Its official, a survey of UK adults for Denplan found that men were more likely to brush their teeth just once a day, than women.
Overall the survey of 100 adults suggests billions of Britons are not taking proper care of their teeth with only 61 percent bothering to brush twice a day. The findings also indicated that fewer people are brushing their teeth twice a day than 30 years ago. Numerous studies have found brushing twice a day helps maintain good oral health and recommend brushing after meals to remove food particles and reduce plaque. Of the respondents who didn’t brush their teeth twice a day, 32 per cent thought it wasn’t necessary and 19 percent said that they couldn’t be bothered to brush twice a day.
In Ealing, Sparkle Dental Boutique’s Dental Therapist Hardip, says `It only takes four minutes of brushing a day to help avoid any dental problems that could cause pain, anti-social breath or even tooth loss. Good home care routines and keeping regular dental appointments are still the best defence against dental problems’.
