People do not like to floss their teeth and a new Harris Poll conducted on behalf of the American Academy of Periodontology confirmed that statement. Findings from the poll:
- More than 1/4 of patients are dishonest with their dentist about how often they floss their teeth
- More than 1/3 of Americans would rather do an unpleasant activity than floss their teeth such as do dishes or clean a toilet!
Start flossing now because:
- There is an intimate connection between oral health and overall health
- More than 1/3 of people meeting someone they are attracted to say a smile is the first thing they notice
- It is fun!
