Do you brush your teeth twice a day?
Or maybe you brush your teeth more or less than twice a day?
A new report by broadcaster ITV News has revealed that over 24 million of us don’t brush our teeth at least once per day – that’s approximately 40% of the population!
With such a large amount of people not brushing their teeth at least once a day, it’s easy to see how a quarter of us are concerned about the health and appearance of our teeth.
Shockingly, those aged 26-34 came up in the report as being the worst at caring for their teeth, with over half of them not brushing their teeth at least once a day!
Look after your teeth and be proud of your smile
Good oral hygiene doesn’t begin at 35, to look after your teeth and to get a smile that you’re proud to show off, you need to look after your teeth from childhood. You should brush your teeth at least twice a day and you should strive to brush your teeth after every meal to prevent any sugars from damaging the enamel on your teeth.
With dazzling white teeth and Hollywood smiles being all the rage nowadays, it’s no wonder that teeth discolouration is a big talking point. Nearly a quarter of people surveyed admitted that they were concerned by the colour of their own teeth.
