A nationwide survey was recently conducted to gain further insight into people’s oral health habits.

Results found, in the infographic below, that 62% brush their teeth for the recommended time of 2 minutes (according to Oral Health Foundation) with 4% brushing for less than 30 seconds. 73% of adults brush and floss their teeth at least twice a day and 23% only once a day. Flossing is recommended as it helps to reduce the chance of cavities and bacteria developing in between the teeth which you can’t reach by only brushing.
