Oral healthcare habits drop

30th May 2007

New research commissioned by the British Dental Health Foundation (BDHF) has revealed that habits relating to oral healthcare in the UK are getting worse.

The survey found that 12% of people brush their teeth a few times a week, or never, compared to 1.5% responding to a similar survey last year. Less than a third of people in Britain brush their teeth for the BDHF-recommended minimum of two minutes. BDHF chief executive Dr Nigel Carter noted that the number of people who do not even brush once a day is eight times that of last year.
