

  • One third of people in Britain admit to brushing their teeth once a day or less

  • One out of every five people questioned couldn’t even remember when they last changed their toothbrush* (it is recommended to change it every 3 months)

  • People have admitted picking between their teeth with everything from pierced earrings to business cards and paperclips to screwdrivers – instead of cleaning with the recommended floss or an interdental brush

  • Fluoride is added to many toothpastes to help prevent decay – yet one in every three people thought it was either a mint flavour or a marketing gimmick

  • Fluoride is scientifically proven to be a “magic – bullet’ that helps prevent tooth decay – yet surprisingly its only added to less than 12% of UK water.

  • British is best in the eyes of the public. A resounding 8 out of 10 people would not consider travelling abroad for dental treatment – 6 out of every 10 still said that they would call their UK Dentist if things go wrong when they got home.
