Tiredness, Lack Of Time Keeping Canadians From Following Oral Hygiene Regimen

March 9, 2010: 07:10 AM EST
A Proctor & Gamble-sponsored study has found that only four percent of Canadians regularly adhere to the dentist-suggested daily routine of brushing, flossing and rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash. Time and tiredness were the main excuses for lax oral and dental care, the survey found. Though a large majority of Canadians (77 percent) are aware of the importance of regular dental checkups, and say they’d like a healthy-looking smile, about a quarter fail to see a dentist at least once a year, mainly because they can’t afford it, often because of a lack of dental insurance. Surprising finding from the survey: four percent of Canadians who don’t brush their teeth say they don’t know how to use a toothbrush.
