Statistics show that 24million Brits do not brush their teeth at least once a day
According to new research, a shocking number of Britons do not take their oral health seriously and fail to brush their teeth at least once a day. The report suggests that over 24 million people in Britain fail to brush regularly, despite the fact that around four in ten admit to feeling self-conscious about the way their teeth look.
Brits between the ages of 26 and 34 were the worst culprits for neglecting their dental health, with over half of respondents admitting that they did not brush at least once a day. People over the age of 55 were the most conscious brushers, with 68% brushing at least once during the day. The counties with the best oral hygiene turned out to be the north east, the south east, and East Anglia. The worst offenders were London, Northern Ireland, and Wales.
The research involved a survey of 2,000 adults in the UK, to find out how Brits feel about their teeth and also the teeth of others around them. Almost a quarter of those asked said that they were ashamed by the condition of their teeth and a shocking 40% said that they would never show their teeth while smiling.
